This blog post is related to the video we watched on native reserve conditions in class the other day. I found an article that looks at this topic in more detail. http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2011/06/09/living_conditions_on_first_nations_reserves_getting_worse_ag.html
When I read this article I found it quite dissapointing that there are communities within in Canada that are living in third world conditions. In most native reserves there isn't safe housing and there is limited clean drinking water. Also most students don't complete highschool making it very hard for them to find jobs in the future. I personally want to know where all the money the government gives to natives goes because conditions within the reserves are getting worse. I think that the government should sit down with natives and teach them how to spend their money more wisely. I think that if the government worked with natives it would help improve the conditons on the reserves a lot.
How do you guys think we could improve the conditions?
