From Meghann Coughlan Hernandez – Re: MacGregor Blaming Mission, Aboriginals, For Abbotsford Unemployment Simply Doesn’t Add Up,

For Bill MacGregor to sit on his home near the top of Sumas Mountain, on unceded territory, snubbing his nose down at the reserve which is situated at the foot of a lake which colonisers drained whilst blaming 250 people for the unemployment rate of a stolen piece of land within arbitrary lines drawn in direct violation of the Royal Proclamation of 1763 for which he has been elected to manage by the descendants of those who attempted to eradicate, assimilate, sterilise and destroy the very people he speaks of… well, I don’t think I could adequately describe the level of disgust I feel for that man right now.
