That's what I'm trying to do, why are you so against it?
This is my latest effort, what was yours other than this stellar post??

First Nations people in Canada live in "Third World" conditions, with a lack of access to clean water and decent housing, the national chief of the Assembly of First Nations said Tuesday.
The First Nations people goes to the tip of South America so you don’t have to far to go to find stories that are similar to yours. It is not an accident you are as ill as you are in spite of spending large amounts the health of the people is worse when they were the only people on the land. They take notes on the ailments but no solution comes let alone one that is cheap and long lasting.
When you allow a contractor to build a whole village at once the warranty should be on the far side of 50 years rather than the shy side of 5 years and claims the owners were the cause of the break-down.
You could have clean water using sand as a filter. If you have boil-water days you need water purification tablets such as MMS2 as that is used in 3rd world countries to kill malaria ‘germs in water’. It is neutral 1 hour after being dissolved. It should be as common as Aspirin is down here.
The design that makes for a ‘warm dry’ home contributes to better health. That is lost if the home is dry and warm but the stove allows traces of carbon monoxide to bring about the same conduits as a damp moldy house does. The info is available, you have to find it as the Govt has a different plan in mind for you and it isn’t any different than the past.
There are a few DIY sites, including Primitive Skills Workshop, aka bush craft tropical jungle style.
Once you know what the final product is supposed to look like you price it out and then look for a cheaper solution. The CRT TV are still common and more durable, what they need is a docking station so a modern phone can be plugged in to act as the tower and network connection to the village more than outside. That is still 2x the vid playback format and a touch=screen add-on would make the village 21st century
If you have ‘good water days’ a storage tank at home could be used in the bad days, as well as being able to be treated further so they have the cleanest water possible. It is not 3rd world as you need power, a very small amount so there is no reason that is not an option that is given to you by the company that installed the water system in the first place. Each residential kitchen could probably access water with just a shallow well and an above ground septic tank that can be collected and gray water going to the landscape. The off grid ones have 3 stages and ‘top soil’ is the waste product after the flammable gasses are collected for use.
Repair is better than nothing and the more substandard one does the higher it is on the list. Rotted spots can be treated for insects and mold and given an epoxy barrier and big voids filled with spray on foam and trimmed and covered as usual. Since all of this is in a village setting only a few people need to know how to do it and thy order in bulk for that reason and it is 10x cheaper than the single use item.
Being remote and no inspection take place unless it is an emergency you can get away with a few things. Flax straw is a multi-use product that should come as a round bale and then as many as you can fit in 1 load at a time. In a rundown yard there will be ‘wet spots’ that could have some straw spread out as filler and then a thin layer of ground cover and the standing water hazard is eliminated using local recourses and talent. Modified that method can be used anyplace soil-cement was used soft spots in road can also be repaired the same way, the longer the fiber the better.
"We rank no better than a Third World country, and that is simply unacceptable. There is no good reason why our people should be as poor as they are," Phil Fontaine said in Toronto.
As far as I know you are not poor, what has happened is the ones designated as your connection to the outside world are under direction to make the lives of most of you as miserable as possible. Keeping you in poor heath keeps you from exploring other things; taking notes means you are the object of an experiment that has to be as hidden as possible.
Borax, white vinegar will not hurt a baby, it will permanently end the mold spores that are causing the rash. When that is verified the rest of what I’m going to cover might also turn out to be helpful. Making your own ozone is just as easy and even more effective.
Using a spinning washing machine tub to get the right texture of clay to use on a leaky woodstove to make it as airtight as any new one and have the intake use outside air would eliminate all cases of ‘cabin fever’. Bush life doesn’t have to be primitive or harsh on the people. If you live in an Igloo most of the year a Netflix account would be ‘money well spent’.
In a keynote address at an assembly National Housing and Water Policy Forum, Fontaine said there is no question that the federal government must spend more money to address the serious problems in First Nations communities.
If money is being stolen then more means the thieves get a bigger haul. If the Government is doing studies on your health issues and those same conditions do not exist in the lower areas they you UN rights are being taken away. The studies are done by the Canadian Gov’t and if they are not the end user and the data is sent out of the country it is no longer a ‘local issue’ and the Gov’t is the defendant only rather than Defendant and Judge like they are used to.
INTERPOL is your best bet for an independent audit, your call.
Fontaine said problems include unsafe drinking water, crowded homes, high unemployment, high suicide rates, limited access to quality health care, and thousands of children being looked after by provincial child-welfare authorities.
Davis Icke is quite good at exposing why families are broken apart. The Bankers he mentions are the ones who are responsible for studies about your ill health and fractured social structure. You are the Gaza of North America over any repairs being made that improved your health and little changed showing what the cause was in the first place. Bad water called for a band-aid, permanent mold is a death sentence
The damage already done cannot be fully undone unless you look at a recovery that is a few generations wrong. A smart phone is the only way to make your own network so the ones in the remote places can follow along in real time.
There are boil water advisories on more than 100 reserves, with about 35 communities in crisis over lack of access to clean drinking water. As well, on average, there are more than four people in every First Nations home, Fontaine said.
As mentioned you need a full refund and a well in every kitchen or a community well the water is treated to 21st century standards using ozone created by a small solar panel where it is to be used.
"When we start talking about the many crisis situations that exist in our communities, the response is usually: more money is not the answer," he said. "We all know more money is needed."
Fontaine said the government has made millions available to upgrade military equipment for the Armed Forces and to correct a perceived fiscal imbalance among some provinces.
Money is not the problem, other than you need a big refund for the snake oil that has been sold to you over the last 100 years.
If the village can follow events real time from home rather than the vocal ones getting 15 minutes per year. 500 villagers searching the net for some information are going to have better results than a person whose news is on paper that is a month old when he sees it for the 1st time. You should only have to spend money on that that, UN standards living conditions were sold to you at premium prices, you got garage sale materials. The criminal part is it was designed to make you more ill rather than less. The common internet tern is ‘disposable people’
If the federal government wants to make money the answer to problems, it clearly can, he said.
"The health of our people relies on clean water, clean air and healthy homes," he said.
Fontaine acknowledged, however,that First Nations people must help to find the solutions to existing problems by working with government officials and business leaders.
They have been the ones giving you guidance in the past. You have access to the net and there is information that will help you. It is free and the advice is time proven and it will correct what the Govt has wrecked, over a long period of time.
"It is all up to us. We must do it. We must create the solutions ourselves. Our community must decide on our future. We must work together to fix the system that has produced the results that we are living today," he said.
First you have to connect them all in real time. You can legally download this whole site and it will fit on 1 cd . If you do not get ill in the first place you are better off than getting ill and not getting attention. The Govt has better things to do than chase down somebody in the bush with a box of borax, that is as long as you keep it as quite as possible. You aren’t the only ones that will be receiving this.
The ‘mange cure’ in the pet section is also safe for children with head lice. A fine comb used everyday will also work.
Notice I didn't 'bother the collective; with something as trivial as this matter. Notice I left out that Boomer opened this topic after he abandoned the bombing children in Gaza thread rather than asking him if it was another 'see what we can get away with without being challenged' topic. If this place can be classified as 'racist' as only one group is exempt from chastisement then you add the 'extremist' element to it. Not very assertive when in front of an person who is frank and a bit blunt at the best of times. Uncouth is not something I have been sheltered from. Camp cooks that were women were the best by far. so laughing went hand in hand with it, not so much in the here and now.
I didn't fail the smell test you and the rest of the collective did.
is where someone thinks you’re inferior because of your colour, ethnicity, nationality or race. This can result in them treating you differently or unfairly, this is called racial discrimination
is a type of racism where someone’s bullying focuses on your race, ethnicity or culture. Racism and racial bullying are wrong and you can get help to make it stop.
Racism and racist bullying can include:
- being called racist names or being sent insulting messages or threats
- having your belongings damaged or having to see racist graffiti
- personal attacks, including violence or assault
- being left out, treated differently or excluded
- people making assumptions about you because of your colour, race or culture
- being made to feel like you have to change how you look
- racist jokes, including jokes about your colour, nationality race or culture.
Racism can affect anyone. It can make you feel like you’re not important or don’t fit in. You might feel upset, depressed or angry. You can be affected by it even when it’s not aimed at you, like if you hear someone discriminating against someone’s culture.
Your gut tells you they don’t like you
If you feel like your co-workers don’t like you, then it could just be in your head, but it could also be true. If they treat you differently than everyone else, then you’re probably not their favourite person. Trust your gut and continue looking for other signs if you have a strong feeling about this.
They don’t smile when you’re around
We’re not talking about the occasional bad day or mood swing. If your co-workers make a conscious effort not to smile when you’re in the room, then something isn’t right.
They cannot maintain eye contact with you
It is difficult to look someone straight in the eye when you do not like or respect them, says Ms Taylor. If you notice that your colleagues avoid eye contact while speaking with you, then those are probably the reasons.
“They’re afraid that you may be able to detect hostility, so the path of least resistance is for them to look away or avoid being around you wherever possible,” Ms Taylor said.
They constantly stare at you
Alternatively, a prolonged, intense stare can also be a sign of rudeness, aggression or hostility, CNN reported.
Whether or not someone avoids your gaze or gives you a hostile glare depends on their personality and whether or not they’re comfortable with coming across as aggressive.
Then again, it’s possible that the starer is just awkward or zoning out.
They avoid you
Writing for the Muse, Kat Boogard gave a striking example of the lengths someone might go to in order to escape the presence of a disliked co-worker: “When it’s just the two of you waiting for an elevator, he decides to walk down the stairs – all 14 flights.”
If you notice that your co-workers take the stairs when they see you waiting for the elevator or they wait until you return from the break room before they head in, then those are good signs that they’re avoiding you.
They don’t acknowledge your presence
If your colleagues don’t say “good morning” when you arrive or “have a great night” on their way out, they may be telling you they don’t like you, said Ms Taylor.
They feed the rumour mill
Concerns about colleagues bickering about you can lower your morale (Shutterstock)
This is childish and unprofessional behaviour, but it happens in workplaces all the time: someone doesn’t like you, so they spread rumours.
They’re short with you
If you ask “how’s it going?” and they always respond with “OK” or “fine” – or if their emails always get straight to the point and never begin with a friendly “hello” or “good afternoon” – then this may be a sign that they’re not a huge fan of yours.
“If they sound like a moody teenager, then that’s a pretty big red flag,” said Mr Kerr.
They give off negative body language
Whether it’s a subtle eye roll or constantly assuming a closed-off position with arms folded across their chest, or they don’t look up from their computer screen when you enter their office, your co-workers’ body language will often reveal their true feelings toward you, Mr Kerr said.
They communicate with you primarily via email, even though you sit close by
If your co-workers don’t like you, they’ll probably try to limit their in-person communication with you. If you notice a shift toward more digital correspondence, that’s a sign.
They never ask about your personal life
If you notice that your colleagues speak with each other about their kids or hobbies, but never bring up these topics with you, they’re probably just not interested in hearing about your life, says Mr Kerr.
They never invite you to social events
If you never make the cut for lunch, happy hour or project meetings over coffee, your co-workers may be trying to send you a message.
They constantly disagree with you
Bad relations at work can damage the gratification you get from your employment (Shutterstock)
Continuously gunning down your ideas is a sign they don’t like you.
“If it feels like someone shoots down every thought before you’ve even finished a sentence, then it’s often because their dislike is so strong that they are biased against anything you suggest, even when it’s a great idea,” said Mr Kerr.
They don’t ever include you in their office bantering or humour
“Joking around is a key way that relationships become cemented in any workplace and not inviting you into the inner circle of bantering is a sign your co-workers may not feel comfortable around you enough to think of you as one of ‘the team,’” said Mr Kerr.
They steal credit for your ideas
Not being credited properly for your work can decrease your productivity (Shutterstock)
These co-workers could just be “glory hogs,” said Ms Taylor.
But if they go out of their way to steal the limelight from you and only you, they may be trying to drive you out.
They assume unauthorised power
Sometimes co-workers who want to muscle in on your position will play boss even when they have no authority, said Ms Taylor.
They create cliques that are reminiscent of high school
If you feel like you’re in a scene from the movie Mean Girls and you’re not invited to hang out or sit with any of the office cliques, your colleagues probably don’t like you very much.
There’s a fundamental lack of trust
If you’re questioned excessively about your motives or your co-workers only dole out information on a need-to-know basis, they may be trying to sabotage your career, said Ms Taylor.
They try to encourage you to leave the company
If throwing you under the bus doesn’t do the trick, then your co-workers may try other tactics for getting rid of you.
If they start sending you job postings at other companies, offer to put you in touch with contacts elsewhere or tell you that they think you’d be “happier” or “more successful” in another environment – when you’re perfectly happy and thriving where you are – then it’s probably not because they’re concerned about your well-being.
Chances are, they just don’t like you and want you gone.
They throw you under the bus
Do your co-workers throw you under the bus when something goes wrong? Do they tattle on you for saying or doing something against company policy? Do they run to tell your boss any time you make a mistake?
Then they’re probably trying to get you fired.
They never make you or your work a priority
Another big sign your co-workers despise you: “They never make your concerns or problems a priority and they don’t treat your work with the same level of urgency that they do your colleagues”, Kerr said.
They get defensive around you
“If they often and immediately get defensive around you, it could indicate that there’s a lack of trust, and possibly deeper dislike,” said Ms Kerr.
