Kieran really misses mark

Re: “Oppal’s bungling threatens benefits,” July 28 – Aug. 3

Mr. Kieran does not appreciate the lean, fiscally prudent organization that the Native Courtworkers is, nor does he appreciate the value of the organization’s participation in the inquiry. With respect, it seems his attitudes are reflective of many British Columbians who see Indigenous Peoples as “special interest.” For me, seeking justice is not a special interest, it is a constant desire that is so often unfulfilled by peace, order and good government.
