Enclosed for your information is a copy of a justifiably indignant letter to Canadian Indian Affairs Minister Tom Siddon regarding the federal government's latest so-called Lubicon "offer".



Noted copies of such letters should be sent to opposition politicians as well in order to generate some discussion in Parliament about the Mulroney government's blatantly manipulative and deceitful handling of the continuing Lubicon tragedy.


November 04, 1992, letter to Federal Indian Affairs Minister Tom Siddon from Project North -- Vancouver



Mr. Siddon:



We were deeply offended by your recent media portrayal of the "Revised Lubicon offer". How is it possible for you, as a representative of the people of Canada, to count as part of a settlement to Native Bands, the value of reserve lands which they will retain? If ever there was a perversion of justice, such arrogance must top the list!



We would very much appreciate your personal response to this. Please spare us the indignity of your propaganda packets.
