On Nov. 24-25, 2005, Prime Minister Paul Martin promised national Aboriginal leaders at Kelowna five billion dollars for housing, health and education. This crucial commitment has since been ERASED by the Harper government. Instead, at least twenty billion has been contracted for 65 new American warplanes, all to be bought from and build by Lockheed Martin in the U.S.A. This fortune could produce 200,000 new, safe, warm, healthy homes and employ/train a million Canadians to do the job.
We simply cannot tolerate Ottawa's strangulation of nationally and desperately needed activity on Canada's number one priority need: Affordable Housing.
Our vision for northern housing is for every family to have a home that his healthy, well-constructed, well-maintained & energy efficient. A good housing strategy is composed of partnerships, which build capacity as well as homes, using as many local materials as is ecologically or economically practical.

At Frontiers Foundation’s recent Vision Quest and Annual General Meeting, the Parliament Hill demonstration as described herewith was discussed and approved for action.
At this January 12 meeting all aspects of this demonstration will be discussed. Olivia Chow, Jack Layton’s widow, has given her royal OK and will welcome hopefully 2,000 demonstrators to our “Pyramid of Hope” March 1, 2012 each carrying a tiny house. A local hobby shop is building and donating a model of an F-35 for the event. An Ottawa Native drum will provide appropriate songs.
Our Agenda on January 12 will include:
2. Choice of speakers
3. Transportation arrangements
