Activism That Works

... Is rich, white, politically connected activism!

The pitch by a member of the Vancouver City Parks Board to a native band seeking possession of his favorite golf course:

"They are fine-tuning a pitch to encourage the 1,200-member Musqueam community to seek a 48-hectare piece of the Spirit Park in the University Endowment Lands instead of the 48-hectare course in Mr. Campbell's prosperous Vancouver-Point Grey riding."

Yes, that is correct: he want them to take University land instead.

Power to the (Right) People!
