To those opposed to S 881
By Jean Bland

To Johnnie Laird and who ever else is and has taken money provided by SEALASKA; how many of you from these communities (Thorne Bay; Coffman Cove; Port Protection; Naukati; Whale Pass; Hollis) are still working for companies who are contracted by SEALASKA and being paid by them?

It is a long drive to work. Will your communities give you jobs like Sealaska? It is disheartening to see how you who have worked for Sealaska can write these kind of things.

I am a Haida and Haida and Tlingets were here a long time.
