Arrest all the regional Indian politicians.
Comment by Janice Robinson on 17th April 2012
Arrest them for their wanton neglect and ignorance of the plight of their people. Arrest them for milking the treaty process for all its worth (to benefit themselves and their uneducated progeny) while their nations wither and suffer in drunken shame. Arrest them for perpetuating the practice of hiring unqualified friends and family to deliver crucial health programs (especially alcohol and drug programs, mental health, etcetera). Arrest them for turning the Residential School issue into this farce it has turned out to be, instead of a genuine opportunity for healing and inclusion. Lies, lies, and more lies.

Look at their wonderful homes! Look at their 80 thousand dollar vehicles! Look at their uneducated children, standing around in the latest fashions...waiting for uncle to facilitate that next nowhere job. Look at their friend, Elmer Derrick! No shame to their game. Me, me, me. Money, money, money. Look at our drunken relations wandering the streets....disrespecting their ancestors, their people and themselves. These are just some of the legacies of Indian politicians, and their treaties. Indian politicians got the nerve to blame all this on the white man and the Indian Act. Yes, you can arrest Health Canada too, if you want....but not for the salt content of our fast food. Arrest them placating these Indian politicians and abiding by their useless, harmful advice on First Nations health programs. Arrest health Canada for the absence of a much-needed regional detox! Arrest them for continually using the excuse that a detox is a provincial responsibility. We are dealing with suffering First Nations alcoholics and addicts! This is a federal responsibility.

I really don't think that it's health Canadas responsibility to keep you from eating too much salt.

If you want to be an idiot and eat 10 pounds of salt and die of a stroke then that's your fault, not health Canadas.

Clean up this town
Comment by ulf on 16th April 2012
It's about time the counci lof this town took a stand against the intoxication that's happening It is unsafe for people to go to the downtown area at night. A town of this size should not have the problems the citizens of Terrace are having.

this is the police report . The police read it . They are under attack just like the rest of us and ours and their children . They suffer more hyper tension and high blood pressure(salt poisoning) than most of us due to the idiots that they keep from kicking in our doors . If none of us can escape the salt poisoning then they should be on our side . harper is gutting inspection capability of the health ministry . and good luck to anyone that tries or has tried to talk to them . If there are indeed enemies of the canadian people as harper asserts then we are the front line and must identify who they are . I have done so in the only way that is open to us . If government wants to be our nannies then they should at least prevent the food we eat from killing us. The salt content in our food is regulated by the harper government.

What the heck does your comment have to do with the article?

I'm not (at this time) questioning the veracity of your assertions - just the appropriateness of them vis a vis the article you're commenting on.

Comment by Terry on 16th April 2012
the federal gov. is responsible for salt in our food in stores and restaurants . They have done nothing about canada having the highest levels salt in most of the world .to the point of 40% of deaths of canadian are directly attributed to high levels of salt . Our children will live shorter lives at the hands of our federal gov. This is murder by omission and the deaths will be and are in hundreds of thousands for generations to come . If this is not criminal .I don't know what is . Health canada is an enemy of canadian men, women and children.
