WENDAKE, QC, May 17, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - "It is always very difficult to
go against the wind, and to stand up straight and say no when the
easier path is to give in and go in the direction of the wind. I will
always remember the image of Elijah Harper's courage and determination
and his profound conviction", stated Ghislain Picard, Chief of the
Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador, who expressed his
sincere condolences at the passing away of Elijah Harper earlier today.
It is important for all to remember that Elijah Harper's action, now
part of our history, made a significant impact not only for all First
Nations but for all citizens as well. One day, it will be important for
Canada to find the courage to answer the question, what is the place of
First Nations in this country? When that day comes, we all should
remember the courage of Elijah Harper.
