      First Nation people rely on the Friendship Centers in the cities, as a connection with the people,culture, language, support system, education, employment, and social network and need a place to go to for help. To pull core funding from Native Friendship centres in any city, is such an injustice towards Native people, especially those who need support from the Friendship Centre in Montreal.

      Parce que les autochtones du Québec doivent avoir leur place à eux, celle qui leur revient. Ceux qui ont fait le saut de vivre dans une grande ville doivent avoir leur place, leur lieu de rassemblement, d'appartenance. On le fait pour les autres ethnies, alors les autochtones ont encore davantage le droit d'avoir "leur" place et bien plus que n'importe qui d'autres... Merci!

      I can't believe this is true. As a previous poster said, it's a shame; this center is a vital core of the native community here in Montreal.
