      not very good rick. I am telling it like this, “White man claimed they were helping White people by removing the Salvaged Indians as they called them back then and there. Now it is the Native American Indian that will save us from the White man. AIM, I’m all for it, this country and the one I live in, Kanata belongs to the indigenous peoples.
