#4 Do You Hear The Children Sing?
Land claims can take generations to settle. Sometimes communities lose patience, sometimes development forces them to take a stand or risk losing their land forever. Barricades have become a familiar scene in Canada. The land issue is rarely settled when barricades come down. Instead the community is left with court cases, post traumatic stress, and unresolved human rights issues. Some of those people are children..

Land claims can take generations to settle. Sometimes communities lose patience, sometimes development forces them to take a stand or risk losing their land forever. Barricades have become a familiar scene in Canada. 

The land issue is rarely settled when barricades come down. Instead the community is left with court cases,  post traumatic stress, and unresolved human rights issues.

Some of those people are children.. 

There is a saying I told yu about last time: we get the grandchildren we deserve. We raised this generation together Canada, your people and mine. Who did these children become?

This is their episode.  

In the first half of this episode, we’ll introduce you to three people who survived land conflicts.

In the second half, they share their experiences with each other as they meet for the first time. 

Please be warned: This episode contains two descriptions of violence against children.

In part two: After a peaceful reclamation of the army base built on their land in 1993, elders of Stoney Point lead a movement to take back Ipperwash Provincial Park, which was also part of their original land and contained a burial ground. Racism and political interference turned a peaceful movement into a violent act of state aggression on September 6, 1995. This episode recalls the events of that night, and examines the fallout in the 28 years since, asking if reconciliation will ever be possible for the people of Stoney Point.
