The government is changing our lives in the Yukon so much it is almost like the people need to do something drastic.

Politicians change things that people don’t even know about in their legislature.

They bring their stupid ideas from down south and east and bring them up here and into our government system.

Look at all our stupid circles they are making for our roundabouts. I thought they got rid of this on Two Mile Hill years ago. I guess it wasn’t such a stupid idea after all.

They come up here hoping to strike it rich with pipelines and mines, but you know, wherever they go they always leave their garbage behind, then move on to another place to do the same.

We, the Yukon people, are tired of all your garbage. So, get on your Mayflower, take your garbage with you and clear our land and leave it for people who have respect for our native land.

I have seen animals shot, like grouse and big game, and left to rot. This is our traditional food.

People go out with their four-wheelers, tear up our land, shoot our animals and think this was all fun. We have way too many people up here already. The government needs to change this.

We don’t need an economy up here. If you don’t like it, leave, and return to the filth you make.

The Yukon was always a beautiful place to live until we started having all these people, who don’t belong here, being disrespectful to our land that we depend on.

The government needs to change their diapers, wash up and learn some respect.

Even the city is money hungry. They are just busybodies making life miserable for other people.

They are the ones that should be paying taxes to the First Nation government for the use of our land. This includes the government as a whole, who are responsible for all the damage they have done. They can’t even accept what they’ve done without turning their head the other way. When a nonaboriginal person makes a mistake, they always look the other way.

The government is like a tree full of monkeys, all on different limbs and different levels. The monkey on the top looks down and sees a tree full of smiling faces. The monkey on the bottom looks up and sees nothing except asses.
