In Canada, aboriginal land claims are taken seriously. The BC Supreme court
recently ordered 10 acres in the middle of Vancouver to be returned to the
Squamish First Nation. The doctor's philosophizing is the sort one hears

seats and whose voices have been polished to a smooth gravel by decades of
tumbling in stale smoke and cheap alcohol.
