Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Could someone explain to me in plain English what this guy is talking about?

There is privately owned property that was shipped overseas hundreds of years ago and has a well documented provenance. The current owners are sending it to be restored by experts in the field. These experts happen to be in Canada.

What decisions are being made that have any impact on the lives of anyone who has no rights on this property?

I don't get it. Or am I getting it and it doesn't pass basic logic? My French heritage doesn't give me rights on the resoration of a Montgolfier balloon should one surface.

I can understand wanting to get close to ones own history and the accoutrements of ones culture. That's not what they seem to be campaigning for.

The irony that the oldest canoes exist because of the preservation efforts of, OMG Euros!, is not lost one me. Just one of the peculiar things about stuff. If you can make it you're more likely to let one rot since you can make another if you need it. If you can't make it, you'd better take care of the one you have.

Yeah, I agree. I understand the old canoe is being restored and will return to the museum in Ireland. Everyone can enjoy it there.

I lament that no one is building birch bark canoes in Fredericton anymore. I'm not about to start. But Id love to own one.
