We may, in 2006, feel fairly removed from Ipperwash and Mr. Harris. But a lot of people have waited a very long time for this - and we (Canada) owe it to them to pay attention. It's quite possible that Mr. Harris will cement his place in history over the course of the next few days - but only if we're watching.

This process is of stand alone importance and really shouldn't have to be sold in current contextual terms. Nevertheless, I've feel compelled to point out that this man's one-time Attorney General responsible for Native Affairs is now Canada's Finance Minister. Mike Harris is, by proxy, still a force in government.
