Last month you read about the devastating fire which destroyed Lytton B.C. The residents are dealing with confusion about where to go for support. It's a problem some of them think could be solved with the support of the provincial and federal governments. There have been fundraisers, but how many of them are trustworthy is a moot point.
Patrick Michell, chief of the Kanaka Band in the area said that determining the legitimacy of fundraisers has been a huge problem for the community.
To quote,''...I am concerned about scams, wasted donations, profiteering and ensuring sustainable supports given the time it’s going to take to get the Lytton 1200 homes.''
So, we have two very sick symptoms of capitalism at work here: governments who don't care and those who seek to profit from others’ misfortune.
