The boy from LPFN

Yesterday we had a crap ton of wood delivered from the Temiscaming Home Hardware for our dock rebuild and the delivery kid shared his life story with us while helping us unload it. He said he's a member of Long Point First Nation and moved to Temiscaming about 4 years ago. I learned through him that being native he is entitled to claim any crown land as his own as long as it doesn't belong to the government. He can live there for the rest of his life, pass it down generations, but cannot sell it.

Anyway I think we ended up hauling about 8 boat loads of wood in the pouring rain. It was a great day.
