B.C. Indian Chiefs Register ‘Utter Disgust’ at Building Permit on Sacred Grace Islet Burial Ground
The British Columbia government has granted permits for a mansion to be built on the tiny burial-ground island of Grace Islet. Construction has already begun, and numerous First Nations are protesting the development.
"There are so many beautiful places on this island you can build houses on,” said one protester to the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN), noting the availability of land on the water, mountains and other scenic spots of Vancouver.
