Hi all, I hardly ever post my own content on here/don’t have many followers but I’m hoping that this post can still gain some traction. 

Recently the federal government of Canada declined to invest $10 million into an all-weather access road to Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, which has been under a boil water advisory for 17 years. Without a road, they can’t get a water treatment plant. Both the provincial government of Manitoba and the city of Winnipeg have pledged to pay their share of the costs, and it’s unbelievable and disgusting to me, and to many other Canadians, that the federal government refused to do the same. 

Here is a link to a fundrazr page started by Winnipegger Rick Harp, with the goal of raising the $10 million our federal government won’t give. It’s an all or nothing campaign meaning that if the $10 million isn’t raised before the end date, August 29, then you keep your money. I know $10 million is a lot of money, but if we can at least raise part of the money I believe it would, at the very least, send a strong message of disapproval to the government.

Canada Day is tomorrow, July 1st, but what many Canadians seem to forget is whose land we built this country on. Even if you don’t have money to contribute, please consider reblogging to bring awareness to the campaign. At the time of my writing this, the fundraiser has had 190 contributors and made over $20,000, which goes to show this is an issue Canadians care about. Those of us with clean water readily available often take it for granted, meanwhile there are people in our own province who don’t even have access to it. Thank you all for reading, and hopefully we can make a change in our province.

Why do I have animals skins/skulls? Why don’t you have any? Is there something wrong? Look, here’s a fox pelt and a coyote skull. Welcome to the VC. Read this pamphlet with all the national and state laws. Maceration buckets are to your left, and remember to use protection.

Films

Marilyn appeared in twenty-nine completed films and was working on number thirty when she died. She made twenty-four of those movies during the first half of her fifteen year career, up to and including 1954, before she rebelled against the studio system for greater control over the material she performed.

Some confusion surrounds which was Marilyn’s first picture. Dangerous Years (1947) was made after Scudda Hoo! Scudda Hay! (1948) but was released first. Some sources affirm that Marilyn’s first film appearance was not in either of these movies, but in The Shocking Miss Pilgrim (1947); if this was the case, her performance as a switchboard operator wound up on the cutting room floor. Other films in production at this time, in which contract player Marilyn may have featured, were You Were Meant For Me (Marilyn was reputed to be part of the chorus line during dance numbers), The Challenge, Mother Wore Tights, and Green Grass of Wyoming.
