There was a picture here of me at the home of artist Mark Homer in Sointula, British Columbia (1998). Because Blogger.com has threatened to close down my blog I removed the photograph.
I was fighting deportation from Canada at the time and Mark Homer was one of many Canadians who raised his voice in opposition to our deportation. I will be posting the letters he and many others wrote demanding a halt to our deportation.
Sointula originated as a cooperative community begun by the "Red" Finns who were escaping the persecution by the old Finnish feudal lords for their political beliefs in Finland.
Mark Homer was a fisherman; he died under mysterious circumstances. Mark Homer's dad was one of the founders of the left-led Fisherman's Union.
