    Imagine, if you will, you have a home. You've lived in it for numerous years and have spent a lot of time and money fixing things up to be your dream location.

    Or, you own a business that's been in existence for many years. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears, you're finally seeing the fruits of your labor and business is booming.

    Now, imagine if you will, you get a notice that you're on "ancestral lands" and you have so many days to vacate the property because a group of aboriginals claims the land as theirs.

    Think it far fetched? Not in Canada.

    This has the ability to wreak havoc on economic development as well as existing businesses and homes.

    Of course, the liberals are cheering the decision. I wonder, however, how long they'll cheer when they find out that anything they own can be forfeit if it's determined it's on land claimed to be aboriginal land?

    As usual, those that are cheering the decision (aside from the First Nations) are those who think money comes from banks, food comes from supermarkets, and fuel appears magically at a gas station. The economic impact of the decision could have far reaching implications.

    Gotta wonder if the Supreme Court has been taking "How to drive business away in droves" lessons from the idiots in California.

    And it begins.

    This is only the tip of the iceberg. I fully expect chaos to reign within a year after all the different bands in Canada start filing their claims.
