‘Happy Sir John A. Macdonald Day’

Despite the ongoing attempts of the racist Aboriginal Industry and its foolish ‘allies’ to diminish his accomplishments and demean him personally, fair-minded Canadians – and that’s most of us – will take a moment to give thanks to the man who, more than any other, stubbornly kept pushing for his vision of what became Canada.

“Sir John A., in my opinion, is the ‘godfather of genocide’.”

“A group of ‘indigenous’ protesters in Ontario is taking credit for chasing the name of Canada’s first prime minister off the name of a local pub.

“It’s a huge victory for us,”
said Theresa Eagles, a member of ‘Idle No More Kingston/Katarokwi’.
“There’s {sic} been a lot of people who agree Sir John A. needs to be in a museum. Not in public for everyone to celebrate.”

“This week, the name of ‘Sir John’s Public House’ in Kingston was shortened to ‘The Public House’.

“The owners said it was because of the group’s protests and their desire to honour the ‘spirit of {one-way} reconciliation’ as the country grapples with the {partly} negative legacy of the Indian residential school system.

“A system Sir John A. Macdonald is credited with supporting and enforcing.

“One of the reasons that we choose to attack symbols like John A. in Canada, as well as many other approaches to the activist work we do here, is because there’s these symbols of Canada (that) are symbols of racism and symbols of our ‘genocide’ and our oppression,”
said Krista Lukes, another member of ‘Idle No More’.
“He’s hugely celebrated here.”

“The name change, which is getting cheers and jeers on social media, is one of many ways ‘indigenous’ people want to build a more inclusive community, Lukes added.

“In Kingston, it’s a long fight. We’ve been protesting the celebration of John A. for five years.”

Fans of Macdonald usually raise a glass publicly by his statue in town as his birthday is celebrated this week. Lukes said that event was cancelled last year after her group set up a demonstration.

“The way such monuments are being viewed is under debate following protests and violence in the United States. Macdonald, as a founder of the Dominion of Canada, has a legacy associated with treaties, residential schools and the ‘Indian Act’.

“Sir John A., in my opinion, is the ‘godfather of genocide’,”
added Eagles.
“The fact that Sir John A.’s pub has changed their name, I believe, is a huge step in the right direction for us.”

“The activists now have their sights set on getting rid of the Macdonald statue and a train marked in his honour across from City Hall. However, they are expecting opposition like they saw in September.

“Lukes said the pub called the police when they protested a drinking promotion in Macdonald’s name.

“As long as symbols of our oppression are celebrated as a source of pride, we’re going to continue to have a lot of work to do to fight racism,”
she said.

Macdonald is considered one of Kingston’s heroes and the pub reflects that. The building served as his law office from 1849-60.

“Memorabilia and menu items in his names will remain, the owners said.”

“Controversy is brewing over the legacy of Sir John A. Macdonald and whether elementary schools in Ontario should bear his name.

The ‘Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario’ is pushing to remove the name of Canada’s first Prime Minister from a handful of schools across the province

“The ETFO said using Sir John A. Macdonald’s name creates an ‘unsafe environment’ for kids to learn and work in because Macdonald was a supporter of residential schools back in the 1800’s… {What hysterical, immature nonsense…}

“Over the years, a number of protests have been held in Kingston during Sir John A. Macdonald celebrations. The {racist} group, “Idle No More”, has participated. Member, Natasha Stirrett, said the peaceful demonstrations are meant to highlight the Prime Minister’s role in establishing residential schools.

“We wanted a peaceful demonstration that raised awareness and builds communities in terms of having conversations of why it is not OK to celebrate genocidal historical figures,”
said Stirrett.

“Schools aren’t the only facilities to bear Sir John A. Macdonald’s name. Buildings and highways are also named after him and he’s featured on the $10 bill.

“It’s unclear whether the call by the elementary teachers union will influence school boards to consider stripping his name from schools.”

‘Paying for the Truth’

The Aboriginal Industry works hard at silencing opposition, and a courageous Canadian Senator is their latest victim: 

“Sen. Lynn Beyak, known for {correctly} defending residential schools as “well-intentioned”, has been kicked out of the ‘Conservative’ caucus after she refused to remove “racist” comments {letters of support from Canadians} posted to her Senate website.

“Beyak had posted roughly 100 letters in support of her earlier defence of residential schools…to her Senate website {Excerpts and link at bottom of post}.

“In a statement, ‘Conservative’ Leader Andrew Scheer said he found out about the letters on Tuesday and asked Beyak to remove some of the comments, but she refused…

“Who would be naïve to think that alcohol, drugs, incest would not have found [their] way into the lives of the North’s children,”  read one of the letters flagged by Scheer’s office {Why?}.

“I’m no anthropologist but it seems every opportunistic culture, subsistence hunter/gatherers seeks to get what they can for no effort. There is always a clash between industrial/organized farming culture that values effort as opposed to a culture that will sit and wait until the government gives them stuff,” read  another.  {http://lynnbeyak.sencanada.ca/p107962/ }

“Scheer said promoting that comment {posting it is not ‘promoting’ it} was

“unacceptable for a Conservative parliamentarian.”

“To suggest that ‘indigenous’ Canadians are lazy compared to other Canadians, is simply racist,” he said in a statement.

“Racism will not be tolerated in the ‘Conservative’ caucus or ‘Conservative’ Party of Canada.”

“While she holds no party status, Beyak can remain a member of the Senate…

“Beyak, appointed to the Senate by then Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2013, had already been removed, by then-interim leader Rona Ambrose, from all Senate committees for her {accurate and fair} comments…

“Scheer’s spokesperson, Jake Enwright, said there’s 

“a fine line between espousing distasteful views on a policy position and willingly promoting unacceptable ‘racist’ comments.”

“Sen. Larry Smith, leader of the ‘Conservative’ Senate caucus, said Beyak’s removal from the Senate caucus and the National ‘Conservative’ Party of Canada caucus came following consultations with Scheer.

“As an internal party issue, I consider [the] matter closed and will have no further comment,” he said.

“Minister of Crown-‘Indigenous’ Relations Carolyn Bennett said it’s “disappointing” the ‘Conservative’ leadership allowed Beyak to use her position in the Senate to

“espouse her ill-informed {? See below} and offensive views about Canadian history.”

“Although Senator Beyak has been finally removed from the Conservative caucus, it is more than disappointing that her appointment by the Conservatives allows her continue to use parliamentary resources to validate the views of those who refuse to accept the ‘truth’ and propagate the ‘misinformation’ and prejudice that continue to feed racism in our country,” she said in a statement…”

Senator Lynn Beyak (APTN)

“Scheer said in a statement that he had learned on Tuesday that Beyak had posted approximately 100 letters from Canadians in support of her position on residential schools to her Parliamentary website.

“He said the vast majority of letters focused on the history of residential schools, while others contained comments about ‘indigenous’ Canadians in general.

“The ‘Conservative’ leader said he had asked Beyak to remove one of the letters that suggested ‘indigenous’ people want to get things for “no effort” and she refused, resulting in her removal from caucus…

“As a result of her actions, ‘Conservative’ Senate Leader Larry Smith and I have removed Sen. Lynn Beyak from the ‘Conservative’ National Caucus. Racism will not be tolerated in the ‘Conservative’ caucus or ‘Conservative’ Party of Canada,” Scheer said…”

–‘Sen. Lynn Beyak kicked out of Conservative caucus’,
Canadian Press, January 4, 2018


“‘Conservative’ leader Andrew Scheer will pay the price at the ballot box for banishing Sen. Lynn Beyak from the ‘Conservative’ caucus, according to Nick Beyak, the senator’s son who is also a city councillor in Dryden, Ont…

“Nick Beyak said he believes many Conservative supporters are disappointed with Scheer’s move to kick the Senator out of caucus and with the party’s previous disciplinary actions against his mother.

“For the Leader of the Opposition to want to stifle comments from Canadians is not a strategy for election,” said Nick Beyak in a telephone interview Friday.

“It is already affecting their fundraising. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, the majority of Canadians agree with the comments Sen. Beyak has said.” 

“Nick Beyak said his mother is not a racist and was speaking the truth in her comments on residential schools.

“How can you say that nurses and priests were bad people and did no good at those schools?” said Nick Beyak.

“How can a logical person say that and call a person who says that a racist? The connection is impossible.” 

“Nick Beyak said the Conservative leadership is cowed by political correctness and its enforcers in the media.

“Unfortunately, no one in Ottawa has the courage to stand behind her,” he said.

“Larry Smith, Andrew Scheer, it’s disgraceful that there are people in that level of power with that lack of courage.

“I think that we are currently in an environment where any, quote-unquote, politically incorrect views are met with offence and insult. That is not how you improve a country when we cannot have discussions about the plight of ‘indigenous’ people.”

“While much about the ongoing controversy engulfing his mother bothers him, Nick Beyak took particular umbrage with Assembly of ‘First Nations’ National Chief Perry Bellegarde’s appearance on CBC-TV’s “This Hour has 22 Minutes” last fall to mock Sen. Beyak.

“He has time to do that while, daily, his people are starving, they are raped and living in horrible conditions and he has the time to go on TV and make fun of Sen. Beyak?” said Nick Beyak.

“If I were a member of that community, I would want new leadership and he should be ashamed of himself. And you can print that.”

Jorge Barrera, CBC Indigenous, Jan. 05, 2018


The latest furor began on Jan. 3rd, when ‘The Walrus’ published a slanderous attack on Sen. Beyak, quoting from letters the author claims she deleted from her page – letters that are still there today!

‘The Walrus’, of course, is a Liberal Party mouthpiece:

Lilian Dyck, ‘chair’ of the Senate’s Committee on Aboriginal Peoples (CBC)

“Fellow Senator Lillian Dyck, who is a member of Gordon ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 3,684 people} in Saskatchewan, told CBC on Thursday that the letters are

“frankly racist, offensive, hurtful and it was quite shocking to me that anyone would publish something like that on their website.”

{For context, that’s the racist Senator Lillian Dyck:

“Dyck, meanwhile, said the letters are more than offensive — they could be illegal.

“Maybe someone should consider laying a charge of hate speech against her because she is using her public website in a way against an identifiable group that might be considered inciting hatred,” she said.”


“One letter says ‘indigenous’ people “should be very grateful” for residential schools

“Where would they be today if it were not for the residential schools that were set up to help them? I expect they would still be living out in their isolated villages, uneducated, a very high rate of childbirth deaths, a very short life expectancy, and living in very damp, cold dwellings,” it reads.

“The {Chinese aboriginal} chairwoman of the Senate committee on ‘aboriginal people’ is asking a Conservative senator to rethink her place on the committee after she said there were positive aspects to Canada’s residential school system {An obvious truth…}…”


Conservatives Censor The Truth{April 6, 2017}:
I have been very clear that I do not in any way support Senator Beyak’s comments about residential schools. There is no way to explain her comments {If you truly believe that, you have much to learn!},” interim ‘Conservative’ Leader Rona Ambrose said. “She has been removed from the Aboriginal affairs committee in the Senate and I think that’s the right thing to do. I don’t think her comments send the right message.”


Aboriginal Liberals Say ‘NO’ To Freedom of Speech{April 10, 2017}:
“Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP and Liberal ‘Indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} Caucus chairman Don Rusnak is calling for the Conservative Party to remove Sen. Lynn Beyak…”


Sen. Beyak met with the Sioux Lookout Mayor’s Committee for Truth and Reconciliation in July. (lynnbeyak.sencanada.ca)

“I have commented favourably before in this space on Sen. Beyak’s remarks to the Senate on March 7 about native residential schools and the {Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission.
She was widely reviled for her address. Fortunately, in recent days, the tide seems to have turned and many, including many native leaders, have come to her defence.

“Including a subsequent comment, she made seven principal points. These were that fewer than a third of aboriginal children attended residential schools while they were operating;
that very few of the 150,000 who did so were wrenched from their families, many of which were nomadic and destitute;
that we should revisit the Trudeau-Chrétien white paper of 1969;
{‘Canadians had a chance in 1969’ (White Paper):
‘White Paper Excerpts’:
https://www.facebook.com/ENDRACEBASEDLAW/posts/529686737053534 }
that changing the name of the Langevin Block in Ottawa because of H.-L. Langevin’s minor role in the residential schools is nonsense;
that the financial compensation paid to many who attended those schools obliges some of them to present a grim recollection of the schools;
and that there should be a “national audit on every single dollar coming and going out of the ‘indigenous’ file,
and a referendum among all ‘indigenous’ people aged 12 and over, about what their own ambitions for the future are. (The Trudeau-Chrétien white paper recommended a one-time compensation payment to every native person and the exchange of their native status for normal citizenship.)

“All of Sen. Beyak’s proposals are reasonable, well-informed, and constructively intended. (Langevin was John A. Macdonald’s patronage-minded minister of public works and singling him out in this way is outrageous.)

“She praised aspects of the {Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission report and made clear her intimate knowledge of the subject and profound empathy with the native people. For her compassionate and perceptive insights, Sen. Beyak was thrown off the Senate Aboriginal Peoples’ Committee by her own party (‘Conservatives’), and N‘D’P MP Romeo Saganash said that Sen. Beyak’s words were

“like saying ‘Well there are some good sides to what Hitler did to the Jewish community‘.”

(As a residential school student, Saganash got a trip with his school hockey team to play in a tournament in Switzerland. Nazi death camps didn’t do that.)

“In fact, Sen. Beyak has shown why we have a Senate and why we should keep one, but appoint a larger number of conscientious and expert people in a range of public policy areas, to invest Parliament with more talent and greater integrity. We should be grateful to have such people as…Lynn Beyak in the public life of the country.”

EXCERPTS {http://lynnbeyak.sencanada.ca/p107924 } :
“We wish to commend you for your attempts to offer “balance” in the historical perspective of Residential Schools, with the “good” that many dedicated educators accomplished over the years. As retired educators ourselves, with a combined experience of 26 years in Aboriginal and Metis schools, we witnessed first-hand the positive anecdotes and experiences of those who gained from their attendance at Residential Schools. Unfortunately, current orthodoxy forces their “voices” to be silenced.

“We appreciate your efforts to shine a light on this matter, as lonely as it may be, in highlighting that the Residential Schools experience was not “dark” for all, and that many owe their subsequent success in life, and that of their children and grandchildren, to the values and skills they gained.”
“Thank you for your courageous comments regarding the biased media slant concerning the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report on Canada’s Residential School history. The media and many politicians in our country have consistently focused on the negative aspects of the residential School legacy without recognizing any of the positive aspects of the program.

“To hear the media on this topic would lead one to believe that every teacher or caregiver at any of the Residential Schools was a sadist at least and a pedophile at worst. The media and some of the government would have us believe that every child sent to one of these schools was abused physically and sexually.

“I, for one, do not believe this and resent the implication that I am somehow responsible for any of the collective abuses suffered by some of the children that were associated with these schools. With a very few exceptions, Residential Schools had been closed long before I was born. Likewise, I do not take credit for the many successes achieved by graduates of the residential school system.

“Thank you again for speaking this truth.

“…I am fully in support of your position and applaud your courage for bringing this forward.”
“Do not apologise. Above all do not resign. Your remarks about the residential school situation in this country need to be heard. As the brother of a nun who worked in the system, and the nephew of a Jesuit who worked there, too, I categorically refuse to believe that all the people who worked in these schools were as evil as they are being portrayed to be. Indeed, They were seeking, under the social rules that were generally accepted at the time to do good and to help these children.

“There are some people out there who can thank that much-maligned system for the education that they now have…despite what the politicians who have a vested interest in denigrating the system for their own political advancement have to say. We will never win the argument. but at least never let it be said that we didn’t speak up.

“Thank you!”
“Thank you for your comments on Residential Schools which I think were quite correct… I worked with Chipewyan people as an employee of the Catholic Church from 1991 to 2001 – a Pastoral Animator… I heard many positive comments by native people who had attended residential school in Fort Resolution. Two cases:

“One woman, a Chief of her community for some years, said,
I couldn’t wait to go back to residential school. You were clean and you had good food.’

“I knew another family, eight children. The Dad was a trapper who spent the winter on the barren lands. His wife contracted TB and was placed in the isolation hospital in Ft. Res. The children were taken by the Dad each year to the school to keep them safe. It was very hard for the youngest who was only 4 yrs at the time – traumatic even to be separated from parents and older sibs. However, the child survived where otherwise he may not have. The schools must be viewed in the context of the social and economic circumstances at the time.

“There is so much more to say about this issue.

“Good for you. Be strong. Blessings on you and your work.”
“Reviewed your comments on residential schools. I agree not enough discussion about positive experiences. I lived and worked in Ontario’s Far North for over 27 years in the healthcare industry.

“The effort was well-intentioned at the time. Thanks for being one of the few willing to raise this issue. Aboriginal peoples must not look to residential schools as the only reason for social dysfunction.”
“I am not a Conservative and I likely disagree with most of the Conservative Party’s policies; however, I do not agree with the backlash that you have received over the residential school remark. It is abhorrent that Romeo Saganash compared your comments to that of Hitler’s genocide of Jews.

“…You are right to mention that it was neither the residential school employees or government intention to be cruel or to wipe out an entire race. You were merely citing what the climate was at that particular time in history. Tomson Highway (Cree playwright) states himself in a 2015 interview: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2015/12/15/tomson-highway-residential-schools_n_8787638.html
that not ALL residential schools were bad, and that not all survivors were traumatized. As an ex-residential school person, he says himself that he is a prime example.

“…To imply that all people who attended residential schools are ‘survivors’ implies that all were traumatized and mistreated.

“This is simply wrong.”
“…By the standard of that time, the government expended millions of dollars and recruited the best people they could find that would agree to live in remote regions far from the civilization they knew. Far from their homes, families, churches and other social supports they knew. That some of them may have been zealots, molesters or whatever is a problem we still face even with the societal safeguards we put in place to protect members of our society.

“From the history I have read, it is likely that the aboriginals received better treatment and education than society gave, the Irish, the Scots, the Polish, the Jews and other minority or out of power groups, like the poor. The Welland Canal in St. Catharines was dug by these low-power groups and if they died on the job as many did, it was just another bloody Irishman, or what have you. They likely were envious of the pampered aboriginals that got free school, free food, free housing and that still wasn’t enough.

“I’m no anthropologist but it seems every opportunistic culture, subsistence hunter/gatherers seeks to get what they can for no effort. There is always a clash between an industrial/ organized farming culture that values effort as opposed to a culture that will sit and wail until the government gives them stuff. Until that happens it appears they will let everyone around them die. It’s brutal way to live but that’s how it looks to me. If you took a bunch of Amish farmers from Southern Ontario and banished them to a reserve in Northern Ontario, within a year they would have built all of their members a new home, a new church and barns for every homestead. Within a year, they would have dug wells and built a water treatment plant even if it was a simple sand, gravel and charcoal facility. Within 2 years, they would be exporting lumber and furniture to Southern Ontario. At the same time, the aboriginals relocated to Amish country near Kitchener would have burned down the house and left the fields to gully and rot.

“I’m not saying all of them are like that but right now the Canadian society guilt trip route to more money and power is golden and being opportunist they’re grabbing all the hotel room towels and silverware they can.

“This is 1984 tactics. Media pity, aboriginals seem to be well-schooled in getting media pity and they have become very good at getting media coverage. Well, read your history, general Canadian Society — the government of the day didn’t recruit for sadists, they recruited for the best teachers, etc., in an effort to bring aboriginals into a society they increasingly chose to set themselves apart from. Don’t resign for speaking truth.”
“Your remarks on residential schools sounded a note of objectivity and balance that is sadly missing from public discussion of this issue. You drew attention to the problems that arose in the schools but you also reminded your colleagues that many who worked there have had their reputations besmirched by a mindless and undiscriminating wave of criticism. I very much hope that you will not be persuaded to retract any of your remarks because they are a beacon of sanity in an otherwise dark area of our public discourse and this should not be dimmed.”
“I just want to say I have never written a MP or Senator in the past and have generally Leftist views. However, I was very impressed by your courage in expressing the ‘other side’ to the issue of residential schools.

“My husband has worked and lived in several aboriginal communities in the north which greatly benefited from these schools and where the people speak very highly of the care and instruction they received. We are only given one side of the story.

“Thank you for speaking up for the many who know there is another side and are afraid or powerless to express this.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank and support you for the positive comment you made about some good that was done in residential schools.

“I spent over ten years living and working on reserves and northern settlements. And I remember, as a teacher, how often we had to convince the population to keep their children at home and go to the Day School, rather than to send them to a residential school. If the residential schools had been so bad why were parents insisting that their children go? I personally saw a lot of good emanate from these schools. I do admit mistakes were made but those same mistakes also existed in the population at large. Yes, most people were well-intentioned and worked with the knowledge they thought best…”
“What is going on?! I was so sorry to see the response to your comment about some good that came out of Residential Schools. Of course, there was good and there are Indigenous people out there who would agree. Unfortunately, they are afraid of being ostracized if they speak up and, from your recent experience, one can see why.

“I brought up the subject at my Discussion Group yesterday and set off “a box of fireworks”, too! Many Canadians have embraced the one-sided Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Report because there has been very little discussion allowed on any good that came from the schools.

“I feel great concern for truth and freedom of speech when I see the sort of reaction any discussion on Residential Schools brings. What are we trying to hide? What are we afraid of?

“Like you, I believe the institution of Residential Schools was well-intentioned and was an attempt to solve the “Indian problem” by integrating the children into the new way of life in order that they could function better with language, health and skills. Unfortunately, as in any area of life, there were some who abused the situation and were overly harsh in their choices of discipline.

“Times were difficult for many families during the era of Residential Schools, life on the reservations was not necessarily good,TB and Smallpox were the diseases of the time affecting many Canadians. My neighbour, before he died, told of having to go to school without shoes as his family could not afford them. There were many other hardships at the time.

“Why are we not allowed to put Residential Schools in context of what was happening in Canada during the period1884-1948 and later?

“I appreciate your attempt to put the record straight and do hope you will not suffer too much from opposing views. Please continue to stand up for what you believe.”
“I would like to commend you for your remarks on the issue of residential schools, especially on speaking up for the many teachers and helpers/staff, religious, cleric and lay, who gave the best years of their lives, and their best efforts to help with the education of First Nations children in often very difficult circumstances.

“You are right to point out that while the mistakes, wrongs and at times even evils of the system and the whole experience have to be pointed out and dealt with openly, there should be equal effort, zeal and persistence in uncovering and celebrating the abundance of good that has happened as well. There cannot be justice without justice for all!

“I have lived and worked in Prince Albert, SK, for a number of years and had the opportunity to meet retired teachers of residential schools, and listen to their experiences as well. Those I met, were all good, hardworking and well intentioned people. I also had the opportunity to meet ‘First Nations’ people, teachers and lawyers, who are now effective leaders and advocates among and on behalf of their people, exactly because they received education in those residential schools.

“I would like to encourage you to continue to witness to the whole truth on this important and sensitive issue.”
“…My grandfather, was the headmaster of a Residential School (Anglican) for over 40 years. (He retired in 1951).

“As far as I can tell from historical studies which include correspondence, news clippings and verbal statements my grandfather was well respected by the people of southern Alberta but in particular the Native Canadians affiliated with the Blood Reserve. My grandfather did not try to reduce the importance of the native culture. He learned the Blackfoot language and culture as did his own children (my mother included). He translated several documents including parts of the bible into Blackfoot. He was also initiated into the Blackfoot Kanai Chieftainship society and was given the name Chief Mountain of which he was known for many years.

“I realize that some of the governmental policies he had to follow brought discomfort to the children who attended the school but there is no evidence of abuse or any wrongdoing by my grandfather. On the contrary he and my grandmother who also worked there loved the Blood Indians and he worked hard to enhance their culture.”
“Just want to express my support for your correct, although unpopular, comments regarding the residential schools. This appears to have become an ‘all or nothing’ subject. Former residential school students who relate anything positive about their experiences are quickly silenced to further the agenda of the aboriginal industry.

“I’m not sure why the subject must be seen in black and white, as the suffering of those who were mistreated isn’t remotely diminished by discussing all aspects of the topic openly.

“We are constantly chided to ‘learn our history’ with regards to Canada’s residential schools. I would also suggest that we ‘learn our history’ with regards to the 120,000 British Home Children sent from Great Britain between 1869-1932 for ‘indentured servitude’, of which 8,000 died (some interred in two mass, unmarked graves in Etobicoke, Ont). Terrible things were done to all people, throughout history, both through malice and good (albeit ignorant) intentions.

“Reinforcing a ‘victim’ identity is a roadblock to actual healing, and the only ones who benefit from preventing healing to occur are the ones making money at it.

“It’s unfortunate that you’ll continue to face the wrath of those who expect you to tow the line, and no doubt be called a racist, the go-to position whenever an argument doesn’t bear scrutiny…but thank you for saying what needed to be said.”
“I wish to commend you in your attempt to bring some balance to the aboriginal file on residential schools. This took courage on your part for, as you know, in these times any criticism of or dissent on aboriginal policy seems inevitably to lead to a charge of being a “racist”.

“This has seemingly already occurred in your case with the comments of NDP MP Romeo Saganash who is reported to have likened your comments to that of a “Nazi apologist”. This type of reaction is both unfortunate and historically inaccurate. By implication it seeks to equate the residential schools experience with the Holocaust. And while the residential schools system had many and serious shortcomings, which you have rightfully acknowledged, it could hardly be equated with the horrific Nazi extermination of 6 million of our fellow human beings. In short, this is political overreach at its worst.

“Two other comments attributed to you also deserve some praise. The first is your defence of Hector-Louis Langevin. In this era of political correctness we are all too often willing to condemn the actions taken by historical figures on the basis of today’s mores and not those which prevailed at the time the historical decisions were taken – a dangerous practice which you have rightfully questioned.

“The second was your praise of Pierre Trudeau’s white paper — an initiative seemingly doomed to failure by vested interests. Had it succeeded, we presumably would have less exclusionary rhetoric (“nation to nation”) and more of an inclusionary perspective (one nation) in our contemporary discussion of aboriginal issues.

“In summary, keep up the good work and maintain your resolve to answer your critics and not bow to them. To fortify you in that regard, I sugest an article written by a couple of University of Manitoba professors in 2015 –
“Debunking the half-truths and exaggerations in the Truth and Reconciliation report”.

“My recollection, as might be expected, is that the article was greeted with cries of “racism”. Finally I would recommend to you a book entitled ‘Disrobing The Aboriginal Industry – Deception Behind The Indigenous Cultural Preservation’ by Frances Widdowson and Albert Howard (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2008).”
“You have been quoted of having said that the residential schools were partly staffed by “kindly and well-intentioned men and women”. I commend and thank you for this overdue statement. It is unbearable to read the politically correct evaluation that claims the staff were monsters. If not for these devoted nuns, countless Indians would have continued to live in squalor and poverty. The intent was clearly to enable these children and adolescents to live productive lives in Canadian society. If I have any critique to offer it is that I would have said “mostly” instead of “partly”.
“…Thank you for standing up for the ones who tried their very best to help the children, as their story will never be told…”
“…Politically, I am not a Conservative supporter, but I definitely support your comments regarding Residential Schools…

“No one, to my knowledge, has ever had the courage to speak up in support of the many hard working, well-intentioned people who spent many years of their lives trying to help our indigenous population. I truly believe the churches did not found the residential schools with the intention of bringing harm to the people; their intent was to help them assimilate into the majority population of the country in the hopes that this would enable them to find jobs and be able to enjoy a better life for themselves and their families away from the often hopelessness they faced with little or no formal education.

“I applaud you for your courage and encourage you to stay strong and definitely NOT resign from the Senate.”
“Although they may not have been “politically correct” I believe all your remarks were factual. One of the largest issues we face as a society is the fact most politicians will not speak about the true facts if they are deemed to be politically incorrect, even though they are the truth.

“Life teaches us that fixing any issue is impossible if you dance around the edges, the true issue must be confronted before any successful repairs can be completed…. patches may be put on, but they never last.”
“I agree with you 100%. When viewed through the lens of the times, I believe that the decision makers did not act with malice in trying to address the poverty and absence of education in the first nation communities. Certainly, the decision to assimilate first nations into Canada was and remains to be the correct one. History is full of past injustices and I feel no personal responsibility for the plight of first nations over and above my general feeling of the obligation to help people that are less fortunate. Further, I deeply resent having to pay taxes that are in part used to subsidise first nation programs that perpetuate the problems in first nation societies.

“…Stick with it, you are speaking for a very significant portion of the Canadian population.”
“I am writing to express my support of your comments regarding well-intentioned staff at residential schools. I have read much of the Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. Sadly, unlike its title, it “honours” only some truths, but not the whole truth.

“Voices such as yours are an important and needed counterpoint to the findings of the report and I thank you for speaking out in support of this aspect of the residential school program.

“Please stand your ground.”
“…You deserve a lot of credit for sticking up for the truth. I am a life resident of the West Coast of Vancouver island.( 81 yrs.) at Tofino. Father Brabant, a missionary, came to this coast in 1875 & worked his entire life with the natives.

“In 1900, he built the first residential school at /Kakawis near Tofino. As an area historian, I have researched how the Catholic church taught these children before schools for white children existed…”
“I attended a First National Art Exhibition in Fort McMurray and I met a native artist who told me how grateful she was to the nuns and priests in her community who ran the school because for her it was a place of refuge, she said that her parents would go out on the trap-line and leave them to fend for themselves and she would go sit on the steps of the school and hope someone would help her.

“I myself am a product of a Catholic convent school and while some people who attended that school with me will now say that the nuns were racists and treated them unfairly, that was not my experience. Yes, they were strict, but the principles of kindness and consideration for others were held in high esteem and they instilled in me values that successfully took me through more than 40 years in the business world.

“For you to make an observation that is considered “politically incorrect” is very praiseworthy and commendable…”
“Every one of these Indian leaders bleating and shouting for your resignation are a product of the residential school system, and in a fashion verifies what the agencies of the day, had in mind, and were trying to accomplish, and did very successfully.

“The nation of no sinners, you and I, have been made to pay cold, hard-earned cash for a never-ending wailing and gnashing of teeth over exaggerated claims. Blackmail in it’s purest form.

“I am incensed by the head of the Anglican Church who is wilfully and obviously in complete denial, totally ignorant of the evidence and history, and/ or a self serving coward.

“Of course the CBC being the largest negative racists and National bigots have displayed to the reader their own cowardice by eliminating any comment/opinion contributions from their readers as it relates to Canadian/native issues…”
“It pains me to listen to those who would call into question your views on the Residential Schools in Canada. You are entirely correct in stating that many who went there had overwhelmingly positive experiences. At Six Nations, the ‘Mohawk Institute’ (called by many the “Mush Hole”) was administered by the Anglican Church. It was founded in 1837 on the request of the Hereditary Chiefs and Clan Mothers and when it was closed in 1970, the Chiefs pleaded with the Government to keep it open. Most of the Reserve teachers had been taught there, and anyone who cared to be objective about the matter would agree that the positives far outweighed the negatives.

“You can read the specifics of what I am saying in various blog postings I have written over the years. Most are summarized in the most recent of the series: https://deyoyonwatheh.blogspot.ca/2016/06/six-nations-residential-school.html .

“I am weary of the politically correct police among us who would say that it is “racist” to even mention any positives attached to the Residential Schools. It goes against the party line, and those who dare question the “accepted view” that the Residential Schools were a vehicle for “cultural genocide” will be severely sanctioned.

“The aim of my blog has been to show how it is only beliefs that matter at Six Nations, objective facts and evidence are of little consequence.

“Thank you for standing up for the truth…”
“My mother has a cousin who attended a residential school and whenever she is asked about it, she tells that her experience was a good one. In fact she credits the residential school system with having provided her the opportunity to have a good education. Her experience in residential school was so good that when the federal government offered a blanket cash settlement to all former attendees, she refused to take it…”
“…it should be recognized the environment the children left in many cases was even harsher than the schools to which they were transferred. By the early 20th century, the trading in furs which had sustained the indigenous people and coaxed them “off the land” had either died or moved further west. Left behind were communities where alcohol, disease (particularly TB) and overpopulation overwhelmed the meagre health and social services available. (Problems the Government is still wrestling with). In the far North, incarceration for crime in a Southern correctional facility, warm and fed, was said to be often seen by local inhabitants as a confusing reward, not a punishment.

“The Governments of the day felt the way to handle these problems was to save at least the children from these conditions by relocating them to schools where they would be safer and more secure. The Churches, seeing the opportunity the schools offered for large scale conversion to Christianity, were eager to take on the administration. There is no doubt acculturation was one intention of the program and job training for the “white” society another, but this was the mores of the time and a practice throughout all remote regions of the British Empire…”
“…we feel that the government at the time had the best of intentions for the children of the north …and in our opinion…it was better to attempt some program … than to simply leave the children of the north (native and white) to make their way on their own.

“I often wonder what problems they would have today if no one learned to read or write…no sports … Who would be naïve enough to think that, alcohol, drugs, incest would not have found its way into the lives of the North’s children? It’s far too easy to blame everything on the white man and their residential schools for the way some of the native people are still acting today. Generations removed from these schools are still blaming the schools for the way they treat their female relatives today…”
“You said what the majority of Canadians would want to say. There were some bad ‘apples’ and there was abuse, but not all the teachers were bad, not all the cooks were bad, not all the cleaners were bad, etc. The children that died, were not killed. Most would have died on the reserves, considering the conditions at the time.

“I think most of the people involved worked hard doing their jobs to make the children safe and happy.

“It is incredible that they would choose to use the word ‘SURVIVORS’. That word is connected to the concentration camps and should be left that way. No comparison….. concentration camps were set up to KILL people… no food, no clothing, no dignity.

“Residential schools set up to ‘educate’, feed, clothe… and take care of the children. Unfortunate that there were some who mistreated the people in their charge.

“Please do not apologize for me…… I was not there. Charge the people responsible and make them apologize. Dig them up if they are dead.!!!

“Stay strong and do not let the ‘Bastards’ who are not willing to stick their necks out and are going along with the scenarios that the natives have come up with…”
“Your statement about residential schools has needed to be said for a very long time. I applaud your forthrightness, honesty and courage. You have public attention, and now you are getting to the heart of it…

“When the youth can no longer find a reason for effort in the cultural vacuum of the reservations — and then lead a life of dissipation — racial snobbishness and prejudice should not prevent them from participating in our culture. And education is the key, as it always has been, e.g. the residential schools…”
“I believe in equality for all Canadians. I cannot read the minds of those who lived many years ago and came up with the idea of residential schools, but logic would tell me that they saw the poverty and conditions of the reserves and thought the best way to help those people to better their lives was through education. It is easy to look back and say some mistakes were made, but many benefited from that education. Neither do I see the logic in asking today’s leaders to apologize for decisions make by leaders many years ago.

“And, I absolutely agree that reservation leaders should be held accountable for the tax payers money that goes into these reserves. It is obvious from the stories we hear of what chiefs and counsellors pay themselves that the money is not distributed fairly.”
“…Aboriginal issues are very complicated and will defy any kind of real solution as long as debate regarding the issues is stifled by the media and aboriginal advocates. You have suffered a great deal of abuse in the media. I applaud your courage in trying to give a least a small correction to the totally one-sided perspective regarding residential schools.”
“…I strongly support your contribution on this committee, and your honest enquiry of the issues affecting native communities. We need more people like you to provide balance and perspective… I think that residential schools were an noble and honest attempt to treat natives, as equals and integrate the community into the new productive, rewarding Canadian life. Had that not been attempted, there would have emerged a cry of neglect, abuse and discrimination. Sadly now, those efforts are being portrayed as cultural genocide and child abuse. The easiest way to destroy a people is to put them into, and keep them in, a state of dependence…”
“I know of two direct friends and another indirect acquaintance who were students in Indian residential schools. They tell me, off the record, that the Indian residential schools made them what they are today. They do describe a harsh environment but one which also brought them literacy, a love of learning, and true affection for many of their teachers. Their experience may not have been universal, but it is ridiculous to suggest that the Indian residential school system was unmitigated evil.

I wish you the best as you withstand the current barrage of unwarranted criticism. You have been made an unfortunate target and have been unjustly vilified for speaking what is plainly obvious. Please know that I and countless other Canadian sympathize with your situation and offer you our support.”
“Given the entrenched special interests on all sides on these issues, Senator Beyak’s views may well be unwelcome. But they are certainly not “racist”. Racists seek to divide and build walls between people. Beyak, rather, envisions Canada as more all-embracing, bringing our peoples closer together, sharing fully in all that our country has to offer.”

‘Poisoning Children’s Minds’

“A few years ago, my preschool daughter decided to dress up as a Native princess for Halloween. As far as I know, my family has no Native ancestry. But she wanted to dress up in a “beautiful” costume, and a Native princess was the most beautiful thing she could imagine. 

“Her teacher sent her home with instructions to change her costume because it was “offensive”.

“This left her baffled.

“I think it’s beautiful,” she said.

“I think it’s beautiful, too.” I told her, trying to explain the teacher’s thought process in terms a four-year-old might understand. “But some people might think it’s offensive because you’re not really a Native princess.”

“But why can’t I dress up as one?” she asked.

“I didn’t have a good answer because, frankly, I disagreed with the teacher.

The message my daughter got was that she could not pretend — could not even imagine herself — to be a Native person. She got the message that a barrier existed between herself and the “Native princess’ she wanted to be — the barrier of race. And nothing could surmount that barrier. Not even a child’s imagination.

“This is a horrible message to send to our children.

“Now, a French school board in Ontario, ‘Conseil scolaire Viamonde’, is proposing that children should not wear Halloween costumes that portray cultures outside of

“their own”.

“Essentially, the board is sending kids the message that a Jamaican boy can’t imagine himself a ‘ninja’. A Latino girl can’t dress up as a ‘coureur des bois’. And an Ojibwa child can’t pretend to be a gondolier.

“The board is saying it is better to stifle imagination than to believe that we share enough common humanity that we might be able, just for a day, to imagine ourselves as someone else.

“It might be tempting to shake this off as a tempest in a teapot. But it’s just the latest manifestation of a movement that is gaining a dangerous grip over Canadian intellectual, educational and artistic circles.

This movement holds that any person who seeks to portray a person of another race or culture is committing the unforgivable offence of “cultural appropriation”.

This movement attempts to force us to define ourselves by our racial heritage. It’s a highly dangerous movement, especially in a multicultural society like Canada. 

“In a multicultural society, it’s absolutely necessary that we find the common humanity in all people, not only in theory, but in our daily lives. We have to approach each person as an individual, not as a member of a “race,” “ethnicity,” or “culture” that is often different from our own.

“When the United Nations proclaimed the ‘International Day of Yoga’ in 2016, renowned spiritual leader Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev said that yoga is

“India’s gift to the world”.

“That’s a beautiful thought: to view the best aspects of our many human cultures as gifts to the world. Not as possessions of an exclusive bloodline.

“Let’s fight back against the ‘intellectual’ {‘racist’} movement that seeks to confine each of us into a tiny ethnic box.

Let’s fight for our right to define ourselves as human beings, rather than representatives of a particular race.

Let’s fight for the right of our children to imagine themselves in someone else’s shoes.”

‘Tearing Down Canada’s History’

“A call for the removal of the Edward Cornwallis statue in Halifax has reached an all-time high {Evidence?}, with a protest planned for Saturday.

“The ‘Facebook’ event “Removing Cornwallis” is calling for the {ILLEGAL} removal of the former governor’s statue in Cornwallis Park, with a gathering there scheduled for Saturday, July 15 from noon to 3 p.m.

“Come join us to ‘peacefully’ {‘illegally’} remove Cornwallis statue, a statue that for too long has been representing {phony} ‘genocide’ in ‘Mikmaki’ {There’s no such place},” reads the ‘About’ section of the event.

“We are calling on our ‘warriors’, ‘protectors’, ‘allies’, friends and lovers to join us in this ‘historic’ {‘illegal’} event.”

“According to the discussion on the Facebook page, the event is being hosted by the Mi’kmaq ‘First Nation’.

“As of Monday afternoon, about 220 people said they would attend, and roughly 780 people showed interest {As of Thursday, this was 380 going, 1,300 interested}.

“Suzanne Patles {aboriginal race activist}, who created the event, also wrote an open letter to ‘Halifax Regional Municipality’ Mayor Mike Savage on Monday.

{Suzanne Patles is an aboriginal race activist and member of the self-styled ‘Mi’kmaq Warriors Society’. She was involved in criminal activity at the Elsipogtog, New Brunswick anti-fracking riots, and was arrested {See link below}. She is a Canadian traitor who preaches race politics…}

“She wrote that it is of the

“utmost importance that this ‘colonial genocidal’ statue be removed if true {one-way} ‘reconciliation’ is to be achieved.”

“In April, Halifax Regional Council debated reconsidering the use of Cornwallis’ name on public infrastructure. Councillors voted 15-1 for a staff report to create an expert panel to weigh in on commemorations of Cornwallis.

“Patles says that if Halifax is to commemorate the founding of Halifax, the truth about ‘First Nations’ treaties must also be recognized {That’s for sure!}.

“It is time for you to step up to the plate and restore peace. Remove Cornwallis immediately,” she writes. {NO – it’s time for YOU to stop threatening illegality and violence!}

“This is not a time to develop committees regarding this issue.”

‘Demonizing The Past: Cornwallis’

Race activists in Halifax are threatening to take down the statue of the city’s founder, Edward Cornwallis. The ‘activists’ in Halifax on Canada Day were also protesting Cornwallis, claiming he was guilty of instituting the ‘genocide’ of local aboriginal tribes, the proof being his ‘bounty on Mi’kmaq scalps’ {which was simply a response to aboriginal scalping of the British – see below}. 

While Edward Cornwallis was far from a saint — see his brutal repression of the Jacobite uprising of 1745 — in Canada, Cornwallis was simply one participant in a much larger series of wars that included scalping on ALL sides: 

“The British Government appointed Cornwallis as Governor of Nova Scotia {1749} with the task of establishing a new British settlement to counter France’s Fortress Louisbourg…

“One of Cornwallis’ first priorities was to make peace with the ‘Wabanaki Confederacy’, which included the Mi’kmaq. (The Confederacy had been aligned with New France through four wars, starting with ‘King William’s War’.) A group of Maliseet, Passamaquoddy and single band of Mi’kmaq met with Cornwallis in the Summer of 1749. They agreed with the British to end fighting, and renewed an earlier treaty drafted in Boston, redrafted as the ‘Treaty of 1749’.

“However, Cornwallis’s diplomatic efforts were doomed to failure. The treaties signed at Halifax represented mostly native groups in New Brunswick. Most Mi’kmaq leaders in Nova Scotia regarded the unilateral establishment of Halifax as a violation of an earlier treaty with the Mi’kmaq people (1726), signed after ‘Father Rale’s War’… Cornwallis had no authority to respond by abandoning the Halifax expedition, and Mi’kmaq leaders regarded the Halifax settlement as

“a great theft that you have perpetrated against me.”

“A wave of Mi’kmaq attacks began immediately… At Chignecto Bay, two British ships were attacked while two others were seized at Canso. At Halifax, attacks began on settlers and soldiers outside the fortified township, beginning with the first of several raids on the longhouse settlement at Dartmouth across the harbour. This stage of the long-running Anglo-Mi’kmaq conflict is known by some historians as ‘Father Le Loutre’s War’. 

“When Cornwallis arrived in Halifax, there was a long history of frontier warfare in Acadia and Nova Scotia between the British and the Wabanaki Confederacy (which included the Mi’kmaq). The Mi’kmaq sought to protect their land by killing British civilians along the New England/Acadia border in Maine (See the Northeast Coast Campaigns 1688, 1703, 1723, 1724, 1745, 1746, 1747)…

{You can already see that the story of aboriginals peacefully sharing the land with Europeans is mostly mythology…}

“Cornwallis sought to project British military power by establishing forts in the largest Acadian communities, at Windsor (‘Fort Edward’), Grand Pré (‘Fort Vieux Logis’), and Chignecto (‘Fort Lawrence’). The fighting started when Acadians and Mi’kmaqs responded by attacking the British at Chignecto, Grand Pré, Dartmouth, Canso, and Halifax…

British governors had often issued proclamations against the Mi’kmaq for their raids. After the Raid on Dartmouth, Cornwallis issued a proclamation to separate the two populations by banning the Mi’kmaq from peninsular Nova Scotia.

“In New England, the British paid their ‘Rangers’ a bounty for Mi’kmaq scalps, and the French paid the Wabanaki for British scalps. Cornwallis followed New England’s example in his proclamation, which offered a bounty for the scalps of Mi’kmaw fighters. The bounty was not effective. Cornwallis increased the bounty dramatically in March 1751, but this increase brought in only one scalp {‘Genocide’?} in the next four months…

“According to historian Geoffery Plank, both combatants understood their conflict as a “race war“, and both the Mi’kmaq and British were “single-mindedly” determined to drive each other from the peninsula of Nova Scotia
{Plank, Geoffrey (1996). “The two Majors Cope: the boundaries of nationality in mid-18th century Nova Scotia”. ‘Acadiensis’. XXV (2): 18–40.}

“But after eighteen months of inconclusive fighting since the outbreak of the war, uncertainties and second thoughts began to disturb both the Mi’kmaq and the British communities. By the summer of 1751, Governor Cornwallis began a more conciliatory policy. For more than a year, Cornwallis sought out Mi’kmaq leaders willing to negotiate a peace.

“On 16 February 1752, hoping to lay the groundwork for a peace treaty, he repealed his 1749 proclamation against the Wabanaki. Having only committed to being Governor for two years, Cornwallis eventually resigned his commission and left the colony in October, 1752.

Cornwallis laid the groundwork for the peace treaty signed shortly after he left. Chief Jean-Baptiste Cope signed the only peace treaty of the war, which was ultimately rejected by most of the other Mi’kmaq leaders. Cope burned the treaty six months after he signed it…”

“There’s a debate currently raging in Halifax about the city’s founder, British Governor Edward Cornwallis, who founded the city in 1749. The agitation is centred on a statue of the Governor in Halifax’s downtown Cornwallis Square:

“Last May, an unknown vandal spray-painted “Self righteous ass” on a statue of Halifax founder Edward Cornwallis, the 18th century British military governor who once placed 10 guinea bounties on Mi’kmaq scalps. In 2001, someone else doused the statue in red paint and scrawled “killed natives” on its base.

At the city’s 250th birthday party, an actor dressed as Cornwallis was forbidden from speaking {???} and in 2011, a Nova Scotia school was renamed to scrub out Cornwallis’ violent legacy. And now, some Haligonians are wondering whether they even need a statue of Cornwallis at all. 

Rev. Richard Walsh of Upper Tantallon, dressed as 18th century Royal Artillery bombardier, looks over painting of Edward Cornwallis, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, 2006. (PETER PARSONS—ChronicleHerald)

“The debate is largely about a contentious proclamation Cornwallis issued in an attempt to deal with a violent uprising by Mi’kmaq natives who were targeting the British settlements in Acadia. It reads:

“His Majesty’s Council do hereby authorize and command all Officers Civil and Military, and all his Majesty’s Subjects of others to annoy, distress, take or destroy the Savage commonly called the Micmac, wherever they are found,” … “[And] promise a reward of ten Guineas for ever Indian Micmac taken or killed, to be paid upon producing such Savage taken or his scalp.”

“We have a tendency to look at historical issues like the Cornwallis administration through the lens of modern grievances. The ‘Scalping Proclamation’ is indeed horrific by modern standards, but it must be taken in context. The Mi’kmaq weren’t exactly Boy Scouts — there had been a series of brutal Mi’kmaq attacks on British settlers in Acadia leading up to the proclamation, and indeed the Mi’kmaq themselves were being paid by the French to collect British scalps. In a 1749 raid on Dartmouth, across the harbour from Halifax a month before Cornwallis’ proclamation, Mi’kmaq warriors attacked a British party cutting firewood:

“On September 30, 1749, about forty Mi’kmaq attacked six men who were in Dartmouth cutting trees. The Mi’kmaq killed four of them on the spot, took one prisoner and one escaped. Two of the men were scalped and the heads of the others were cut off. The attack was on the saw mill at Dartmouth Cove, which was under the command of Major Ezekiel Gilman. A detachment of rangers was sent after the raiding party and cut off the heads of two Mi’kmaq and scalped one.”

To prevent the French and Wabanaki Confederacy massacres of British families, on October 2, 1749, Governor Edward Cornwallis offered a bounty on the head of every Mi’kmaq. Prior to Cornwallis, there was a long history of Massachusetts Governors issuing bounties for the scalps of Indian men, women, and children. Cornwallis followed New England’s example. He set the amount at the same rate that the Mi’kmaq received from the French for British scalps. The British military paid the ‘Rangers’ the same rate per scalp as the French military paid the Mi’kmaq for British scalps.

“Despite Cornwallis’ efforts to defend the community, in July 1750, the Mi’kmaq killed and scalped 7 men who were at work in Dartmouth. In August 1750, 353 people arrived on the ship ‘Alderney’ and began the town of Dartmouth. The town was laid out in the autumn of that year. The following month, on September 30, 1750, Dartmouth was attacked again by the Mi’kmaq and five more residents were killed. In October 1750, a group of about eight men went out

“to take their diversion; and as they were fowling, they were attacked by the Indians, who took the whole prisoners; scalped … [one] with a large knife, which they wear for that purpose, and threw him into the sea …”

“In March 1751, the Mi’kmaq attacked on two more occasions, bringing the total number of raids to six in the previous two years. Three months later, on May 13, 1751, Broussard led sixty Mi’kmaq and Acadians to attack Dartmouth again, in what would be known as the ‘Dartmouth Massacre’.

“Certainly, Edward Cornwallis’ legacy in Canada is not without controversy, but that doesn’t mean his significance as the founder of one of Canada’s oldest cities should be expunged from our collective memory. Halifax as it is today would not exist were it not for Governor Cornwallis. Canada in the 18th century was a brutal, violent place, and for those who make a fetish of our “proud peacekeeping tradition“, the colonial wars are an embarrassment. That doesn’t mean we should pretend they didn’t occur and flush all references to them down the memory hole.

“Edward Cornwallis is an important figure in Canadian history, and he deserves a statue in the city he founded…”

“It is clear that, contrary to historical revisionists, Europeans did not teach scalping to the Native Americans; in fact, the opposite is true.

“…The Halifax regional school board’s decision to rename Cornwallis Junior High School was one of several events in 2011 that reopened the blame/guilt game surrounding Cornwallis and the contentious Mi’kmaq bounty proclamation of 1749.

“Cornwallis, governor of Nova Scotia/Acadia, 1749-1752, has become a lightning rod for long-standing grievances of the Mi’kmaq community…

“For {race activist} Daniel Paul, author of “We Were Not the Savages”, and other Mi’kmaq leaders, Cornwallis should be swept into history’s dustbin, insisting that

“anything with the Cornwallis name has to go.”

“But before we start removing Cornwallis’s name from other public entities, including the Cornwallis River, or boarding over his statue in Halifax, what would be helpful is an agreed-upon body of knowledge and a dispassionate assessment of his time as governor and the geopolitical turmoil of mid-18th century Nova Scotia.

“What is often missing in public comments and media reports are balance and context, including the challenges Cornwallis faced in founding Halifax, dealing with the Acadians and the opposing French-Mi’kmaq alliance and why he issued the bounty proclamation. 

“Saint Mary’s University professor John Reid (“Essays on Northeastern North America in Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries”) points out that a historiographical rebalancing has taken place in recent years as historians place increased significance on the role of Nova Scotia in the interconnected imperial, colonial and aboriginal events and hostilities in northeastern North America in the 1600s and 1700s.

“Hostilities involving imperial rivals Britain and France and ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler communities’} in Nova Scotia and other frontier areas — particularly after British forces captured Port Royal in 1710 — were frequent and included scalping and mistreatment of prisoners on all sides.

“There was no ‘United Nations Declaration of Human Rights’, no ‘Geneva Convention’ governing captured and wounded combatants. As New Brunswick historian Stephen Patterson observes in the book “The Atlantic Region to Confederation, A History”,

“The historical lesson, if there are any such to be drawn (of the period), is that it is difficult to separate victims from villains.”

Edward Cornwallis, soldier, politician and founder of Halifax (courtesy ‘Library and Archives Canada—C-11070’)

“Cornwallis’s mission — during a period of international tension — was to strengthen the British position in Nova Scotia by establishing a fortified town at Chebucto Bay to counter Fortress Louisbourg and other settlements on the mainland. The French controlled Cape Breton.

“He succeeded in establishing Halifax but had little success with settlements outside Halifax, due to Mi’kmaq and French opposition. Although Britain claimed jurisdiction and dominion over Nova Scotia (‘Treaty of Utrecht’ 1713, treaty of 1725/1726), the Mi’kmaq resisted any British encroachment.

Several months after Cornwallis’s arrival with 2,500 settlers in June 1749, the Mi’kmaq declared war on the British and attacked and scalped a small group of woodcutters near Dartmouth Cove. Cornwallis — following the legalistic practice of British administrators — issued the bounty proclamation, “as is the custom in America“, a hasty but probably not illegal action of the period.

“He would rescind the proclamation in 1752 in hopes of making peace with the Mi’kmaq (‘Treaty of 1752’) before returning to England. There are few records regarding the number of Mi’kmaq, including non-combatants, taken or killed by British forces under Cornwallis’s command (1749-1752). 

Edward Cornwallis

“But neither the bounty nor the offensive operations of ‘Gorham’s Rangers’ deterred the Mi’kmaq and they pretty much kept the British contained in Halifax during Cornwallis’s governance. The settlement at Dartmouth is a case in point.

“Between 1749 and 1759, the Mi’kmaq (in some instances aided by Acadian insurgents) carried out eight raids on Dartmouth, resulting in a significant number of deaths.

“The most devastating occurred in the pre-dawn of May 13, 1751, when more than a dozen settlers and soldiers were killed and scalped, or seriously wounded.

“Accounts of the time state that

“they spared not even women and children . . . (and among the wounded) . . . the casualties mounted each day for about a month.”

“The dead were brought to Halifax and Rev. William Tutty of St. Paul’s Church recorded the names and conducted the burials in the Old Burying Ground. Several Mi’kmaq were also reported killed.

“The raids had a lasting effect on the settlers. From the 353 settlers who arrived on the transport Alderney in 1750, only half remained in 1752. Tutty, in a letter to church officials in London in July 1751, refers to the

“many outrages and most unnatural barbarities (of the Mi’kmaq) at Dartmouth, (which) have so intimidated the inhabitants that they have mostly deserted it.”

“Dartmouth historian Harry Chapman (In the “Wake of the Alderney”) notes that

“the census of 1766 records the population at 39. . . . Dartmouth was virtually a ghost town and would remain so for (some time).”

“The taking of scalps on all sides, including non-combatants, continued after Cornwallis’s departure from Nova Scotia in 1752, heightened by the official start of the ‘Seven Years War’ (1755), the expulsion of the Acadians from the province, and the attacks of Acadian insurgents.

“At the beginning of the ‘Seven Years War’, it was reported British warships had captured two French warships off Nova Scotia carrying 10,000 scalping knives intended for the Mi’kmaq and Acadian insurgents.

“Looking back to 1749, should we view Cornwallis’s bounty proclamation as ‘genocide’, as claimed by some Mi’kmaq leaders, or as a military measure to protect settlers, and in Cornwallis’s words to

“harass and hunt the Mi’kmaq . . . until they had either to abandon the Peninsula (mainland) or come in upon any (treaty) terms we please?”

“American historian John Grenier (“The Far Reaches of Empire, War in Nova Scotia 1710-1760”) says it is important to look at context in assessing Cornwallis’s proclamation, and that British actions

cannot be viewed entirely by today’s standards and values, . . . there’s too much present-day emotional weight.” …”

–‘Cornwallis era part of brutal struggle’,
LEN CANFIELD, Halifax Chronicle Herald, March 25, 2012


From May, 2017:
“A new survey suggests that the majority of Haligonians believe Edward Cornwallis’s name should remain on public parks, buildings and street signs.

“The survey results, released Tuesday by ‘Corporate Research Associates’, showed 58% of respondents “mostly” or “completely” disagreed that Cornwallis’s name should be removed, while 31% “mostly” or “completely” agreed that it should be removed.

“Edward Cornwallis founded Halifax in 1749…

“Over the past few years, Nova Scotians have discussed whether it is appropriate to keep Cornwallis’s name on buildings, streets and schools.

“In 2011, the ‘Halifax Regional School Board’ voted unanimously to rename ‘Cornwallis Junior High’, changing it to ‘Halifax Central Junior High School’. In 2015, Premier Stephen McNeil had signs for the Cornwallis River in the Annapolis Valley removed.

“And in March, the ‘Cornwallis Street Baptist Church’ decided to change its name, but has not yet settled on a new one. Also that month, the ‘Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre’ asked the city of Halifax to rename Cornwallis Street.

“In April, Halifax Regional Council voted to create a panel to advise the municipality on public spaces and monuments named after Cornwallis. A similar motion had been defeated in 2016.

“Don Mills, the chairman and CEO of ‘Corporate Research Associates’, said his firm’s survey results may surprise some people given the media coverage of the issue.

“Quite often, the silent majority is not represented in these kinds of debate,” he said. “In fact, it’s almost two to one against removing his name.”

‘Stand Up for Canada!’

From Halifax, on ‘Canada Day’:
A member of the ‘Proud Boys’ — proud of Canada – is told by an anti-Canadian protester that he can’t display the Red Ensign. He then asks why, since there is a Mi’kmaq flag being flown {talk about ‘Cultural Appropriation’!} and an upside-down Canadian flag, and is told that the Red Ensign is “a flag of ‘Genocide’” — a clearly aggressive and provocative insult on Canada Day. Here’s a partial transcript of the encounter — from the video in the linked article — followed by the ridiculous and embarrassing response by some Canadian military officials – people more concerned with Political Correctness than defending Canada…: 

Proud Boy with flag: “So why is she allowed the Mi’kmaq flag but I’m not allowed my flag?”

Anti-Canadian: “You’re not allowed… {?} This is a flag of genocide.” 

Proud Boy #2: “This is a country of genocide?”

Anti-Canadian: “Yes, it is.”

Proud Boy #2: “We’re living in a country of genocide?”

Anti-Canadian: “I’m glad you’re now aware of that.”

Proud Boy with flag: “All of that was done with the Union Jack…”

Anti-Canadian: “This is Mi’kmaq territory. This is not Canada.”

Proud Boy with flag: “This is Canada. It might’ve been Mi’kmaq territory.”

Proud Boy #2: “So you don’t have I.D.? You don’t pay your taxes? You don’t have a Medicare card?”

Anti-Canadian: “This is not an argument.”

Proud Boy #2: “Well, it is…”

The anti-Canadian then repeats the prompting from a woman in the background: “You need to have respect… So, please…”

Proud Boy #2: “I feel like we’re being respectful but you’re telling us our country doesn’t exist. We’re celebrating our country today.”

Male voice in background: “It’d be great if you left.”

Anti-Canadian: “You have two choices. You can stay {This is a PUBLIC space! On Canada Day!} but you can’t have your colonial genocide flag, or you can leave.”
{VIDEO edit at this point…}

Proud Boy with flag, speaking to male protester: “…and the founding of everything you see, and the house that you live in. Why don’t you give all that you own, back? Give your sweater, give your pants, give your shoes – give it all back.”

Male protester: “So, between very little and nothing?”

Proud Boy with flag, speaking to male protester: “Yeah, but it’s still not yours, if this is still Mi’kmaq land that everybody here should be handing over to them.”

Woman in background: “Yeah? Then show some pride and get the fuck out of here…”

A second phone video clip includes the following exchange:

Male protester: “You’ve been respectfully {?} asked to leave.”

Proud Boy #3: “…while you’re flipping my {Canadian} flag upside down…”

Female protester: “Is it yours? {Sarcastically} I just heard you say ‘mine’! Is it yours, pretty boy? I’m sorry if it bothers you…”

Proud Boy with flag: “You’ve defaced the flag of Canada.”

Female protester: “It says ‘Decolonize’. I’m sorry you weren’t taught to read… I don’t like you.”

Proud Boy #3: “Why? You don’t even know me.”

Female protester: “I don’t need to know you. I don’t like you… Go away… Go away… Supremacist…”

Proud Boy #3: “I’m actually Metis.”

Female protester: “No, you’re not.”

Proud Boy #3: “Yes, I am.”

Female protester: “Don’t pull that bullshit….”

Proud Boy #3: “100% true.”

Female protester: “Oh, yeah?”

Proud Boy #3: “Cree and French.”

Female protester: “Oh, yeah? Yeah? … Then show some pride and get the fuck out of here. Go…”

Proud Boy #4: “I have ancestors that died in WW1; then, WW11, and the Korean War that died for this country that you’re defacing here. So, you’re disrespecting MY ancestors.”

Female protester: “If you were here for the beginning of this, you would have heard arguments against all of that. It’s time for you to go, you’re interrupting…”

SUMMARY: The ‘Proud Boys’ couldn’t have been more polite and respectful, particularly in the face of racist, anti-Canadian provocation. Yet, the soldiers are now going to be persecuted. From the always anti-Canadian ‘CBC’…:

“The members of the Canadian Armed Forces who ‘disrupted’ a protest organized by ‘indigenous’ {‘descendants of Siberian settlers’} activists in Halifax on Canada Day will be removed from training and duties as the military investigates and reviews the circumstances, says the country’s top general.

“On Saturday, a gathering of ‘indigenous’ people and activists held a protest at the Edward Cornwallis statue in downtown Halifax. The protest was ‘disrupted’ by five off-duty military members wearing black polo shirts who referred to themselves as ‘Proud Boys’.
{NO mention of the fact that it was an ANTI-Canada protest by aboriginal racists and Leftist anti-Canadians…} 

Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Jonathan Vance (Adrian Wyld — Canadian Press)

“We are the nation’s protectors, and any member of the Canadian Armed Forces who is not prepared to be the defender we need them to be will face severe consequences, including release from the forces,”

Gen. Jonathan Vance, chief of defence staff, said in a statement Tuesday night.

{They WERE defending Canada, you twit!}

“What happened in Halifax over the weekend is deplorable, and Canadians should rest assured my senior leadership is seized of the matter,” said Vance. “The members involved will be removed from training and duties while we conduct an investigation and review the circumstances. Their future in the military is certainly in doubt.”

Vance apologized to Canada’s ‘indigenous’ people for the

“behaviour of a few.”

“Canada’s defence minister condemned the actions of the Armed Forces members who disrupted the protest and said there will be consequences for military personnel who

“express intolerance {?} while in — or out — of uniform.”

{It was the Aboriginal racists and Leftists who were expressing intolerance!} 

“I want to give you my personal assurance that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated within the ranks of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence,” Harjit Sajjan wrote in a ‘Facebook’ post Tuesday evening.

“Sajjan said an investigation by the ‘Canadian Forces National Investigation Service’ is underway into the actions of the men who call themselves ‘Proud Boys’

Chief Grizzly Mamma shaved her head as a symbol of mourning during the Edward Cornwallis protest on Canada Day in Halifax. (Anjuli Patil — CBC)

“As one of the {aboriginal race} activists, Chief Grizzly Mamma {who is from B.C.}, was shaving her head in protest, the gathering was ‘interrupted’ by five off-duty military members wearing black polo shirts with yellow trim, one of whom carried a Red Ensign flag.

“The two groups exchanged words. The man who was carrying the flag said,

“You’re disrespecting General Cornwallis.”

“A ‘Facebook’ message that appears to be from Dave Eldridge, one of the men who approached the activists and ‘indigenous’ protesters, told ‘CBC News’ he is part of group called the ‘Proud Boys’, a

“multi-racial fraternal organization.” 

“The ‘Facebook’ page of the ‘Proud Boys Canadian Chapters’ says they are

“a fraternal organization of Western Chauvinists who will no longer apologize for creating the modern world,”

and do not discriminate on the basis of race or sexuality.

“Eldridge said in his ‘Facebook’ message that the group had thought the event was an anti-Canada protest and left after learning that wasn’t the case {? The video clearly indicates the anti-Canadian core of their phony ‘ceremony’…}.

“The entire exchange between the two groups lasted about 10 minutes.

“Organizers of the protest said they held the July 1 event there because they felt the statue is a symbol of the systematic persecution of ‘indigenous’ people, past and present.
{See – it WAS an anti-Canada protest, one of a series held across the country…}

Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan (Adrian Wyld — CP)

“Sajjan {pathetically and unnecessarily} apologized to the Halifax Mi’kmaq community and Chief Grizzly Mamma in his ‘Facebook’ post.

“I know my words cannot undo the ‘disrespect’ that was shown to you and your community {What about THEIR diserspect to Canada? You work for CANADA, fool…}. I know our government has much more work to do with respect to reconciliation with {so-called} ‘Indigenous’ Peoples.”

{And how about one more ridiculous apology}:

“Earlier Tuesday, the commanding officer of the Royal Canadian Navy on the East Coast apologized for the actions of the members of the Canadian Forces who were involved in the confrontation. 

Rear Admiral John Newton (Photo: CBC)

“Rear Admiral John Newton said that members represent their institution even when they’re off duty and out of uniform in their personal lives.

“I’ll stand here in front of you and apologize to the Aboriginal community, to the whole public community that feels offended by the actions of fellow Canadians who wear the uniform,” he told a group of reporters.

{We’re offended by YOU!}

{See also: ‘Mea Maxima Culpa: The Ruse of Political Apologies’ {February 5, 2016}:

“Newton said he followed social media response to the incident {Aboriginal race activists are all over ‘Twitter’ and ‘Facebook’, the hypocrites…} and sat down with the group to explain that their actions didn’t represent the military…

“The perception I took is exactly what the people at the Cornwallis monument took {Anti-Canadian… YOU should be investigated.}. It didn’t allow them to have the space to have their own views and to express them. It tried to counter them.

“It’s just the wrong place for our soldiers, sailors and our men and women to be, and they certainly shouldn’t be congregating even outside of that, representing those kinds of {pro-Canadian} views.”

{In other words, soldiers can NEVER express their objections to traitors who would bring down Canada. Political correctness is costing these people their sanity!}

“Rebecca Moore, a Mi’kmaq {anti-Canada} activist who was at the Cornwallis protest on Canada Day, said she was happy to hear the rear admiral apologize on behalf of the offending Forces members {I’ll bet!}

“Newton said the ‘indigenous’ community would be consulted about the ‘Proud Boys’ incident. He said he has good communications with local ‘indigenous’ leaders and would speak to advisers in the community to get guidance {??? You get your ‘guidance’ from your superior officers, not from outsiders with an axe to grind. What in the hell is wrong with you?}.

“Cornwallis, a governor of Nova Scotia, was a military officer credited by the British for founding Halifax in 1749. Later that year, he issued a bounty on the scalps of Mi’kmaq people. There’s been considerable {aboriginal} debate over the use of Cornwallis’s name on public parks, buildings and street signs.”

“Save The Five’ PETITION:


“‘Indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} activists in Halifax were confronted on Canada Day by a ‘group of men’ {‘Canadian activists’} who claimed to be members of a “Western chauvinist” organization called the ‘Proud Boys’.

“Chief Grizzly Mamma led a ‘ceremony’ {shaving her head} on Saturday near the statue of Edward Cornwallis, Halifax’s founder, who established the ‘policy of genocide’ against the Mi’kmaq people.
{That’s another outright lie from the ‘CBC’. See our next post: ‘Demonizing The Past — Cornwallis’.}

“She was briefly interrupted by five men decked in black polo shirts and carrying a Red Ensign flag, Canada’s predecessor to the Maple Leaf.

“The men — who have since been identified as members of the Canadian Armed Forces — said Grizzly Mama was “disrespecting” Cornwallis. 

“The ‘Facebook’ page of the ‘Proud Boys Canadian Chapters’ says it is

“a fraternal organization of Western Chauvinists who will no longer apologize for creating the modern world.”

“And according to Will Sommer, a {Left-wing} Washington-based political reporter for the ‘Hill’, the group was actually started last year by Gavin McInnes, the Canadian co-founder of the media outlet ‘Vice’ turned…commentator. In the past, McInnes has admitted he is

“becoming anti-Semitic”.

{Another deliberate CBC distortion. McInnes is also funny and that comment was a sarcastic aside when he was complaining about Israelis overdoing their self-promotion while he was visiting Israel…}

“Sommer says they generally tout “traditionalist” views.

“Their mottos include:

“West is best,” “Glorify the entrepreneur,” “Venerate the housewife” and “I won’t apologize for creating the modern world.” …

“Down here in the U.S., they’re…very big fans of [U.S. President] Donald Trump, for example,” Sommer said.

{The hysterical CBC — with no regard for McInnes’ legendary humour — then accepts this at face value}:

“According to Sommer, who has sifted through ‘Proud Boys’ social media pages, there are four steps, or “degrees”, to becoming a Proud Boy.

–Declare yourself a ‘Proud Boy’.
–Take a beating from other ‘Proud Boys’ while naming five breakfast cereals.

“This seems bizarre, but the theory behind it sort of prepares you to think on your feet and think when your adrenalin is pumping,” Sommer said.

–Get a ‘Proud Boys’ tattoo.
–Get into a physical fight with a Left-wing protester.

“They also take something of a vow of self-celibacy.

“You have to subscribe to McInnis’s philosophy of #NoWanks, which means you can only masturbate once a month,” Sommer said.

“He believes that too-frequent masturbation or pornography has sort of sapped the will of the modern man.”

“Sommer says the ‘Proud Boys’ are part of a movement called “the alt-light” — a less extreme version of the so-called “alt-right”, whose self-billed leader Richard Spencer espouses blatant white supremacism and anti-Semitism.

“They are, in fact, the foes of those people. They are what is called civic nationalists. There is growingly, at least in the United States, a divide between these two groups,” Sommer said.

“That said, the ‘Proud Boys’ Canadian ‘Facebook’ page contains posts that are critical of Islam, mock people who use “they/them” pronouns, and boast about white men’s contributions to technological advancements.
{Sounds fine!}

“Sommer said women are not allowed in the group, although there is a sister organization. The ‘Proud Boys’ do, however, accept gay and non-white members…”

“On ‘Canada Day’, five servicemen heard there was an anti-Canada rally going on in a local park in Halifax.

“They went to check it out and were immediately swarmed by Left-wingers who told them they may not enter the park carrying the Canadian flag because it’s a flag of ‘genocide’.

“The protesters were carrying an upside-down Canadian flag with the word “Decolonize” written on it. The servicemen peacefully asked the mob a few questions and then quietly left.

“Since then, the far Left and the media have turned this innocuous story into a case of “Nazis” disrupting an ‘indigenous’ religious ceremony.

“The servicemen are part of a multiracial men’s club called ‘The Proud Boys’ which is anti-Nazi, not to mention that two of the five servicemen are Metis and another is gay.

“Top military officials in Canada have run with this narrative, apologized to the mob and said the servicemen are facing

“severe consequences”.

This is a witch hunt.

“It’s despicable and we should be embarrassed that we treat our soldiers and sailors this way. We ask these men to die for our country and fight under our flag and then ruin them for daring to ask a few questions at a protest.

“When this petition reaches 10,000 signatures, I will fly to Halifax and personally deliver it to Rear Admiral John Newton of the Canadian Navy.

“Help save these five servicemen by signing the petition:

‘The Petition’:
The five servicemen who peacefully protested an anti-Canada demonstration must be exonerated by Rear Admiral John Newton of the Royal Canadian Navy.”

CBC again saying Cornwallis established ‘Genocide’:
The CBC later apologized for this interview, saying they forgot to slander Gavin McInnes about (tongue-in-cheek) ‘anti-Jewish’  remarks he previously made. They also apologized for being too journalistic, and not confrontational enough. And, of course, the racist CBC apologized for not having an “indigenous voice” on the broadcast. They then introduce an Aboriginal Industry lawyer and gave her more time than McInnes got:

‘Aboriginal Supremacy Rebounds On The Media’

So, back in the swing of things with a racist rant from aboriginal women engaged in an illegal protest on Parliament Hill. The only redeeming aspect of this is that the unprovoked verbal assault was directed at an aboriginal-sympathetic ‘CBC’ reporter. Irony abounds. The CBC reporter wanted them to say that Trudeau was an improvement on Harper. Instead, she – and the male reporter who tried to civilly ask a similar question, were arrogantly lectured about how they were “guests here” — the ridiculous racist claim that the descendants of Siberian settlers own all of Canada. Of course, the CBC didn’t set them straight on this foolishness, much less call them out on their blatant racism. And the Prime Minister? Well, he avoided the issue, like always {See below}.
Welcome to Canada – 150 years in…


“A group of ‘indigenous’ {descendants of Siberian settlers} demonstrators who have been protesting on Parliament Hill held a press conference today that quickly descended into racist rants directed at reporters

“When the topic turned to the issue of missing and murdered ‘indigenous’ women, ‘CBC’ reporter Julie Van Dusen asked whether Justin Trudeau was to blame for ‘indigenous’ teens who have gone missing in Ontario. Van Dusen also asked if the protesters saw a difference between Trudeau and Harper on the issue.

“Van Dusen was clearly looking for a pro-Trudeau answer. She even prefaced her question by saying

“most Canadians think Justin Trudeau is making an effort.” …

“…That being said, she absolutely did not deserve the racist rant…

“First of all, while much of the establishment media won’t call the comments by Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail and Sophie McKeown ‘racist’, that is the only word that accurately describes it.

“Bringing up Van Dusen’s race, and referring to her as “white lady”, and then attacking another reporter as a “white man”, is a dehumanizing and disrespectful act, and needs to be called out as such. Racism is racism, regardless of the race or background of the perpetrator.

“Just imagine the gigantic firestorm if the roles were reversed.

“The over-the-top and extreme rhetoric won’t win anybody over. In fact, it will push people away. Neither Stephen Harper nor Justin Trudeau are guilty of a “genocide” and it is insane to think the ‘United Nations’ should, would, or can, “arrest” our leaders.

“…Canadians are united in wanting to see more prosperity and opportunity in our country, and wanting all ‘indigenous’ people to share in the potential of our great country. At the same time, the reality is that there is no ‘genocide’ taking place today and to say otherwise is simply factually incorrect.

“No nation is perfect, and Canada is no exception to that. Yet, that doesn’t change the fact that Canada is the greatest nation in the world, and we have much to celebrate. Feeling ashamed about the past, and demonizing people based on their race will only serve to tear our country apart. For Canada’s sake, we must move forward.”

{And, of course, the way forward is to END RACE BASED LAW…

–‘WATCH: Parliament Hill Protesters Launch Racist Rant At Reporters’,

Feature IMAGE: Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail (CBC)


Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail (left) and Sophie McKeown. (Photo: CBC)

“The Charles Lynch press theatre is a modest-sized affair located in Centre Block on Parliament Hill. Windowless and drably lit, with space for exactly 27 chairs, it is nonetheless one of the better public expressions of democracy in this country.

“Anyone with a cause even tangentially related to federal politics can book the room and have the event promoted to the ‘Parliamentary Press Gallery’. If the cause is compelling or newsworthy, the speaker or speakers will have an audience of journalists. It is a surefire way of getting one’s cause known.

“On June 29, Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail and her group, ‘Wabi’s Village: A Community of Hearts’, did exactly this. An activist from Attawapiskat ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 3,585 people} Reserve in northern Ontario {One of the most dysfunctional reserves in Canada – See Links below…}, Wabano-Iahtail had booked the room to speak about her group’s frustration over the ‘Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls National Inquiry’.

“Slow, disorganized and beset by departures of key staff, the MMIW inquiry is a worthy target — particularly because it served as one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s main wedge issues in the election campaign against Stephen Harper. Wabano-Iahtail could have made a compelling case that, for all his talk, Trudeau’s devotion to the cause was like the Haida tattoo on his left bicep — barely skin deep.

“Instead, Wabano-Iahtail resorted to sexist and racist comments to get her point across.

Julie Van Dusen (Twitter)

“When ‘CBC’ reporter Julie Van Dusen, one of about 10 journalists in the room, suggested Trudeau was “making an effort” on ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler’} issues, speaker Candace Day Neveau demurred.

“Have you seen how many teenagers are going missing in Thunder Bay?” Day Neveau said. “And there’s ‘white supremacy’. That’s what’s going on.”

“Van Dusen:

“How can he be blamed for that?”

“This is where things went sideways.

“Excuse me? did I just hear you correctly? How can he be blamed for that? Excuse me, don’t speak to us that way,” said Wabano-Iahtail. “Step out. I don’t want to hear from you.”

This marked the first time in recent history, according to Press Gallery officials, that an invited speaker had asked an accredited journalist to leave a press conference in the theatre.
{Wabano-Iahtail’s racial arrogance is astounding…}

“To be clear, there was absolutely nothing in Van Dusen’s tone, or in the substance of her preamble or question, to suggest disrespect. It was a simple request for comment on the current Prime Minister’s lack of action on an issue he claims is close to his heart.

“Yet, when CTV journalist Glen McGregor essentially repeated Van Dusen’s question —

“I’m asking how Justin Trudeau’s record compares to Stephen Harper’s record. Do you think he’s improved the situation?”

— Wabano-Iahtail doubled down.
{That’s what racists do…}

“You know what, ‘white people’? You’ve had your voice here for 524 years. [For] 524 years we’ve been invisible, ‘white lady’! Invisible for 524 years. Look how fast your ‘white man’ comes and steps up for you. Where is everyone else to come and step up for us?”

“Racism is, in part, the belief that someone’s skin colour dictates their thoughts and actions. Sexism is, in part, the assumption that women are intellectually or otherwise inferior to men, and therefore need ‘rescuing’. 

Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail (CBC)

What Wabano-Iahtail said was both racist and sexist — and I don’t use either term lightly.

“Julie Van Dusen is a veteran reporter with 35 years experience covering Ottawa and Parliament Hill. She started on the Hill in the days when politics was much more of a boys’ club — a locker room with nicer seats. And in the course of asking a question in a media conference last week — in 2017 — she was reduced to her skin colour and gender. She was pointed at, shouted down and asked to leave her place of work — by another woman, no less.

“Standing at a podium, with journalists hanging on her every word, Wabano-Iahtail had a golden opportunity to state what she and her group clearly believe — that the Trudeau government isn’t a true ally of {so-called} ‘indigenous’ people…

“Wabano-Iahtail could have highlighted it all to a national audience, practically within spitting distance of the PM himself. Her behaviour did absolutely nothing for her cause. In fact, by turning a press conference into a sideshow, she has cheapened it.”

Trudeaus Enter The Protest Tipi (Canada150)

“After an ‘indigenous’ {descendants of Siberian settlers} “reoccupation” of Parliament Hill led to a standoff with police into the early hours of Thursday morning, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he understands the message being sent by activists and urged that they be treated with respect…
{No mention of aboriginals treating Canada with respect and no mention of the Rule of Law from the Prime Minister of Canada. The clueless twit went on to compound his incompetence…:}

“He suggested there are good reasons ‘indigenous’ people may not want to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday {Thereby encouraging more protest and disruption for Canada’s birthday and beyond…}.

“A group of ‘indigenous’ people and supporters had tried to erect a teepee on Parliament Hill Wednesday night, but were blocked by police well into the night before being allowed to {illegally} put it up just inside Parliament Hill gates.
{Just another example of Canada’s refusal to defend itself…}

“On Thursday morning, tempers flared during a news conference held by the ‘indigenous’ demonstrators after they {irrationally} took offence to a question posed by a ‘CBC’ reporter; they demanded she leave, then ended the conference…

“Their anger escalated quickly after the reporter asked them to answer her question.

“We don’t want you here. Can you please leave?”

said ‘elder’ {‘old person’} Sophie McKeown from Moose Cree ‘First Nation’ {‘Siberian settler community’, a ‘nation’ of 4,680 people}.

“After the reporter refused to leave and another reporter from ‘CTV’ asked a similar question, Wabano-Iahtail accused the reporters in the room of showing their “‘white’ privilege” and “‘white’ fragility”, and eventually ended the news conference.

“You can’t take our {racist} ‘truth’,” she said. “Look how many people came to bat for you, ‘white’ lady. And you’re a guest here. Without us, you’d be homeless {This, from a culture that can’t seem to care for their own homes, much less build them}. This is over.”

“The exchange occurred after a tense night during which nine people were detained and then released {Once again, Canadian law was not enforced for political reasons} for trying to erect a teepee on Parliament Hill without a permit.

“Eventually, in the early hours of Thursday morning, the demonstrators were permitted to {illegally} put up the teepee just inside the Parliament Hill gates, near the East Block.

“During the news conference Thursday morning, the speakers {who had already committed a criminal act} said they were not satisfied with the ‘compromise’.

“That teepee needs to be moved into the centre of this Parliament,” said John Fox. “That teepee should not be in a little corner by itself.”

“On Thursday evening, organizers said they’d been given permission by the RCMP to move the teepee right onto Parliament Hill, though the exact location was still being worked out. The group was feeling “cautiously optimistic”, said Freddy Stoneypoint…

“Our group is here to educate people,” said Candace Day Neveau, with the {self-styled} ‘Bawating Water Protectors’. “We’re here to say that celebrating ‘Canada 150’ is difficult for our people because of what we’ve been through. It’s celebrating ‘our pain’.”

“Asked what the group was told by the RCMP when they were blocked last night, Day Neveau told reporters that police said they should have applied six months ago for permission to erect a teepee on Parliament Hill.

“Those aren’t our ways,” she said. “We don’t have to honour the bureaucracy.”
{“We don’t have to follow the rules because of our race. But we hypocritically ‘honour the bureaucracy’ by using our status and medical cards…”}

“The police only allowed them to erect their teepee near East Block after the demonstrators stood their ground and insisted they weren’t going to leave, she said.
{Proving once again – to the detriment of Canada – that the law is not applied fairly or equally where race is concerned…}

“In Charlottetown Thursday, Trudeau said he ‘understands’ the issues that ‘indigenous’ groups are raising {He is so full of ‘understanding’…}.

“We just have to make sure that we deal with both what are going to be historic crowds on ‘Canada Day’ on the Hill, but also deal with people in a respectful and a responsible way,” he said. “That’s what I expect of our security services.”
{That would mean respecting the majority of Canadians while cracking down on those who cause disruption!}

“Heightened security measures will be in place around the capital this weekend, including armed police officers and surveillance cameras. About 500,000 people are expected to join in ‘Canada Day’ celebrations around Parliament Hill…”

“Many ‘indigenous’ people won’t be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday, and with good reason, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested Thursday as he called for the so-called “reoccupiers” to be treated with respect and understanding.

“While Canadians across the country fly flags from porches and don red and white face paint, ‘indigenous’ groups are planning {disrespectful} protests and ceremonial events to drive home the point that for them, there is nothing to celebrate…

“Canadians need to understand not everyone will be celebrating ‘Canada 150’ the same way, Trudeau said.

“We recognize that over the past decades, generations, indeed centuries Canada has failed ‘Indigenous’ Peoples.” …

“Senator Sandra Lovelace Nicholas said in a statement Thursday as an indigenous woman from the Tobique ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 2,422 people} in New Brunswick, she is not celebrating this weekend.

“Our history predates colonization yet we are still being treated like third class citizens even though treaties were signed in good faith on our part,” she said.

“We are of the opinion that we will celebrate when all treaties are settled, all ‘First Nations’ children enjoy equality in education, health care, safe drinking water, quality housing and governance in our {ancestors’} own land.”

{The Treaties that she wants ‘honoured’ document the ceding of all rights to the land. For a member of the Canadian Senate to talk such ahistorical, hypocritical, racist nonsense is appalling. She should show some integrity and resign…}

“Social media hashtags like #UNsettleCanada150 and #Resistance150 are all over ‘Twitter’ and ‘Facebook’, as people post their reasons for not celebrating.

“Flyers posted on telephone poles in some cities described the ‘Canada 150’ festivities as

“a celebration of ‘indigenous’ {non-existent} ‘genocide’.”

“In May, the ‘indigenous’ group ‘Idle No More’ called upon ‘indigenous’ people to rise up on July 1 with a

“National Day of Action — Unsettling Canada 150.”

“Among the plans are a protest event at ‘Indigenous’ Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett’s ‘Canada Day’ picnic in her Toronto riding, and an event in Winnipeg to draw attention to the disparities between the city and life on ‘Shoal Lake 40 ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 640 people}…”

“Organizers said ‘Indigenous’ Peoples’ have little reason to celebrate colonization as Canada marks its sesquicentennial.

“Jessica Bolduc, who was with the Sault Ste. Marie group, said they wanted to build a teepee on what is ‘unceded’ {‘claimed’ former} Algonquin territory.

“Bolduc said it is also about recognizing there is much work to do before anyone can say Canada had achieved ‘reconciliation’.

“I think Canada has one sort of view and way in which they engage with the world around them and then there is the ‘indigenous’ experience {Because they’re ‘different’ from everyone else…},” said Bolduc.

“We talk about this smart and caring nation, but don’t acknowledge that those ‘privileges’ aren’t afforded to ‘Indigenous’ Peoples’ in the same way that they are to folks who have settled here, whether that was 200 years ago or to people who we are welcoming here today in a ceremony of becoming Canadian,” she said.

“The demonstration was held across from the former Langevin Block, which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had renamed as the Office of the Prime Minister and the Privy Council on June 21.

“He said the change reflected what he called the “deep pain” felt by ‘indigenous’ communities over having the building named after Hector-Louis Langevin, a Father of Confederation and an architect of the residential school system {Where aboriginals learned to read and write}.

‘Aboriginal Liberals Say ‘NO’ To Freedom of Speech’

“Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP and Liberal ‘Indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} Caucus chairman Don Rusnak is calling for the Conservative Party to remove Sen. Lynn Beyak…

“Sen. Beyak refused an invitation to meet with the Liberal Party’s ‘Indigenous’ Caucus, an organization for which Rusnak {who is mixed race – Ukrainian and aboriginal} serves as chairman.

{We call upon the Liberal Party of Canada to abolish its racist and segregationist ‘Indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} Caucus, as it is offensive and contrary to the anti-racist and integrative values of the people of Canada. Organizing on the basis of Race is a primitive and divisive tactic that undermines Canadian unity. Furthermore, we call upon the Liberal Party of Canada to expel overt racists — of all races — from its caucus and Party…}

“In response, Rusnak is calling on the Conservative Party to exhibit “deliberate and sincere action” regarding the legacy of residential schools, going beyond Beyak’s removal from the ‘Senate Standing Committee on Aboriginal People’.

“Interim Conservative Party Leader Rona Ambrose removed Beyak from the committee on Thursday for comments the Dryden Senator made casting residential schools in a positive light on March 7.

“In 2017, the House of Commons stands united, across party lines, in its efforts to confront the horrific legacy of the Residential School System and the systematic abuse of ‘Indigenous’ children,” Rusnak expressed in a written statement.
(You don’t get to speak for everyone…}

“Senator Beyak’s comments only perpetuate the ‘multi-generational trauma’ and lost trust felt by those who survived this dark chapter in Canadian history.”

“Rusnak expressed concern over Beyak’s continued defence of those comments as recently as April1 when she responded to the Indigenous caucus’ invitation to meet by writing,

“my speech included a tribute to the good and well-intentioned men and women in my region and across Canada who worked in the schools. Hundreds of letters of support to my office verify that obvious truth.”

“Rusnak took aim at the broader Conservative Party and its leader, asking Ambrose to stand for {one-sided} reconciliation with ‘indigenous’ Peoples.

“How can the Conservative caucus truly address the ‘horrific legacy’ of residential schools when one of their own continues to openly hold these views?” he posed…”

Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP and Liberal ‘indigenous’ Caucus chairman Don Rusnak (TBNewswatch)

Please vote in the poll:

“The MP for Thunder Bay-Rainy River is welcoming the removal of Sen. Lynn Beyak from the Senate committee on ‘Aboriginal Peoples’.

“Don Rusnak says Beyak’s comments made last month, calling the work of men and women at residential schools “good deeds”, were ignorant and harmful, and have no place in Canada.

{Actually, it is the repression of Free Speech that has no place in Canada. Aboriginal racsim continually tries to suppress any accurate historical representation and interferes with any legitimate attempts at moving forward. The constant portrayal of aboriginals as innocent victims and the rest of Canadians as evil is a racist fiction that must be confronted at every turn. The fact that overt racists are now elected to Parliament – providing they are aboriginal – indicates just how far Canada has gone down the wrong road…}

–‘Rusnak welcomes Beyak’s removal’,
Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal, April 7, 2017


“Last month, the ‘Indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} ‘Liberal’ Caucus was disturbed by the ignorant and harmful comments that Conservative Lynn Beyak made about the Residential School System. Comments like these have no place in Canada {spoken like totalitarians} – especially in our country’s highest chambers of decision-making and civic responsibility.

{No, that’s EXACTLY where we need ALL opinions! Your disrespect for free speech and democracy is frightening…}

“The ‘Indigenous’ Caucus took the initiative to invite Senator Beyak to discuss the issue. In an e-mail to our ‘Indigenous’ Caucus dated April 1st 2017, Senator Beyak continued to defend her {accurate} comments, stating,

“My speech included a tribute to the good and well-intentioned men and women in my region and across Canada who worked in the schools. Hundreds of letters of support to my office verify that obvious truth.”

“While in her letter she notes “everyone needs more education”, Senator Beyak has refused an invitation to meet with the Liberal ‘Indigenous’ Caucus to discuss the matter further.

“We welcome the Leader of the Official Opposition, the Honourable Rona Ambrose’s decision to remove Senator Beyak from the ‘Senate Standing Committee on Aboriginal Peoples’, and we wish to thank all those who came forward to voice their concern and call for her removal. However, we must ask: How can the Conservative caucus truly address the horrific legacy of residential schools when one of their own continues to openly hold these views?

“According to Ambrose, Senator Beyak’s appalling views on the Residential School System are out of line with the Conservative Party’s history on the file. As Ambrose reminded us, it was former Prime Minister Stephen Harper who formally apologized for the federal government’s role in the Residential School System, so that the {Partial} ‘Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission’ could be struck. In 2017, the House of Commons stands united, across party lines, in its efforts to confront the horrific legacy of the Residential School System and the systematic abuse of ‘Indigenous’ children. Senator Beyak’s comments only perpetuate the ‘multi-generational trauma’ and lost trust felt by those who survived this dark chapter in Canadian history…”

‘Conservatives Censor The Truth’

“Senator Lynn Beyak has been removed from the Senate’s ‘Aboriginal Peoples’ committee, interim ‘Conservative’ Leader Rona Ambrose told ‘CBC News’ in an interview Wednesday. Ambrose said she made the decision jointly with the newly-minted leader of the Conservative caucus in the Senate, Larry Smith.

“I have been very clear that I do not in any way support Senator Beyak’s comments about residential schools. There is no way to explain her comments {If you truly believe that, you have much to learn!},” Ambrose said. “She has been removed from the Aboriginal affairs committee in the Senate and I think that’s the right thing to do. I don’t think her comments send the right message.” …

{YOU are the one who needs replacing…}

“There had been mounting calls for Beyak to resign, including from ‘Assembly of ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler communities’} National Chief Perry Bellegarde and ‘Indigenous’ Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett…

“Ambrose said Wednesday it was untenable to keep Beyak on that committee, given her views are so out of line with the party’s history on this file. It was Harper who formally apologized for the federal government’s role in this “dark chapter” in Canada’s history, she said.

“I remember being in the chamber when we made the apology, and it was so important because then the {Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission could be struck, and the ‘good work’ could begin.”

“The {Chinese aboriginal} chairwoman of the Senate committee on ‘aboriginal people’ is asking a Conservative senator to rethink her place on the committee after she said there were positive aspects to Canada’s residential school system {An obvious truth…}.

“Conservative Lynn Beyak made the comments…in the Upper Chamber, saying that the government-funded, church-operated schools…were not all bad.

“Dyck says her office has been inundated with phone calls and emails asking her to remove Beyak from the committee, a power that she does not have under the rules of the Senate.

“In a statement today, Dyck says Beyak’s comments may have tarnished the committee’s reputation and that her opinions may negatively impact the future work of the committee.

“Aboriginal people must be able to feel that they can trust the members of the committee and that we respect them, Dyck said.

Senator Lynn Beyak

“Senator Lynn Beyak says she doesn’t need any more education about the horrors of the residential school system because she “suffered” alongside ‘indigenous’ people who were sent to the institutions.

“The Conservative senator from northwestern Ontario reiterated her defence of the schools in an interview with ‘CBC News’ on Monday.

“I made my statements, and I stand by them,” she said. “I think, if you go across Canada, there are shining examples from sea to sea of people who owe their lives to the schools,” she said, while acknowledging that the bad parts of the schools were “horrific.”

“I’ve suffered with them up there. I appreciate their suffering more than they’ll ever know,” she said. “The best way to heal is to move forward together. Not to blame, not to point fingers, not to live in the past.”

“Beyak, who sits as a member of the Senate’s ‘Aboriginal Peoples’ committee, said she has received hundreds of positive remarks after she delivered a speech in which she chastised the {Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission for not “focusing on the good” of the “well-intentioned” institutions.

“There were two sides to every story. We have 700 letters, we’ll make it a binder, we’ll make it all available,” she said Monday. “Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of letters.”

“Despite Beyak’s claim she has been inundated with positive comments, other groups, including the {Left-wing}  ‘Anglican Church of Canada’, have gone public to denounce her remarks.

“There was nothing good about children going missing and no report being filed. There was nothing good about burying children in unmarked graves far from their ancestral homes. It heaped cruelty upon cruelty for the child taken and the parent left behind,”

wrote the church, which ran some of the schools, in an open letter to Beyak…

{“In a letter sent Monday, church leaders said they were “dismayed” that Beyak would try and shed a positive light on the system, telling her, rather, “the overall view is grim. It is shadowed and dark; it is sad and shameful.”

“I don’t need any more education. I’ve been involved since we double dated when I was 15 with an Aboriginal fellow and his wife,” she said. “I’ve worked with them, they’re my friends, they spoke at my husband’s funeral. We all get along great. We want a better future.”

“Saskatchewan {aboriginal} Liberal Senator Lillian Dyck, the chair of the ‘Aboriginal Peoples’ committee, has said Beyak should consider resigning from the committee given the outrage generated by her defence of residential schools.

“Dyck said she fears witnesses will be reluctant to appear before the committee with Beyak at the table {What a racist cheap shot! This biased ‘Chair’ should resign…}. The Conservative senator said there is no way she will resign.

“Nobody’s given me a valid reason why I should [resign]. I have work to do, for taxpayers and for Native people.”

“Beyak said she is pushing for a national audit of sorts of all money the federal government spends on ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler’ communities}. She said Monday she doesn’t believe the money flows to the “grassroots”, and is misappropriated by chiefs.

“In her March 7 speech, Beyak said teachers and administrators at the residential schools were “well-intentioned” and they “didn’t mean to hurt anybody”.

“Mistakes were made at residential schools — in many instances, horrible mistakes that overshadowed some good things that also happened at those schools,” she said.

“In a separate committee appearance, she pushed a historian to tell her colleagues about all the good that was done at these schools.

“There were many people who came from residential schools with good training and good language skills…”

Senator Lynn Beyak (Photo: CBC)

“Conservative Senator Lynn Beyak says she has received much support after she defended residential schools in the Senate last week, and is ignoring calls to apologize to survivors of the system who have branded her remarks insensitive and inaccurate.

“In her first public remarks since ‘CBC News’ reported her comments more than a week ago, Beyak said she has many ‘indigenous’ friends and those that read her speech “recognize her knowledge, compassion and expertise” on the ‘First Nations’ file.

“She also said they support her calls for an audit of all money

“flowing in and out of reservations, and talks with grassroots ‘indigenous’ people,” she said.

“Which ‘indigenous’ people are your friends?” Independent Senator Patrick Brazeau said in an email sent to all Senate offices in response to Beyak’s statement. “As a former national chief, this is important to me.”

{Why, so you can try and intimidate them into silence, as has been done to so many others???}

“The Senator has stated unequivocally, many times over the years, in noting certain positive aspects of residential schools, as also recorded in the ‘Truth and Reconciliation Commission’ report, one can never excuse or minimize the suffering that victims have experienced,” Beyak said in her statement, written in the third person…

“There were thoughtful phone calls and letters of support and respectful, dissenting viewpoints were also shared,”

Beyak’s statement released Thursday said, adding that she has been involved “personally and politically” with ‘First Nations’ people since 1964. (Beyak was born in 1949.)…

“I speak partly for the record, but mostly in memory of the kindly and well-intentioned men and women and their descendants — perhaps some of us here in this chamber — whose remarkable works, good deeds and historical tales in the residential schools go unacknowledged for the most part,” she said during her initial address.

“In a separate meeting of the Senate’s ‘Aboriginal Peoples’ committee last month, Beyak said,

“I was disappointed in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report in that it didn’t focus on the good…”

“In this era of fake news and exaggeration, Senator Lynn Beyak is especially grateful to those who have taken the time to do their own research and to deeply and respectfully engage,” her statement said.

“She acknowledges the

“honest and ethical journalists who wrote, and the intelligent well-informed citizens who are not intimidated by voices who seek to stifle debate.”

–‘Senator Lynn Beyak stands by residential school remarks, cites ‘fake news’’,
John Paul Tasker, CBC News, March 16, 2017



“The poor, benighted Canadian Senate is struggling to restore its credibility, but it is approaching it by self-consciously persecuting its own members…

“The dilemma of the Senate is illustrated by the calls for the resignation of Don Meredith and Lynn Beyak….

“Sen. Beyak’s offence was to point out that the demonized residential schools for native people were in part staffed by “kindly and well-intentioned men and women”. An NDP {aboriginal} MP (Romeo Saganash) has demanded her resignation and the Liberal ‘indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} caucus has asked for Sen. Beyak’s removal from the Conservative Senate caucus.

Of course, Sen. Beyak is correct. Most of the teachers in those remote schools were dedicated people who believed in what they were doing and were trying to prepare their charges for full participation in Canadian life. Some were negligent and some were racists, and there were terrible incidents and appalling misfortunes, including epidemics that wrought a grim toll among the students. But the residential schools program was not an exercise in deliberate discrimination.

Most of the children were plucked from desperate and hopeless squalor and, despite the disdain of the deputy minister of the time the program was established, the authorities generally meant to educate the native people usefully.

“Sen. Beyak should be commended for not joining in this frenzied self-flagellation induced by native leaders who, in effect, claim that the Europeans had no business coming here, but that the native people are prepared to accept as their due the entire fruit of 400 years of effort in transforming the barbarous and underpopulated territory of Canada into a ‘G7’ country.

“We must reach a generous solution to the legitimate grievances of the native people, but it may have to be legislated over the courts, which have been largely taken over by advocates of declaring the whole country a sacred aboriginal burial ground where Europeans and their descendants have been trespassing interlopers these four centuries.

“Conservative Senator Lynn Beyak mounted a defence of the residential school system for aboriginal children in the Red Chamber…lamenting that the “good deeds” accomplished by “well-intentioned” religious teachers have been overshadowed by negative reports documented by the ‘{Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission’.

“I speak partly for the record, but mostly in memory of the kindly and well-intentioned men and women and their descendants — perhaps some of us here in this chamber — whose remarkable works, good deeds and historical tales in the residential schools go unacknowledged for the most part,” she said.

“The commission, which conducted an exhaustive six-year study of the system {No. The Commission was biased from the beginning, to the point of not encouraging those with positive stories to even testify. In addition, those who worked, taught and administered the schools were, for the most part, remarkably absent. As well, the stories of abuse were mostly unsubstantiated and were left unchallenged; hence, very few criminal charges resulted, despite the many financially-remunerated claims of abuse…}, found physical, mental and sexual abuse was rampant {in some schools}, and some 6,000 children died {out of 150,000} while in care because of malnourishment or disease {or accident, like fire…}.

“Beyak, an Ontario senator, appointed by former prime minister Stephen Harper in 2013, said she has spoken to ‘indigenous’ people who have told her of the positive experiences they had while at the schools, adding many have kept their Christian faith after it was imparted to them by school administrators.

“Mistakes were made at residential schools — in many instances, horrible mistakes that overshadowed some good things that also happened at those schools,”

she said, rising to speak on Senator Kim Pate’s inquiry on the ‘over-representation’ of ‘indigenous’ women in Canadian prisons, a topic Beyak largely ignored in her lengthy speech.
{They are ‘over-represented’ in the prison system because they are ‘over-represented’ in the COMMISSION of crimes…}

“Senator Murray Sinclair, who served as the {biased and bigoted} chief commissioner of the ‘{Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission’, sat in the chamber during Beyak’s speech, and was the first to respond.

“I am a bit shocked, Senator, that you still hold some views that have been proven to be incorrect over the years, but, nonetheless, I accept that you have the right to hold them,” he said.

“He asked Beyak a question about the issue at hand — ‘indigenous’ women in prison — but before she could respond, her allocated time ran out and a request for an extension was denied by fellow Conservative Senator Don Plett, among others.

“This was not the first time Beyak has sought to paint the residential school system in a different light. At a recent meeting of the Senate’s ‘Aboriginal Peoples’ committee, she said those who ran the schools

“didn’t mean to hurt anybody.”

“The fathers and sons and family members of the nuns and priests, to this day, have to bear the reputation as well, and nobody meant to hurt anybody,” she said. “The little smiles in the ‘Truth and Reconciliation Commission’ are real, the clothes are clean and the meals are good. There were many people who came from residential schools with good training and good language skills, and, of course, there were the atrocities as well.

“I was disappointed in the {Partial} Truth and {One-way} Reconciliation Commission’s report in that it didn’t focus on the good. The people I talk to are Christians.”

“She said the commission proposed few new solutions to address the poor socioeconomic conditions faced by many ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler’} people today.

“There are excellent calls to action in the ‘Truth and Reconciliation Report’ {?}, but, frankly, I did not see any new light shed on these issues.”

“Jim Miller, a professor of history at the University of Saskatchewan, who was a witness at the committee that day, said, when pressed by Beyak, that a very small minority {Evidence??} of ‘First Nations’ children experienced good things at the schools.

“My research told me, though, that overwhelmingly people had a very mixed experience.”
{Which could be said of all students, not just aboriginal…}

“Miller also noted the commission did document that some students had positive memories of their experiences.
{They did not encourage those with positive experiences; nor were witnesses cross-examined on the accuracy of their testimonies. It was an Inquisition, with only token positive stories for the pretence of balance…}

“Indeed, the commission found some ‘indigenous’ students spoke highly of the skills they acquired, the benefits of recreation and sports, and the friendships they made at a school, but on the whole, for most students, academic success was elusive in the crowded classrooms and they often left feeling isolated from their families, culture and language.

“Beyak also said Tuesday it is unfair to brand Hector-Louis Langevin, widely regarded as one of the architects of the system, as a ‘racist’, because many parents chose to send their children to faith-based schools on reserve, where they in turn learned valuable teachings about Jesus and the Gospel {And how to READ and WRITE!}.

“Beyak, who hails from northwestern Ontario, also praised former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau’s 1969 ‘White Paper’ on ‘indigenous issues’, which proposed doing away with the ‘Indian Act’, treaties, and eliminating a distinct legal Indian status.

{‘WHY END RACE BASED LAW?’ (1969 White Paper): https://endracebasedlaw.wordpress.com/2015/06/20/why-end-race-based-law/ }

“The leaders of the day called it ‘forced assimilation,’ but I don’t believe that was Trudeau’s intent. I think he just wanted us to be Canadians together. The concept was to trade your status card for Canadian citizenship … it was brilliant and revolutionary,” she said.”

“NDP {aboriginal} MP Romeo Saganash is calling on Conservative Senator Lynn Beyak to resign after comments she made about residential schools.

“Saganash is the Member of Parliament for ‘Abitibi—Baie-James—Nunavik—Eeyou’, and a residential school ‘survivor’…”
{He ‘survived’ learning to read and write, and ended up a Canadian Senator; yet, never a word of gratitude…}

“An attempt by Conservative Senator Lynn Beyak to paint the residential school system as “well-intentioned” is akin to defending actions taken by Adolf Hitler against the Jewish people in the Second World War, NDP MP and residential schools ‘survivor’ {‘former student’} Roméo Saganash said Thursday.

“It equals saying what Hitler did to the Jewish [people] was good, that he wasn’t ill-intentioned in doing what he did. So, that’s why it’s unacceptable,”

Saganash said in an interview with CBC News outside the House of Commons…

“‘Assembly of ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler communities’} National Chief Perry Bellegarde says he’s disappointed a Conservative senator is peddling this view…

“The residential schools were profoundly damaging to ‘First Nations’. Children were forcibly taken from their families and homes for the express purpose of trying to eradicate our languages and our identities. This was an attempt at ‘genocide’,” Bellegarde said…

{Meanwhile, the politically-correct cowards in her own party sold the Senator out…}

“Cathy McLeod, the Tory ‘indigenous’ affairs critic, said Beyak’s remarks are not reflective of the larger Conservative Party, as it was former prime minister Stephen Harper who formally apologized for the role the federal government played in administering the system.

“We were really proud, it was one of the proudest days of our lives, when we did the residential school apology, and so, you know, I think those are comments that I think she needs to reflect upon … and the impact that those words might have had on the ‘survivors’ {‘students’} that suffered from horrific abuse,” she said in an interview.

“Conservative Senator Don Plett, the party’s whip in the Senate, said while Beyak’s views are ‘out of step’ with other members of her caucus,

“all senators are independent and entitled to their own opinions.”

“Saskatchewan {aboriginal} Senator Lillian Dyck, the ‘chair’ of the Senate’s Aboriginal affairs committee, was in the chamber during Beyak’s 20-minute speech and said she exchanged exasperated looks with {aboriginal} Senator Murray Sinclair, the {biased} ‘chair’ of the TRC.

“I was shocked. We were looking at each other like, ‘what’s going on?’ I wasn’t really sure what the main intention of her speech was {Nonsense. You just refuse to listen because of your bias…}.” …

The demonized image of the Residential schools is now part of the not-to-be-questioned orthodoxy of the Aboriginal Narrative. Here’s what happens when you even dare to ask a question on the topic:

“A high-ranking ‘First Nations’ {‘Siberian settler’} leader has joined in the call for an apology from local {B.C.} MLA Linda Larson for her “incredibly ignorant” comments regarding residential schools.

Boundary Similkameen MLA Linda Larson

“While leading a legislative committee meeting on health in Victoria last week, Larson asked an executive from the {segregated} ‘First Nations’ Health Authority’:

“How long do you think before the legacy of those residential schools finally burns itself out of the ‘First Nations’ people?”

“Later, she wondered:

“How many generations is it going to take before the words ‘residential school’ no longer play a part in how people feel?”

“Grand Chief Stewart Phillip said Larson should offer an “unconditional apology” for her comments.

“I thought they were absolutely inappropriate, ill-informed and, quite frankly, incredibly ignorant,”

said Phillip, president of the ‘Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs’ and former head of the Penticton Indian Band.

Stewart Phillip

“Just as the world still remembers other human-rights atrocities, like the ‘Holocaust’, to honour victims and learn from the past, he explained, the ‘lasting’ {For how long?} effects of residential schools on ‘First Nations’ people must also not be forgotten.

“She should know and understand that,” said Phillip. “That’s why I find it absolutely astounding that she would make such comments.”

“B.C. New Democratic Party leader John Horgan has also called on Larson to apologize, but the MLA for Boundary-Similkameen apparently stands by what she said.
She didn’t return a call for comment Wednesday, but said in a statement:

“What happened with residential schools was an absolute tragedy {?}. There was and continues to be horrible consequences to peoples’ lives because of residential schools. I know too many people in our community who have suffered.

“Every member of that committee, regardless of their party, is interested in one thing – how can we work together to help people. At that committee meeting, we were talking to the health authority about how we can help people. I’m surprised and disappointed that Mr. Horgan would try and use my comments for partisan purposes.”

“Horgan also called on Premier Christy Clark to force Larson to apologize, but that request was brushed off during a stop in Penticton on Tuesday.

“The ‘First Nations’ people who were in the room (at the committee meeting) didn’t express any offence at it at the time, so I think we can follow their lead,” said Clark, adding Larson “was really trying to understand what it is we can all do to try and heal those wounds, which is so important for us as a generation.”

“Phillip said Clark’s refusal to order an apology reflects the Premier’s own “cavalier” attitude towards ‘First Nations’…”


“The following is an excerpt from the transcript of the July 7 ‘Select Standing Committee on Health’ meeting, at which MLA Linda Larson made her controversial comments on residential schools during an exchange with presenter Richard Jock, chief operating officer of the {segregated} ‘First Nations’ Health Authority’:

JOCK: “I think the legacy of residential schools is one that we really need to carefully address and do so throughout our system. In fact, trauma-informed care is a really important ingredient to improving care….”

LARSON: “Thank you. That gives us a chance to ask some questions. You made a referral to the residential schools. How long do you think before the legacy of those residential schools finally burns itself out of the ‘First Nations’ people?”

JOCK: “Well, I think there are a couple of aspects to that. One is that as long as our people feel uncomfortable with the system, as long as they feel that institutions are not friendly to them, then I think the legacy will not find its way out of the system.”

LARSON: “What institutions now are not friendly? I mean, the residential schools were horrific. There’s no doubt about that. I have many friends, and some have died too young as a result of the connection through their parents. I’m talking generationally. How many generations is it going to take before the words “residential school” no longer play a part in how people feel?”

JOCK: “Well, that one’s a tough question. I guess what I would say is that as long as people are feeling that they are being discriminated against when they present at a hospital or in any kind of a mainstream institution, then we’ll not see the end of that.”
