‘This is Ridiculous!’

“Ron Swain, vice-chief with the ‘Congress of Aboriginal Peoples’, told Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan during consultations with ‘indigenous’ groups Wednesday that aboriginal communities deserve the same rights as provincial governments {!?!}, which have the authority under the ‘National Defence Act’ to call in the military to fight civil unrest and during other crises.

“We believe, in protecting our ‘sovereign territory’ and our issues around environmental concerns, we should be able to trigger the same response and have ‘our Armed Forces’ defending our treaties and ‘our territories’ {otherwise known as ‘Canada’},”

Thank you, Tragically Hip

#manmachinepoemtour

No politics tonight people, music is for everyone. It’s a night to unite as proud Canadians, and say goodbye, and thank you to our national treasure, The Tragically Hip. It’s their last concert on the ‘Man Machine Poem Tour’, in Kingston Ontario, Canada, where they started in 1984.

The CBC is broadcasting it and have links to various ways to listen to and watch the broadcast, from anywhere around the world. I have also posted it below.

Live streams are happening all across the country in bars, restaurants & home parties.

Most Canadians are blissfully unaware that many aboriginal leaders are attempting to create separate, independent ‘nations’ {countries} within the borders of Canada — ‘nations’ that would ignore Canadian law while still being subsidized by the Canadian people:   ERBLIsCanadaComingUnravelled(2016)800x800“The proposed citizenship law forms a central component of a broader initiative which seeks to develop a self-governing Anishinabek ‘Nation’.”

Canadian aboriginals as a “third order of government” — Federal, Provincial and aboriginal — was rejected for inclusion in the 1982 Constitution, rejected in the five federal-provincial conferences held on this topic, and rejected by the Canadian people in the 1992 Charlottetown Referendum. The continued insistence on this by aboriginal leadership shows absolutely no respect for the wishes of the Canadian people, and the decisions of the Canadian democracy.  Continue reading ‘Is Canada Coming Unravelled?’

‘Is Canada Coming Unravelled?’

“What do they have to teach us? We’ve been around for thousands and thousands of years… History didn’t begin when those guys got lost trying to find a new world. We weren’t lost, they were lost…
They have nothing to tell us of how to run our communities…”

ERBLIsCanadaComingUnravelled800x800The federal Government — ‘Liberal’, at the time — started offering “self-government” to Indian bands in the 1990s, deliberately and undemocratically defying the Canadian people, who had VOTED DOWN the concept as part of the ‘Charlottetown Referendum’. The current government has continued down this path, allowing bands “self-government” as an alternative to the Indian Act.

The problem with this approach is that the Indian leadership regard “self-government” and constitutions as steps along the path to independence and nationhood. The government is playing with fire, and Canada’s future is at stake…  Continue reading ‘Is Canada Coming Unravelled?’
