‘Race Based Law Not Fair To Anyone’

Lawyers continue to be the main beneficiaries of Race Based Law: 

“The federal ‘Liberal’ government has spent more than $110,000 fighting a ‘First Nations’ {‘descendant of Siberian settlers’} girl in court to block payment for orthodontic treatment that cost just $6,000, according to documents released under the ‘Access to Information Act’ and shared with ‘CBC News’.

‘No Treaty Leg To Stand On’

“There has been a lot of talk of late about treaties from the protesters trying to block the ‘Dakota Access Pipeline’, with the assertion that the land the pipeline is being built on is land the Sioux people never ceded to the federal government…

“…the ‘Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868’ seems to say that the tribe must accept the pipeline…

‘Governor General Joins The Aboriginal Industry’

“In 1874, ‘Treaty 4’ was signed in Fort Qu’Appelle and last Tuesday, Gov. Gen. David Johnston delivered a speech to ‘First Nations’ leaders during the annual ‘Treaty 4 Gathering’. 

erblgovernorgeneraljoinstheaboriginalindustry800x800

“Johnston told the crowd that he was pleased to be on hand to commemorate the signing of Treaty 4 because,

“In Canada, we are all treaty people.”

{The reality is that the contracts that were the Treaties have lost their legitimacy, as they no longer represent the actual written language contained in those legal documents. The only result of continuing to focus on them is to undermine Canada and whether the Governor General realizes it or not, he is now complicit in this. He had the chance to HONESTLY explain what was intended by Canada when they dictated the Treaties but instead, he hid behind gratuitous platitudes – to the detriment of Canada and its future.}  Continue reading ‘Governor General Joins The Aboriginal Industry’

Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day continues his push for a ‘partnership’ in the Ontario economy:

‘We Need To Be Full Partners in All Future Economic Growth through Treaty, ‘Inherent’ and Land Rights, Says Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day’

“This is the 166th anniversary of the signing of the ‘Robinson Huron Treaty’ {See below}. The lands and waters around Lakes Huron and Superior provided the resources for European settlers to farm, fish, mine and trade with our Peoples. The rich resources of our lands {and all the hard work, ingenuity and investment brought by Europeans and other immigrants from around the world} allowed the future economic growth of what would later become the Province of Ontario and the country of Canada.  Continue reading ‘Chief Wants More Money’

‘Pumping Gas Interfering With Picking Berries’

It’s not easy balancing a hunter/gatherer lifestyle and high-speed Internet:

“The ability of (our) children to hunt, eat moose, harvest berries and medicinal plants and learn their language while on the land hangs in the balance.”

‘Blueberry River ‘First Nation’ {B.C.} wants industrial development “suspended in our critical areas”. ERBLPumpingGasInterferingWithPickingBerries800x800“The Blueberry River ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 472 people…} has issued a lawsuit that their lawyers say

“puts into question future development in the northeast”.

‘How The Aboriginal Industry Wins In Court’

“…in Indian treaty rights cases, the standards of evidence and logic are not what they are elsewhere…

“In these trials by history (i.e, law office history), watching the highly-skilled, forceful attorneys at work serving the Indian cause was a thoroughly eye-opening experience.

“From them, I learned much about the selective use — and suppression of — historical and anthropological evidence…” 

ERBLHowTheAboriginalIndustryWinsInCourt800x800The Canadian people have been confused by a series of court rulings that have re-opened the issue of who owns Canada — 150 years after the fact.

Clearly-written Treaties — contracts with the simplest language possible — are “re-interpreted” and end up meaning the opposite of what they so obviously say.

Canadians justifiably wonder just what in the hell is going on in these courtrooms: Continue reading ‘How The Aboriginal Industry Wins In Court’

ANOTHER ‘TREATY ADJUSTMENT’

So You Think You Own Land?  

“We believe that you should be aware that if the government does not honor our Crown patent, all legal title to properties in Canada could be worthless if caught up in a native claim…” ERBLThisLandIsOurLand-HonourTheTreatiesForOnce800x800‘Restaurant Owner Says Canada Won’t Honour Crown Patent Title of Private Landowner’

   “I’ve had to deal with this for 23 years now. I eat, sleep and drink this thing,” Sauble Beach, Ontario, business owner Dave Dobson said Saturday in an interview. “It’s time to make people aware of what’s going on here.”

“Dobson is the owner of the ‘Crowd Inn’, a 67-year-old landmark take-out restaurant on the beach just north of the main Sauble sign.

“He owns the property, which he said was deeded through Crown patent in 1896 and is registered through the Ontario land registry system.

“But, because of its location, the property is part of the ongoing Saugeen ‘First Nation’ land claim to Sauble Beach north of Main St.

“Dobson, who took over the Crowd Inn from his dad and uncle in 1983, said he has spent more than $60,000 in legal and expert fees to defend his title to the land since being made aware of a land claim in 1992 and being named in the action in 1995.

“He said he fears the litigation could drag on for many more years, costing him much more money.

“Meanwhile, Dobson said he feels abandoned by the federal and provincial governments.

“He said Ottawa has shirked its responsibility to honour the Crown patent for the land.

“He has started an online petition…which calls on Canada to create a legally binding policy to protect the interests of third parties named in a ‘First Nations’ land claim…

‘The Toronto Purchase’

Whose ‘Traditional Land’ Is This? 

ERBLThisLandIsOurLand800x800

Even though the Nation of Canada and the City of Toronto recently hosted the Pan Am Games – and the financially-inept Ontario government absorbed most of the $2.5 billion in costs – people from faraway lands were greeted with this:

“The Mississaugas Of The New Credit ‘First Nation’ is proud to be the host ‘first nation’ of the Toronto2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am games. 

“As chief of the Mississaugas, I welcome you to our traditional lands…”

{This Land Is Our Land, Canada 2015 – Michele Tittler on race based land claims: https://youtu.be/w2MLu3-7vAg }

This foolishness {“our traditional lands”} went by with virtually no comment from Canadian historians or our governments; indeed, our governments were complicit in spreading what amounts to an historical lie. This has become commonplace, with Canadian officials constantly thanking the ‘traditional’ landowners, even when — as in this case — their claim is ridiculous…  Continue reading ‘The Toronto Purchase’

‘Health Care Is NOT A Treaty Right’

Welcome to another episode of ‘Canadian Mythology’:
Today’s Episode — “Treaties guarantee free health care for aboriginals”

ERBLTreatyRightsEqualsFreeHealthCare800x800“Treaty Number Six was unique as it was THE ONLY TREATY OF ITS SORT WITH AN IMPLIED PROVISION FOR HEALTH CARE. It allows a medicine chest to be kept in the home of an Indian agent for the use and benefit of the aboriginals.

“Some aboriginals have interpreted this provision as extending to all who signed the Numbered Treaties. It is also interpreted by some as a promise by the federal government to provide free health care to every aboriginal person in Canada — forever.”
