‘End the Charade’

‘Cha·rade’ (Shəˈrād): “An absurd pretense intended to create a pleasant or respectable appearance.” and “Something that is done in order to pretend something is true, when it really isn’t.”

“The drums continue to beat hard all over North America for “Native Rights”, a code-phrase for ambitions to claim vast tracts of land — up to 85% of some provinces — ‘natives’ say was wrongly appropriated. Unless it is stopped, millions of us will soon have new ‘landlords’… Many of these claims are being settled administratively, or in quiet courtrooms out of the public eye. No public consultation. No means of protest.  Continue reading ‘End the Charade’

‘Race-Based Control Of Resources?’

‘One in six ‘First Nations’ vows to block pipelines; all claim veto power’

“More than 130 ‘First Nations’ {leaders} are dead-set against pipeline and energy development, Assembly of ‘First Nations’ National Chief Perry Bellegarde said Tuesday.

{Would the tribal members also be opposed if it meant no more electricity for their reserves? Where do they expect the power to come from, without any ‘energy development’?}

The rest are demanding an ‘absolute veto’ over any proposed developments before they’ll even begin negotiations with governments and energy companies. And if that slows Canadian energy development to a crawl, so be it.  Continue reading ‘Race-Based Control Of Resources?’

‘Embracing the U.N. At Canada’s Expense’

“A day after the Canadian government said it was fully endorsing the UN ‘Declaration on the Rights of ‘Indigenous’ Peoples’ (UNDR‘I’P), Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly ‘First Nations’ {a ‘nation’ of 220 people} and Chief Lynette Tsakoza of the Prophet River ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 249 people} said in a joint news release the move was ‘a hypocrisy in the making’.” 

“Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould also delivered a speech on the opening day at the ‘UN Permanent Forum’ WHICH CALLED ON THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TO MAKE ‘INDIGENOUS PEOPLES’ THE FOCUS OF THIS CENTURY.” ERBLEmbracingtheU.N.atCanada'sExpense800x800“‘Indigenous’ Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said…Canada would fully embrace the UN ‘Declaration on the Rights of ‘Indigenous’ Peoples’ (UNDR‘I’P) and remove its “permanent objector status” to the document.  Continue reading ‘Embracing the U.N.

‘This Election, Vote Freedom’

WHO IS WORKING FOR AVERAGE CANADIANS ANYMORE? ERBLThisElectionVoteFreedom800x800I admit I’m a bit depressed about voting in Canada’s 2015 election. I wish there was a visionary who didn’t take no for an answer when it comes to Canadian values — which BTW is not blind tolerance, so that anyone with resentments, hatred, racism, and fascist aggressions can overrule, override or overstep their boundaries with OUR DEMOCRACTICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT. It’s democracy and freedom itself we all need to not only vote for, but to fight for. It’s our turn and we need a leader who can stand with us in building this nation as a cohesive entity, not to pander to special interest groups at every hypocritical turn, which only stands to corrode, demoralize and divide our nation.

ALL CANDIDATES NEED TO STOP PLAYING DRESS-UP, IGNORING & PRETENDING RACE LAWS AREN’T A VERY REAL THREAT TO OUR NATION.  Continue reading ‘This Election, Vote Freedom’

‘Playing Both Sides Of The Fence’

What constitutes a ‘traitor’? Here’s a northern Ontario chief who accepts the Canadian peoples’ money, uses aboriginal industry lawyers in Canadian courts to assert his ‘rights’ – but denies that he, or his people, are Canadians and insists that the Canadian and Ontario governments are ‘foreign’ and have no authority over his people, or the lands his ancestors surrendered via Treaty.

Now, this hypocrite has decided to “allow” polling stations on the reserves for the federal election, not only giving the Canadian citizens who reside there the chance to exercise their RIGHT to vote, but also tacitly admitting that they ARE, in fact, Canadians…

ERBLPlayingBothSidesOfTheFence800x800“A ‘First Nation’ in northeastern Ontario is welcoming polling stations for the first time in years, opting to give residents the chance to vote tactically, even though the community’s leader says they see the current federal campaign as a “foreign election.” Continue reading ‘Playing Both Sides Of The Fence’

Why End Race Based Law?

Why End Race Based Law?

Canadians believe in equality, that all men and women have equal rights. We have determined that all shall be treated fairly and that no one shall be shut out of Canadian life, and especially that no one shall be shut out because of his, or her, race.

Only a policy based on this belief can enable Canadians of ‘Indian’ heritage to realize their needs and aspirations.

Native Indian relations with other Canadians began with special treatment by government and society, and special treatment has been the rule since Europeans first settled in Canada. Special treatment has made of the Indians a community disadvantaged and apart.
Obviously, the course of history must be changed.

The changes proposed recognize the simple reality that the separate legal status of Indians, and the policies which have flowed from it, have kept the Indian people apart from, and behind, other Canadians. The treatment resulting from their different status has often been worse, sometimes equal and occasionally better than that accorded to their fellow citizens.
What matters is that it has been different.

We can no longer perpetuate the separation of Canadians.
Now is the time to change.  Continue reading Why End Race Based Law?
