‘Not Even A Slap On The Wrist’

So, police determine that an ‘anti-pipeline’ protest trailer is illegally parked in front of an oil storage facility. Protesters object to an already-approved expansion of a 60-year-old pipeline. Police leave the trailer alone for 2 months before finally arriving to enforce the law. A protester climbs on top of the trailer to stop it from being towed away. It works. The police go away {!?!}…

The police come back the next day and crowbar their way into the trailer, where they arrest 2 protesters. They are at the station for less than an hour when they are released — without charges! {Starting to sound like Caledonia…}

Back at the trailer, police negotiate with the roof-sitter and end up promising that if she comes down, they won’t enforce the law and tow the trailer away {!?!}. She agrees and comes down. Police go away…

Don’t companies deserve law enforcement for the amount of tax revenue that they generate? How are police going to deal with the many protests and illegal blockades that are promised by pipeline opponents?

Yet another example of unequal law enforcement – and unequal law – under Race Based Law… Continue reading ‘Not Even A Slap On The Wrist’

‘Pipe Fiction’

Canadian media continues to give widespread exposure to unelected, unaccountable, misleading aboriginal race activists, further exacerbating an unhealthy racist discourse in Canada: 

“From Standing Rock to The Assembly of ‘First Nations’…opposition to pipelines has become a rallying cry, and a hill many political leaders have staked out as their preferred location for death…

“…A few years ago, I visited the Unist’ot’en camp in British Columbia. This camp is located west of Prince George, on the proposed right-of-way of the ‘Gateway’ pipeline. I was impressed by the resolve and commitment of the people who had set up camp and remained for several years. They were creating a permanent settlement within ‘their’ unceded territory.

He conveniently omits the fact that the protest camp is at least partly funded by Vancouver Lower Mainland anarchists and environmentalists, was initially set up to oppose a natural gas pipeline that is also coming through that area, and is NOT supported by the local elected tribal chiefs..:  Continue reading ‘Pipe Fiction’

‘Caving In To Bullying’

Aboriginal pressure has bullied a federal Cabinet Minister into backing away from his support for enforcing the law:

‘Carr ‘sorry’ for saying military could be called in against pipeline protesters’ 

“Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr said Tuesday he didn’t choose his words carefully when saying the military could be called in against protesters fighting the expansion of two pipelines the Trudeau government approved last week.

“Carr told reporters in Ottawa he regrets the comments he made Thursday to room of business leaders in Edmonton.  Continue reading ‘Caving In To Bullying’

‘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…

“Dozens of people packed a free, public event {Paid for and initiated by U.S.-organized and funded ‘Leadnow’.

{A small minority of Chiefs from across North America FLEW into Montreal and Vancouver for the ‘treaty’ signing. But none of them pledged to stop using oil or oil-based products. And they all still want money from the rest of us, while offering to contribute exactly nothing…}

‘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 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’

‘Dealing With Dysfunction’

Instead of accommodating race laws, it would be far better for everyone if industry would release statements to the Canadian people on the ridiculousness of this system, and the limited economic future that awaits Canada if we continue down this path.

ERBLDealingWithDysfunction800x800

The ‘Consult and Accommodate’ dictum is nothing but structural racism and it is historically and legally unjust, based on erroneous rulings from a Supreme Court that puts the earnings of the legal profession ahead of the welfare and future of Canada. It forces companies to deal with {‘bribe’} numerous Band councils, the majority of which are, at worst, dysfunctional, and at best, simply corrupt.

Both the Chief in the story below, and the Supreme Court, need a quick refresher course on the Treaties {in this case, the ‘James Bay Treaty’}, which they – and you – can find immediately after this news story:  Continue reading ‘Dealing With Dysfunction’
