‘More Mohawk Discrimination…’


“If a Mohawk couple adopts a child who is not ‘indigenous’, the adoptive parents have committed an “offence”, according to a new law in Kahnawake, Que. ERBLMoreMohawkDiscrimination800x800“The adoptive parents will lose their rights as Kahnawake Mohawks — which include voting here, living here, being buried here.

“Those same parents, who sacrificed, changed their lives and reached out to make something so delicate as an adoption happen, will pay for that decision dearly, according to a new amendment to the Kahnawake membership law…

“Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Continue reading ‘More Mohawk Discrimination…’

‘Dysfunctional Governance: Yukon’s Liard ‘First Nation’


“The Liard ‘First Nation’, {a ‘nation’ of 1,152 people} based in Watson Lake, Yukon, is asking the Federal Court to restore its control of the funding it receives from the federal government.ERBLDysfunctional Governance--Yukon's Liard ‘First Nation’800x800“The ‘First Nation’ has been under third-party management for two years. The condition was imposed after it fell more than $700,000 in debt and failed to abide by the ‘Federal ‘First Nations’ Transparency Act’. 

“The third-party manager is an aboriginal-owned B.C. company called ‘Ganhada’. The firm said it does not comment on cases, but its relations with the Liard ‘First Nation’ have been rocky. When it was first appointed, it took seven months for Ganhada’s workers to gain access to ‘First Nation’ offices in Watson Lake.  Continue reading ‘Dysfunctional Governance: Yukon’s Liard ‘First Nation’

‘The Myth of Aboriginal Environmental Stewardship’


“Nothing is so pernicious as the profoundly-racist notion that somehow ‘indigenous peoples’ are genetically endowed with a special relationship, a spiritual kinship, with nature that makes them superior caretakers of the land.”

“…why is so much weight afforded to what is essentially raw, localized experience? If you strip away its spiritual accoutrements, you’re left with little more than the same wisdom that allows a fisherman to gauge impending weather, or derive crude conclusions on the state of fish stocks.”

“Surely, this is common sense. A person of any race or background can, at least in theory, be equally capable of protecting or destroying the environment.”

‘Is Canada Coming Unravelled?’


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?’

‘Race Based Taxation in Ontario’


The fiscally-challenged Ontario government has for some time provided an OFF-RESERVE (anywhere in the province) provincial sales tax exemption for anyone with an aboriginal ‘status’ card (No figures are available on what this annually costs the Ontario government and taxpayers). ERBLRaceBasedTaxationInOntario800x800From an Ontario Ministry of Finance page:

‘Ontario ‘First Nations’ Point-of-Sale Exemptions’

“The Ministry of Finance is experiencing an increase in the number and size of refund applications related to the Ontario HST Refund for ‘First Nations’. Processing of these refund applications is taking longer than the ministry’s service standard of 40 business days. Thank you for your patience as we continue to process these claims in an expedient manner.” Continue reading ‘Race Based Taxation in Ontario’

‘Monitoring of billions pledged to aboriginals is lacking’

“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has gone to great lengths to foster a warm relationship with aboriginals. He has promised to fulfil every recommendation of the ‘Truth and Reconciliation Commission’, including an inquiry into murdered and missing aboriginal women which is expected to cost $40 million alone.

“More recently, aboriginals were among the big winners in the government’s first budget. They’ve been promised an extra $8.4 billion over five years for infrastructure, education and training.

“That’s all well and good, but extra injections of taxpayers’ money should be accompanied by oversight, so Canadians can be certain the funds are being properly spent.  Continue reading ‘Stop The Fraud!’

‘Aboriginals Must Join Canadian Mosaic’


“Not that long ago, it was a common belief that people from aboriginal communities would, over time, merge with the general population. As employment skills were acquired, people would leave reserves and compete for jobs and other benefits with other Canadians.

“That was certainly the belief of the men who wrote the ‘Indian Act’. Reserves, and the demeaning classification of aboriginal people as wards, were to come to a natural end when aboriginal people became a part of the modern community. ERBLAboriginalsMustJoinCanadian Mosaic800x800“That kind of thinking is now considered passé — almost quaint. It is now widely believed {at least in our universities} that aboriginal people should remain separate from the general population in self-governing tribal ‘nations’, where they are subject to a separate set of rights and benefits determined at birth by the race of their parents. These tribal ‘nations’ are envisioned as having their own economies. The Indian Act, or something similar, would forever treat aboriginal people differently from other Canadians.  Continue reading ‘Aboriginals Must Join Canadian Mosaic’

‘Supreme Court Dividing Canadians’


The Canadian taxpayers are now expected to pay for even more ‘dependents’, land claims, etc., as Canadian lawyers continue to divide Canadians into two separate racial and legal categories: ERBLSupremeCourtDividingCanadians800x800“The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that tens of thousands {600,000} of Métis and non-status Indians are the responsibility of the federal government, ending a 17-year court battle.

“In a unanimous ruling that may serve now as a starting point for those pursuing land claims and additional government services, the court held that non-status Indians and Métis are considered “Indians” under ‘section 91(24)’ of the ‘1867 Constitutional Act’.  Continue reading ‘Supreme Court Dividing Canadians’

‘Fire Kills On Reserves’


This happens far too often on aboriginal Reserves (only last month, 9 deaths at Pikangikum).

‘Police Target Biker-Mohawk Criminal Organization’

“The ‘Surete du Quebec’ say nearly 60 arrests were made Wednesday morning, targeting biker gangs and what they’re calling ‘aboriginal organized crime outfits’, on charges of selling contraband tobacco, drugs, and money laundering. ERBLMohawkTobaccoAndOrganizedCrime800x800“Raids took place in residences and shops, mainly located in the greater Montreal, the Laurentians, Lanaudiere, Monteregie, and on Kahnawake in Quebec, as well as on Six Nations in Ontario.  Continue reading ‘Mohawks Using Race Based Law To Shelter Organized Crime’
