‘More Threats Of Violence’


Here we have the Toronto Globe and Mail providing a platform for more threats from two of the most anti-Canadian, violence-inciting aboriginal Chiefs, who, if they weren’t protected by aboriginal privilege, would be sitting in jail cells pretending to be martyrs: 

“The ‘Treaty Alliance Against Tar {Oil} Sands Expansion’ is made up of 150 ‘indigenous’ ‘nations’ in Canada and the United States… ‘Indigenous’ ‘nations’ are supported by a…network of support from allied Canadians who understand the existential threat that humanity faces from climate change {?} and who are ready to stand up against the injustices still carried out today against ‘indigenous’ people. More than 20,000 people have signed the ‘Coast Protectors’ pledge to do whatever it takes to stop the pipeline Continue reading ‘More Threats Of Violence’

‘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.

‘Bet Anyone Ten Bucks This Works’


I have not been at my computer much the last few months, but out on the town in Vancouver a whole lot, tweeting from my phone now and then, but mostly being face-to-face speaking with people about this issue. I speak with people from every walk of life and every nationality from around the world, in every culture.

I can tell you right now that I have yet to experience even one bit of negative feedback. It’s been 100% agreement that things have gone too far, they need to be pulled back, and we all need to start talking about unity.

Not one single argument…not one. I have had this conversation now with hundreds and hundreds of people, and not even one person fought me. They all got involved, listened, and felt safe saying “yes, we all know the Chiefs get it all, and things need to change”.  Continue reading ‘Bet Anyone Ten Bucks This Works’

‘Trouble In Paradise’


“The extraordinary decision by a Haida clan to strip two of its hereditary chiefs of their titles for secretly supporting ‘Enbridge Inc.’s proposed ‘Northern Gateway’ pipeline is being closely watched by ‘First Nations’ across Canada.ERBLTroubleInParadise800x800“The rebuke, which was delivered last week in an elaborate ceremony witnessed by more than 500 people, came as the Haida ‘nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 4,635 people} rejected what they say is a growing trend by companies to enlist the support of hereditary chiefs as a way of claiming broad ‘First Nations’ support.

“On Aug. 15, members of the clan stripped Carmen Goertzen and Francis Ingram of their titles, effectively removing them as representatives of two houses, the Yahgulaanaas Janaas of Daadens, and the Iitjaaw Yaahl Naas. Goertzen, a well-known Haida artist, had held the position for 25 years. Ingram had only been appointed a year ago.  Continue reading ‘Trouble In Paradise’

“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?’

‘Defying Canada’


“Canadian aboriginal groups and their allies said…they ‘have the power’ to block proposed oil pipelines on land where they have ‘proven title’, dismissing comments by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau {and the Supreme Court} , who said no community has a veto. ERBLDefyingCanada800x800“Trudeau told ‘Reuters’…that unanimous consent is not needed for the government to approve pipeline projects to bring Canadian oil to market, even as he pledged consultation with aboriginals and environmentalists who oppose projects.  Continue reading ‘Defying Canada’

‘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’
