“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 ‘First Nation’ message to Canada in this election must be clear: a Harper win will cause confrontation between ‘First Nations’ and Canada, with industry caught in the middle… a Harper win will destroy the Canadian economy.”

“I don’t like voting in the federal election, but until Anishinabe is ready to pick up a gun, voting is the lesser evil… Never underestimate the white race, they have gone all over the world, taking {what} they want from other people…”

“Do not underestimate how much voters hate ‘First Nations’.”

–Grand Chief Terrance NelsonERBLRaceBasedVoting800x800It’s election time in Canada and political parties are falling all over themselves trying to prove who will go the furthest in giving in to aboriginal demands. We’ll be doing a post on that but today, we look at the hateful electoral advice that voters of aboriginal heritage are getting from their leadership – in this case, Grand Chief Terrance Nelson, grand chief of the Southern {Manitoba} Chiefs Organization, and National vice-chair of the segregationist and violence-advocating American Indian Movement:  Continue reading ‘Race-Based Voting’
