‘The Myths of Caledonia’


“The ownership history of Six Nations lands in Ontario has been ignored, as has the legal basis of the Six Nations claim to those lands. It’s time for the politically-incorrect truth to be told. In short, THE SIX NATIONS HAVE NO LEGAL RIGHTS TO THE LAND IN QUESTION, AND HAVE HAD NONE FOR OVER A CENTURY.   ERBLTheMythsOfCaledonia800x800“They have never had any rights to land in Ontario by virtue of aboriginal title or by treaty. For a tract of land along the Grand River, they obtained in 1784 merely AN OCCUPANCY PERMIT from British colonial Governor Frederick Haldimand, THAT ENDURED ONLY AT THE PLEASURE OF THE CROWN.  

“After 1784, the Six Nations surrendered to the Crown various portions of the Grand River tract and by the middle of the 19th century, all that remained was the land contained in the current Six Nations reserve, south of Brantford. That is a summary of their legal rights.  Continue reading ‘The Myths of Caledonia’

‘Appeasing Racial Nationalists’


“It is fashionable to blame the myriad of social pathologies rampant on many reserves on colonialism, residential schools, poverty, etc., but the real cause is never admitted: segregation.

“In demonizing assimilation (as if the virtue of social integration after Martin Luther King Jr wasn’t obvious), aboriginal nationalists legitimized segregation.”

–Michael MelansonERBLAppeasingRacialNationalists800x800I dislike nationalists, and racial and ethnic nationalists most of all. Aboriginal nationalism is racial nationalism and Derek Nepinak has been trying to advance that for some time now. He lives in a suburban home with a salary paid by the Government of Canada and is supposed to represent Manitoba’s chiefs (64 or so). No one asks Nepinak what nationhood for a remote reserve like Pauingassi actually means and it’s clear below that Nepinak hasn’t thought out what aboriginal “nationhood’ means in general. It’s like fertilizing the lawn with gasoline before a lightning storm.  Continue reading ‘Appeasing Racial Nationalists’

‘NO GO’ Zones On B.C. Reserves’


“B.C.’s representative for children and youth, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, said she estimates there are about 25 of B.C.’s 203 ‘First Nations’ who have so-called ‘no-go zones’ on their reserves, in attempts to prevent visits from social workers.”ERBLNoGoZonesOnB.C.Reserves800x800FB‘Social workers left girl at risk in ‘no-go zone’

“A vulnerable aboriginal girl was left at risk because social workers were afraid to visit a ‘First Nations’ reserve where they had been previously threatened with a knife and a gun…

“The 14-year-old girl lived with a sometimes-violent, mentally ill mother, suffered physical and emotional abuse, and was likely sexually assaulted by at least two people in her community before taking her own life…the report said.

“B.C.’s representative for children and youth, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, said the social workers {afraid of aboriginal violence} effectively turned the reserve into a “no-go zone” that prevented them from protecting children in dangerous situations. Continue reading ‘NO GO’ Zones On B.C. Reserves’

‘Ipperwash: Governments Cave In To Bullying’


“DND {Department of National Defence}, through its failure to remove illegal occupiers, failure to permit the law to be upheld, failure to protect its boundaries, failure to ensure safety at one of its military facilities, and ultimate retreat from and desertion of Camp Ipperwash in the middle of the night, has created a situation that led to the death of at least one individual, the takeover and destruction of public property, terrorizing of a municipality, destruction of property values, and the tearing apart of a community and its way of life.” 

–Kenneth Williams, Chief Administrative Officer, Town of Bosanquet, Ont.

ERBLIpperwash-GovernmentsCaveInToBullying800x800Once upon a time, the Canadian government purchased aboriginal reserve land for a military base. Forty years later, they paid for it again, just so there’d be no hard feelings. Now, the government is giving back the land for free and throwing in $90 million, to boot – and the Province of Ontario is tossing in a free provincial park. I guess they are trying to make everybody happy…

Well, the aboriginals aren’t happy—they’re fighting over who gets what from the ‘unfair’ and ‘inadequate’ gift; I’m certainly not happy with this irresponsible giveaway of public resources, and the rewarding of what was essentially ‘terrorism’; and I guarantee that you, dear reader, are not going to be happy the further you go in this post. Welcome to yet another tale of aboriginal intimidation and government weakness overturning written contracts and common sense in our race-divided land: Continue reading ‘Ipperwash: Governments Cave In To Bullying’
