Ontario Human Rights Tribunal accommodates race bullying of lawyer


It doesn’t get any more hypocritical, ironic, and alarming than a native bringing a “whiteman” lawyer up on charges with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal for posting a disclaimer on his website to let people know he wrote essays about the ‘Indian Act’ in Canada. Lets be clear, this is not a legitimate discrimination charge, the native man filing the complaint was not discriminated against, or refused service — this is a blatant racist bullying abuse to silence a well-known author and critic of the “Indian Industry”, and to ruin his life. What else is new?  Continue reading Ontario Human Rights Tribunal accommodates race bullying of lawyer

‘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?’

‘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’

‘Moving Beyond Race’


“I believe that it’s the civic duty of Canadians, especially our elites, to promote social, political and legal arrangements that lessen race consciousness — that appeal to our higher and better instincts as expressed by our liberal values…ERBLMovingBeyondRace800x800“The arrangements comprised of the ‘Indian Act’ and all its manifestations, and now ‘Haida Nation’ and ‘Tsilhcot’in’ and all of their manifestations…are increasing negative, exclusionary, race consciousness in Canada.

“These new arrangements being foisted on Canadians emanate from exclusionary race-thinking and, as such, are retrograde and stunting to the human spirit. They contain no social scaffolding upon which to build social relations based on forward-looking, racially-inclusive, universalist, aspirational, rational thought.  Continue reading ‘Moving Beyond Race’
