Aboriginal Peoples in Canada
The way the HarperCONS and their bought and paid for MSM are portraying the Attawapiskat situation is a travesty. Blaming the victim, much like what society and the justice system once did to rape victims, when you yourself are much to blame, is unconscionable.
The following link offers a statistically backed researched analysis of the true picture of the plight of the FNs people in our land. It is a section out of a book by Mel Hurtig ‘The Truth About Canada’ that should be required reading by every Canadian. Some of it is truly appalling, like the section on Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.
“The shameful neglect of appalling, disgraceful, grinding poverty.”
Like the book says, “Many of us just don’t give a damn.” Harper, who refuses to even visit Attawapiskat and who killed the Kelowna Accord, is certainly at the top of that list. SHAME on him!
We, the great mass of the people think only of the love we have for our land, we do love the land where we were brought up. We will never let our hold to this land go, to let it go it will be like throwing away (our) mother that gave (us) birth.
