ollaimh BS: Get Harper Out - Petition (Canada) (323* d) RE: BS: Get Harper Out - Petition (Canada) 25 Jan 13


the system of government for band councils imposes colonial "elected" native chiefs to get rid of traditional chiefs. traditional chiefs don't do what they are told by the government, while those imposed by the indian act usually do. especially since they are elected dictators rather than just one vote on council. with department of indian affiars spobsorship most ciiefs do what the government wants and have no effective limits on monetary abuse, that aghain serves the government as when a chief raises embarrasing issues then the government attacvks them for monetary inproprities that the goovernment set up in the first place. the band councils need a major over hai=ul in their constitutions but the federal governmant will not let that happen as they usually win in the game of otiing elected chiefs against traditional leader and creating corruption. the end game is losing because the supremem court of canada has again and again ruled in favour of native rights. they believe in the rule of law and can't keep up the inequality before the law forever. but its a slow process, as natives have to go to the supreme court every time to get rights. settlements almost never happen without a the highest court ruling. the fact that those ruling have almost always gone against the government sinc3 we extended legal rights to natives in the 1970's show that the canadian government has bargained in bad faith throughout.

they are stalling on the ultimate world wide conformation that this was genocide. each government want to leave that for the next. only paul martin was willing to bring in a comprehensive settlement, starting with the kelowna accord,and to fund that accord to the tune of six billion dollars and canadian voted against the only comprehensive attempt at justice in canadian history.

we can never tell out children we tried to solve these probblems. paul martin can say he tired but the rest of youn out there sat on your hands and voted for a 2 % sales tax reduction and the largest deficits in canadian history rather than fiscal responsibility and historic social justice.

the nit picking agains spence is just more mud slinging to cover up and spin that cnada is founded on genocidal injustice(like america and the uk)
