Gotta stand up now... We had enough of all the Lies in Big Corperations and especially the Federals..
Treaty Settlements in BC I was shocked to learn recently that BC is the only Canadian province that has not negotiated treaty settlements with our Aboriginal Peoples. There is also injustice amongst aboriginal within their bands as well...this must also change so that all natives have equal opportunity.
Mainly to expose the wrongs done to these people and many other Indigenous peoples of north america. I have found that the majority of the public have no idea what goes on in Indian Country. They have no idea the horrors that went on as recently as a few decades ago. A handful of the public doesn't want to hear it but people can no longer just sit and be quiet (hence Idle No More) and must speak up now.

Mainly to expose the wrongs done to these people and many other Indigenous peoples of north america. I have found that the majority of the public have no idea what goes on in Indian Country. They have no idea the horrors that went on as recently as a few decades ago. A handful of the public doesn't want to hear it but people can no longer just sit and be quiet (hence Idle No More) and must speak up now. Speak up, stand up to the bullies and see that it was only fear you were afraid of the whole time. You have power and human rights behind you. You are now allowed to speak up for you and those before you. Be afraid no more. Idle No More.
As someone entitled to Canadian citizenship, I believe that it is the duty of anyone currently benefiting from living in Canada and the US to support the rights and freedoms of the indigenous nations of Native Canadian/North American Indians. After all, they have been there long before anyone else, and they have a right to live in peace and freedom from fear of poverty and subjugation.

My family was racist against the fact that my grandmother had a child with a native man, and my great, great, great, grandfather was murdered by the government for leading the Red River Rebellion. His name was Louis David Riel, and I wouldn't want his death to be in vain. These cowards that hide behind there desks counting the money they stole, who are protected by the police, will one day learn there lesson.
