Wait a minute:Apart from Rachel I read only 4 letter words. I have worked for 11 Years Activism on 1 issue: Still no justice. Followed and phone tapped by C.I.C.I.S. "White Nazi Supremacists; Spat in my Face. A Death threat and a piece of phlegm, hanging from my face. Yet I:Never Retreated. From an OLD Activist to the NEW:"Please become more eloquent!" I have attended the Supreme Court as an Activist:No one listens to those who only use 4 letter words. Educate, Elucidate and pass it along. With all love and Respect.Lindee.l.

This action by the Harper government is atrcious, though not suprising on the wings of Bill C-38 this Fall. That First Nations Treaty Rights and oil companies, are in the same Act, is simply negating the traditional rights of our Aboriginal neighbours and gives the full support of BIG oil, ie the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline! I'm in solidarity with my FN friends and neighbours and quote the above statement, "Chief Allan Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation. ‘We hope...

I'm in solidarity with my FN friends and neighbours and quote the above statement, "Chief Allan Adam of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation. ‘We hope there will be a public outcry that echoes our sentiment. After all, we all share the responsibility to protect mother earth.’” How large and loud does a "public outcry" need to be?

Shame on policy without discussion. Shame on government that won't represent all canadians, regardless of political affiliation (aiming Harper right now, but that goes for all the clowns...). A majority gives you a chance to lead the debate, not ignore all the other voices. WORK TOGETHER! So frustrating...

Let them kill everything, i say. Rape mother earth and starve her children. poison the waters and choke the air out of our lungs... Then maybe just maybe they will learn that you cannot eat money.

it is our responsibilities as humans to protect the earth. this is not a proverb it is a natural law that has been handed down by creation....the earth requires advocates and lawyers specifically for our environement... water..trees...wind...rock...fire...animals...flyers...insects...families...ecosystems...

I LIVE IN ITALY...... I am not a Canadian.... I not have Health Care Coverage just like any other Canadian, but in ITALY... Unless My Coompany offers Health care Coverage for dental and eye care and prescription drugs I have to pay put of pocket just like any other Canadian Citizen... My children, parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, neices, nephews...etc... if we don't have additional health care we pay OUT OF POCKET.... I'm not sure why it should be different for anyone other Canadian...

Imagine how Greatly me and my familys health would suffer? That's all I have known.... All I will ever know... There has not been any benefits for me being just a regular old canadian citizen my entire life.... Imagine that? I live in Italy.

Ill take the liberty to answer your cut and paste with another cut and paste of an eloquent answer.>>
It saddens me to read your post, reminding me of how many Canadians have fallen for the propaganda. Like the majority of Canadians you have been misled into believing that Aboriginal people are expecting privileges they haven't earned.
The few "perks" that our First Nations peoples have, which are rapidly being taken away from them, are a piss-poor "exchange" for having taken away/ stolen...

The few "perks" that our First Nations peoples have, which are rapidly being taken away from them, are a piss-poor "exchange" for having taken away/ stolen the lands and culture that they depend on for their survival, and for having psychologically and spiritually destroyed so many of them. (See Kyla Lee Campbell's post, above, for some of the history).
It's short sighted to accuse the First Nations people of being freeloaders. Many of them DO work, very hard, but in hunting and fishing and processing their food, depending on what land they still have, and depending on rivers and ocean that neo-colonialism is again destroying.
For any of us "regular old Canadians" who have the privilege of being able to work for money, that's thanks to an industrial economy based mostly on the resources from those stolen lands, and thanks to not having been systematically mentally and spiritually abused by the colonial system, and thanks to having had a half decent education, and thanks to an economic system that has favoured non-aboriginals.

and besides that the Canadian government built this country on our trust fund from queen Victoria. It should be about 663 billion by now. They also built this country on the genocide of our people.

the government is supposed to be functioning as civil servents for the voice of the people, not lining their own pockets with their own personal agenda.
