Before we can address issues like discrimination, abuses on different levels, we have to address how divided we are as people. The government did a good job of segregating us a few hundred years ago, now we need to find the balance in who we are ,and how we all can fight on these big issues together!

When you look back into the past meaning (time in memorial A.D), and when you read the bible, they discriminate Jesus in every way. All I am saying is ; that there is nothing we as people can do about discrimination, because discrimination has been there since time in memorial, but we can teach our children,and grandchildren to love all races of people. If you can do that then we can erase discrimination., and many other things that go wrong in this world.

All discrimination with all races need to end. Racism is all about fear, bad pride etc. I am with you!

Dawn, the problems you speak of like addiction etc, are directly caused by the displacement and humiliation of a sovereign people. We can't turn back time, the crime was committed, but we can change the future. Rise up, demand justice and well deserved help.

Not just here in Canada -- worldwide. In Africa, the Masaai are losing their lands to the UAE of Dubai. Their land has been sold by the corrupt government to accommodate the big game hunting industry. The Masaai will be put on land set aside for them -- reservations. In Brazil, Belo Monte dams are being constructed to provide electricity for an energy glutton the country has become. Thousands of Amazonian Indians will be displaced.

Not just here in Canada -- worldwide. In Africa, the Masaai are losing their lands to the UAE of Dubai.

In Brazil, Belo Monte dams are being constructed to provide electricity for an energy glutton the country has become. Thousands of Amazonian Indians will be displaced. In northeastern Peru, oil companies, largely a Canadian owned one, will finally meet with local indigenous peoples, again, to put them on 5 designated reservations. There are many more situations such as these, and in each, there is a common denominator -- greed and corrupt governments. South Africa, as well, has allowed the rise of canned hunt farms where anyone with bloodlust can go and shoot an animal in an enclosure, then pose with their trophy. Ironically, Germany is using an increasing amount of solar and wind power. Most of the energy they produced last year came from solar panels! If Germany can do this, why can't sunsoaked Alberta, or Brazil?

We're not immigrants to this country. We own this land. The Canadian state has to honour, respect and uphold the inherent, Aboriginal and treaty rights of First Nations.
