I agree. There is a lot of people without common sense.

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. 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. 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.

If Preston Manning could start a "Reform Party" back in the 'nineties, why not the aboriginal people of Canada and the US? This may seem farfetched, but I believe the good book, the Bible, says not to despise small beginnings, because it will surely gather strength, then watch out, aboriginal people of Canada and the US will one day be a force to reckon with. We just got to start somewhere. Look at the black people when they were thought of as sub humans; some of them are in congress and...

We just got to start somewhere. Look at the black people when they were thought of as sub humans; some of them are in congress and look at Obama! Instead of complaining, let's do something about it according to the present system of voting because things don't change overnight, but once we get into the government, we can initiate changes for the better.

The only solution I see for the foreseeable future is form our own national political party for native people only and get our foothold in the parliament through the election process. I believe there a lot of non-native people who will support a national native people political party because they themselves are tired of the under-the-surface racial apartheid that exists among Canadians. Even the foreign people - Philippinos, Chinese, etc... - look down their nose at native people, but real...

I believe there a lot of non-native people who will support a national native people political party because they themselves are tired of the under-the-surface racial apartheid that exists among Canadians. Even the foreign people - Philippinos, Chinese, etc... - look down their nose at native people, but real friendly towards white people; that's disgusting because they're treated like dirt in their own country by the white people, the same way we are in own native land. I say we have to form our own national party and get voted into parliament and start there because I hear a lot of native people say they don't want to vote or support the present political parties, but if we start our own? If all native people vote for this party, things will get started. Got to start somewhere even if we start small.

I'm a white who is appalled by what happened to your people when Europeans came to North America. I would love to see you flourishing, living as shining examples of a nation that respects the land and all the creatures. I do believe you have much to teach whites in this regard. I don't know very much about all the problems you face but understand that they're wide ranging. It seems to me though that if you are to get more respect and take your rightful place in a society that is...

I'm a white who is appalled by what happened to your people when Europeans came to North America. I would love to see you flourishing, living as shining examples of a nation that respects the land and all the creatures. I do believe you have much to teach whites in this regard. I don't know very much about all the problems you face but understand that they're wide ranging. It seems to me though that if you are to get more respect and take your rightful place in a society that is prejudiced against you, you will have to show us your strengths. I'm sure there are many of you who are wonderful, creative thinkers, artists and indeed all the normal people that make up your society. I hope that we all get to know you better. I am glad that you're standing up for your rights and pray that you will be successful in your negotiations. I pray that we can live side by side, respecting one another and this beautiful land which is our home.

We cannot change others, we can only change ourselves and how we react to injustice.
