“The history of the human race tells us we all descend from the evolution of the species in Africa. From there humans began to spread all over the World. Since North America was virtually landlocked, humans in North America are known to have come from the Continent of Asia via what is now known as Alaska. They are not a separate race. Only the (possibly) earliest occupiers. It is no more theirs as it is ours.”
“So you're saying that FN pay all their own health care costs? Ie: medical, dental, drugs etc? I doubt that.
I would also mention that a friend of mine's daughter, who is an off-reserve native, has had all of her university education paid for & was even given "spending money".
This is while my 8th generation Canadian, daughter now has a debt of $29,000+ for her university education! Now that's bull!”
“There were some who endured the abuse and even continued an academic course, going on to university and becoming doctors and lawyers. However, those who did were not allowed to return to their reserve or even call themselves "Indian". They could not be mentors to their own extended families.
This must have thrown a damper on anyone who seriously wanted to pursue an education; having to leave your community for ever.
And that's about as positive as things got.
But, to anyone who wants to really know the history, you can. Though it's not pretty.”
“The media is not allowed into lots of places. What's the big deal about this inconsequential reserve.
Why don't they cover more important stories, like bill c45.”

“Filthy fascie, you are very niave.
The reserve is not "public property".
Only the owner of the press have freedom of the press. And they use that freedom to lie and obfuscate on behalf of the government.”

“The press was kicked off the reserve, not barred from council chambers. They were escorted from a hotel to the airport. I'm not sure why I'm having to elaborate for you. Nowhere in the free world do governments expel the press from publically accessible spaces. In the provincial and federal parliament the press are even provided their own office space.
And why does it matter if they're showing sufficient attention to bill c45 for your liking exactly? Do we grant freedom only to the press that we like and not to those who report on things we don't like?
