“IF they were forced! The article doesn't say that, yet my opponents on this thread automatically assume that it was. And it's irresponsible to start imagining scenarios around this murder based simply on cultural difference, but that is exactly the kind of speculation that HuffPo is encouraging by including that as-yet-irrelevant detail.”

“You are right , we need to include indigenous people in society instead of putting them on reserves . They will then have the same self respect as the rest of us .”

Ruth McVeigh on Mar 7, 2014 at 22:56:51

“Those reserves are their property, their inheritance (which in many cases, we've either destroyed or made useless for their way of life). In many cases, that is where they want to be -- but not in the conditions we have imposed on them by ruining their water supply and cheating them out of an equivalent quality of education, etc.”

Will Webster on Mar 6, 2014 at 17:12:05

“John C. Whey do I suspect you're calling for assimilation?
Assimilation is dissolution. How can a people be respected if they no longer exist.
First Nations have every right to pursue their own independence and status, and they should not have to be "included" in order for that to be respected. It is up to First Nations to decide whether they want to be included or not, and if they decide on be excluded, they deserve respect anyway. Respect should not have conditions put on it. Either we respect First Nations or we don't. It doesn't matter if they live separately or not.”

JUSTBAKERS135 on Mar 6, 2014 at 12:53:27

“While I would agree, there are currently many, many successful indigenous people in cities - 50% of the indigenous population.

The 50% on the reserves, are not there because we won't let them leave, they don't have the skills to move out…we need to help them, but prepare for the backlash that their culture is being absorbed.”

Punned It on Mar 6, 2014 at 12:04:52

“We do not need to do anything to, or for, indigenous people. Many might prefer to stay on reserves; some may choose to leave, but it is not up to us. The only thing we need to do is acknowledge that they are people, and fully equal. Give them the basic right of every free human being; to choose their path in life.

We need to listen, then act on what we have learned. We need to recognize that these are sovereign nations, and live up to the treaties we signed with them, or renegotiate those agreements, in good faith this time.

People, our people, our neighbours, are being murdered, and our government thinks that it's not a problem. Oh Canada....”
