Too many chiefs...

Not enough research.

Discussions in the media and among the public are tainted by the general sentiment that "the Indians have been treated badly," as if all Indians have been treated the same, and are equally deserving, and have identical histories, and have identical legal claims.

UPDATE: Unhappy Anniversary

Step aside McShifty... let's have some leadership...
“There's a tool (Mr. McGuinty) has in his toolbox — it's called being the Premier of Ontario and acting like a premier,” Mr. Tory said.

“He should say to these people that it doesn't matter who you are, it doesn't matter what your claim is. We have certain ways of resolving disputes in our society.”

Well, you could end your pain by growing up.

Six Nations presented evidence this week.

Harper refuses to acknowledge or evaluate the evidence.

Instead, he is playing politics.
Go figure ... give a man a chance to be Prime Minister and what does he do?
He cheats and lies and dishonours the Constitution.
Nice example.

It's the lawless thugs that are acting like a bunch of grade three's with a substitute teacher ( or is that a substitute premier).

My family emigrated here in 1820, absolutely nothing but trees to greet them. I still have the land grant given to my 5th
g-grandfather. Maybe i'll go sit on the current owners land and see what happens ... I doubt the OPP would treat me in the same fashion !

no, no... what you do is dig a trench across the end of his driveway with a backhoe and block him from coming or going. you stay there until he gives up his home.

don't worry about money... dalton mcguinty will pay for it all.

Neo... the grant does say his heirs and successors forever ... I say it's time for McGutless to repatriate my homeland ! It's MY birthright !
