Homicide or hijacking

"There are only two ways of dealing with the white man.

One, either you pick up a gun, or you stand between the white man and his money," Terry Nelson of the Roseau River First Nation told CTV Newsnet's Mike Duffy Live on Tuesday.
Might be time to circle the wagons, Zeke.


UPDATE: So who exactly, is Chief Terry Nelson?

Turns out he's an anti-semitic buddy of David Ahenakew...
Not long after, Ahenakew’s spurious, hateful remarks were supported and defended by Terry Nelson, a chief from Roseau River in southern Manitoba.

When pressured to apologize for his racist remarks, he placed the blame “on the fact that I (he) had written his controversial letter at 1 a.m. and did not spend enough time reviewing it properly.”
Which explains why he's CTV's go-to guy on aboriginal affairs... it's not like they want someone who might consider both sides of an argument.
