Turncoat Dipper & infamous media whore...

...makes obligatory photo-op at "Occupy James Bay"...
show me the moneyI'm confused... what exactly did these folks do to make ends meet before Big Gov handed them that 90 million dollar taxpayer-funded meal ticket?

FROM THE COMMENTS:

"Bob Rae is the new "Grey Owl", pining for a life and culture that never really existed except in the minds of paternalistic apologists. If I recall my history, it was feast or famine - and very little in between. It's way past time for the original people of Canada to join us and live successful, healthy lives in places more suitable to accommodate life."
And...
"We need to send in a third party manager to audit the LPC books and discover where the $40 million ADSCAM dollars went, bet Chief Bob won't be too willing to let the third party manager come in either."

THANK YOU COMMENT MODERATION:
"Dick Cheyne(sic) doesn't even have a heart anymore he has an electric heart without a pulse. Literally he's a Zombie, Dick Cheney is an anti-christ Zombie he's got no heartbeat, think of that, is that not in the scriptures? A man who walks with no heartbeat and feels no remorse for the millions of deaths."
I'll spare you the rest of that particular quasi-coherent, pseudo-religious rant.

You go back to occupying mom's basement, nonny.

And then, of course, there's...
"The natives were not this way when the Europeans landed, so it isn't like it's part of their culture, as you would like us to believe."
What you fail to mention, nonny... is what they were like... travelling bands of near stone-age scavengers, continually preying on each other... capturing women & children for slaves & practicing cannabalism as the mood took them.

There was very little romance or nobility associated with their lifestyle. Kevin Costner aside, a subsistence hunter-gatherer, in so many ways, is simply the middle age equivalent of a bunch of vagrants tunneling into the urban landscape.

The choice here, is to continue to live in a feudal reservation system, in abject poverty, addiction & misery... or, like so many, for example, in the Asian community, to assimilate and prosper.

Oh yeah, one more thing, nonny. Your comments have a much better chance of being published when they're not bookended by posting multiple instances of "Heil Harper" in the comments here. Twisting my words will also get you an automatic exclusion.

You wanna demonstrate your ignorance, take it back on over to Rabble.ca... they'll love you longtime.

They fished, hunted, and logged, all of which they are either restricted or not allowed to do. I don't know what they are allowed to do on their own reserve, but if you know anything about native history, they never stayed in one spot to do these for good reasons. I expect you'll scoff at this, as you seem more interested in headline stuff like the toronto sun, but if we are to help the situation get better, perhaps some real changes need to take place. Also, keep in mind that though 90 million sounds like a large number, that's actually half what non natives get for infrastructure, healthcare, education etc. (which is what the 90 million is mainly for). Unfortunately it's been years of neglect, neglect on finding a better solution not JUST more money by this government, and all the previous governments before them. It isn't just, Harper's fault. But of course playing politics is so very important. For everyone's sake, I hope this government can improve things beyond, simply giving more money.

My Great Grandfather also left Ireland and settled in New Brunswick.I have 4 children,3 girls and 1 boy,and they are all hard working people.My youngest is 38 and he graduated from high school,but no college,and he worked day and he laboured in a fish plant,working sometimes 15 hrs a day.He went from labourer to supervisor to production manager to Plant manager due to being an honest,faithful,dependable,harding working person,and I'm very proud of him.Naturally,he's conservative.Gerald

Its way past time for the original people of Canada to join us and live successful, healthy lives in places more suitable to accomodate life. Living on a reserve should be a lifestyle choice not a desperate gulag. Cheers.

Is he going there to hand over the $40 mill the libs stole from taxpayers?

Pissedoff said...

Mind you I suppose it is appropriate that the leader of the third rate party visits Canada's third world as they created it, but want to deflect from that.

Good Question HOM.

Did you see the large tv and the big fridge and microwave yet accordin to the opposition coalition party the natives have no access to electricity and water and food.

$90million could not have simply vanish into thin air.

Why would the Chief stop or prevent a government official to enter the reserve to investigate the whereabouts of the 90million dollars?

From now on, everytime the chiefs calls for somethings like toothpaste we send them toothpaste or soap or bread or whatever.

Bob Rae went there to sell the liberal brand. But do the natives know that the liberals took 40million dollars and lost it somewhere?

"skinny says... They fished, hunted, and logged, all of which they are either restricted or not allowed to do."

but, of course skins... anytime someone mentions aboriginal communities anywhere in canada... the first thing that comes to mind is how "law-abiding" they are...

-- Pikangikum First Nation -- The crowd followed the police to their residence trailer, where two off-duty constables were asleep. Over shouts of “Burn it with them inside!”

“Police then walked approximately two kilometres to the airport carrying their personal belongings and being followed by approximately 200 people, vehicles and [a] front-end loader.”

Unbelievably, this isn’t the first time the Pikangikum band has sent the entire detachment into exile, but rather the second time in little more than a year.


they're such good citizens, they have their own special prisons...

"the minimum-security prison, Kwikwexwelhp Healing Village, which puts aboriginal spirituality at the centre of its rehabilitation program."

sadly, though... they can't even be bothered to keep their own children safe...

"The rate of deaths from injuries is 3 to 4 times higher for Aboriginal children than for other children in Canada."

and geez... let's talk aboriginal icons... like, you know... David Ahenakew or sainted Donald Marshall.

how about the six year long siege of caledonia... where aboriginals burned down a hydro substation and threw a flaming automobile over a bridge onto the rail line?

or shawn brant closing down the trans-canada highway and his little episode with the fishing spear?

we've set up this whole culture of victimisation here in canada... and canadian taxpayers dish out 10 billion dollars yearly... to what avail?

it's time to get back to one people, one law.

The fact they don't want a third party manager sniffing around tells you everything you need to know. Then send in Bob Rae to try and shake down more money. What a frigging joke. Sorry lib-dippers it's not going to work this time.

While we're at it we need to send in a third party manager to audit the LPC books and discover where the $40 million ADSCAM dollars went, and the illegal campaign contributions to the leadership candidates (AKA unrepaid "loans" to the leadership candidates) and so on.

Bet Chief Bob won't be too willing to let the third party manager come in either...
