Indigenous protesters confront Carolyn Bennett at Canada Day picnic

The uncomfortable disparity between the idyllic vision of Canada celebrated Saturday and the lived realities of many in Indigenous communities was on sharp display in Toronto this afternoon.

    “Our kids are not speaking the language …”

    a. Whose fault is that?
    b. Speaking a language that might be spoken by 300-400 other people (at most) is hardly a ticket to success and prosperity.
    c. If your family lives weren’t so messed up, you could teach your children whatever language you want to.

    • And people seem to forget. The only reason most tribal peoples even have a written language today that can be preserved and taught in their schools, after it falls out of cultural use, is because of the work of “evil colonialist” Missionaries and Linguists.

    Who cares. Liberals and Indians deserve each out.

    The stink of carolyn bennet’s moccasin curls the tip of even a burning spear.

    • JoKeR

      Next these ungrateful Canadians will be demanding to get as much as “Syrian” refugees” are given by governments in Canada!

  • Alain

    From the looks of the crowd they don’t look like they are going hungry, just saying.

    • Yo Mama

      Alcohol has lots of calories.

    Idle No More my ass. The only time these parasites aren’t idle is when they’re marching for more welfare.

    More smallpox please!

  • Related: Trudeau is such a dick head — in his Canada Day speech when he named off all the Provinces and Territories, he forgot Alberta!

      ah, but he tweeted an “apology”

      • ah, but an “apology” still wouldn’t get him a passing grade in Grade 3 Geography.

        • JoKeR

          I don’t think he ever passed that.

    • Oh, I’m sure that was an accident.

    Dances With Hippos ate too many parts of the buffalo.

  • Gary

    So why did John Tory and Wynne welcome so many Muslim refugees to give them welfare and better housing than many natives.
    Oh wait…..Liberals see that muslims will be a big voting-block very soon and who cares if women get acid throw in the face or a few gays get tossed off the CN tower. Justin wants to get back in during the 2019 election and it wouldn’t shock me if he legalizes some pedophilia to get the votes from muslims and gays .

  • These @$$holes just did this to be unpleasant.

    • Clausewitz

      They didn’t have to do this to be unpleasant, they are so by nature.

  • Micky C.

    OH FFS! These fucking morons are perpetually infantilized. Children forever, that need daddy government to give them an allowance and tell them how to think. Hard to take their talk of decolonizing Canada seriously when they can’t even take care of themselves. Fuck it! I’m in America this weekend for Independence day. Canada… pfffffffffft! It’s not even a real country anyway.

  • Yo Mama

    Why didn’t Carolyn just buy them all a beer?

    • Alain

      It would have taken more than one beer each.

    Reliance on government to fix what’s wrong in your community is folly. Throwing more money at a dysfunctional system of administration of reserve lands and peoples isn’t going to help, all that does is enrich the few at the top while others live with next to nothing.
    Fixing this has It has to start at the individual level. If you have mental/emotional issues…get help so you can help others in your family, so the dysfunctional behaviours stop with you. You can learn to parent effectively if you are motivated to do that.
    So you live on a reserve with lousy housing and lack of clean water, sanitation or whatever. Nothing is tying you to that reserve if you don’t wish it to, you do have feet.
    Life is a struggle. You can continue to choose to be a victim or you can choose otherwise. If you are relying on government, you are choosing victimhood. Just my two cents.

    This is not going to have a happy ending. These activists will watch every last Native commit suicide or overdose before they will admit that property rights, personal accountability, and the rule of law are superior to their “ways.”

    In fact, every tragedy only strengthens their political power.

    What isn’t getting reported is how many of the protesters are just the same SJW’s and union activists you see at every event. One of the featured speakers in Ottawa is a black, Muslim woman who has been an organizer since the “Occupy” protests. They even had a tranny. Or two. It is hard to tell.

    They are just using the Indians as props.

    • Alain

      Not only that, but if DNA tests were administer to every one of them claiming to be “indigenous”, they would show a lot of white blood. So if they are determined to cling to “Indian” status and maintaining the Indian Act, administer the test and boot every last not 100% Indian off the list and expelled from all reserves. No special benefits for any who cannot prove to be truly Indian. Yes, I know my approach would result in me and all who agree being another bunch of Hitlers, but at this point I don’t care.

    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the disproportionate number of obese people among the First Nations militants?

      Alcohol has a high caloric content.
