Indigenous leaders to boycott Monday’s meeting with premiers

The Assembly of First Nations (AFN), the Métis National Council and Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) told CBC News they’re backing out of the meeting because they believe their groups should be included as equal partners at the Council of the Federation meeting, which starts on Tuesday.

    Brampton, Ontario, City councillor says whites have built a great society. Entire council shocked. Want him reprogramed ….

    • Alain

      Good for him and may he withstand the attacks for speaking the truth.

    • Martin B

      It takes big brass balls to say that in Bramladesh.

    • Ho Hum

      I hope he sticks to his guns and doesn’t apologize. He should have asked that moronic air-head reporter what is wrong with saying “white people built a great society”. It is a FACT that white people are mostly responsible for the greatness of Canada. If it was left up to the lazy stupid drunken Indian’s to build this country what would Canada look like?

      Good for you..
      Races and Colours and Religions .
      This is what it is all about.
      So Ramp up your Hate !
      There are still some Christians and Jews Left.

      • Del Evans

        You see a lot of hate in what I posted do you Shebel? Are you proud or ashamed of what the Jews and Christians have accomplished over the years? Will you be tracking down the original owners kin of the property you reside and hand the title over?

        • Shebel

          Simmer down—Del—
          I was actually agreeing with the olde coote.
          Sometimes I post like -I am there.
          it was a compliment.

          • Del Evans

            Maybe post a disclaimer when you reply then. Or take an English class.

  • Alain

    Tell me when they make equal contributions to society, since then I would think about calling them “equal partners”. Call their bluff and let them boycott.

    • Watchman

      They would claim to supply the land and naturals resources that deserves them at least equal representation. They would then say that if they are not granted this, the non-native Canadians should emigrate elsewhere. (Nope, I wouldn’t believe them either nor grant them their demands.)

      • Alain

        Claim all they like, but it is not their land nor their natural resources.

  • BillyHW

    So how did Metis get to be Indians?

    • Alain

      Another freebie from the federal government.

    • Shebel

      So how did the Metis get to be White ?

    They are not coming to the meetings? And this is a problem? How so?

  • Lightstream

    I wonder when the ” First Nations” are going to give the Inuit their land back. They drove the Inuit into the snow and ice from ” the land of the sticks” ( what the Inuit called the forest ).
    No one in their right mind would choose to live in the Arctic, unless they were forced to live there. So I think the Aboriginals owe the Inuit an apology and a ton of money for stealing their land.

      Damned Mesopotamians!

    • Shebel

      We will have to ask the Mother TURTLE—
      She knows—

  • Whatever.

  • Shebel

    Fuck Brampton .

  • Shebel

    Talk about Cultural appropriation —–
    A Bearded White guy pretending to be a Native.

  • Shebel

    Strange how the the Muslims appear to take over any one area.
    I don’t think that it has anything to do with Politics.
    Because as Justin tells us —- They love inclusiveness.
    They just HATE diversity.

  • Justin St.Denis

    “Aboriginal leaders” pull this outta their asses every couple of years. Everybody bends over backwards for them and organizes a meeting, and the “aboriginal leaders” then announce that they are boycotting the meeting. Children do this, too. That tells you a lot…

    For my entire life, I have had to listen to – and even “learn” – unadulterated bullshit about “Canada’s aboriginal peoples”. I spent years going to a school with a 50% native student body. I have worked for periods of time on reserves in Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia, Nevada and Arizona. I have dealt with native federal and provincial bureaucrats over a career that spanned decades. My takeaway is this: Aboriginal (native, Indian) groups suffer from one of the most severe cases of Loser Derangement Syndrome in recorded history. Their invented histories and cultures were almost entirely defined – if not outright fabricated – by Jesuit and other Christian missionaries for their own reasons. What native people actually do share in common is a belief in a fantasy history and culture that never was.


    • Shebel

      It is sad.

  • simus1

    When it comes to the top ranks of the “indigenous industry”, the first thing I would like to scrutinize would be dna results and political party affiliation.

    • Clausewitz

      It’s Bramladesh and Missapotamia.

  • Shebel

    Everybody is just ever so upset. .
    Any chance of boycotting your WELFARE payments that go to the Chief?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Black velvet is cultural appropriation. Lose the hat and the vest Cochise.
