Understanding people will be miffed about my stance on this subject, however, what should anger people is the exploitation by the political class of this history for their political gain. And it is exploitation. And it is for political gain. Sadly, some exploitation is okay for some people. As long as it makes them 'feel good' about themselves. Yah, I'm talking about the social justice warrior/virtue signaling types. Burning down churches. Despite the native population speaking out against this! Despite the fact that many natives are practicing Catholics.
Allan-Riley, who is a ‘60s Scoop survivor and the daughter of a residential school survivor, said the church arsons were fuelling further division between Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people, and that burning the churches “is not our native way.”
Some of the buildings that have been decimated by fires include a century-old Catholic church just outside of Edmonton. One of the most recent attacks was at the Vietnamese Alliance Church in Calgary on Sunday, which hours earlier held its first full service in over a year. Days before, at least 10 churches were damaged across the city in a single night.
Thankfully some natives are speaking out against these antagonizing forces. - not in solidarity with us.
Around the corner from my home is a beautiful old Catholic church. Most if it's attendees are Italian immigrants, including my father, who came after WW2. They've nothing to do with any of this. And yet... little shoes are everywhere. You can say the church is being protested? Sure. But the church is a building used by the attendees. Ordinary people who are practicing their faith. Those people are the ones being targeted by do gooders who can't see the error of their ways.
Furthermore this type of activity will do nothing but sow division and resentment. Do the SJW's who placed those shoes there know anything about how tough life was for these persons upon arrival in Canada? And what these people suffered as they left their extended families and a nation destroyed by a devastating war /occupation? Or how hard they worked to build new lives when their own were shattered. Entire villages decimated. Family members killed. Murdered. Raped. You see I know a bit about this history. And those do gooders are do badders! I won't even get into the discrimination that was experienced by these people. (Including the rounding up of Italians in Canada- another apology, more electioneering in my opinion.) Justin Trudeau’s apology to Italians may look like pre-election posturing- Here’s the real story
Yes, there is harmful history. But Trudeau's sudden penance is manipulative, carefully crafted PR.
Trudeau wants an election.
You’d have to blind to not see this is the case. Trudeau has always been a virtue signaling/identity politics player sowing the seeds of division in Canada. And he’s playing Canadians in a masterful fashion. As he has done previously. Flashback: 2015- Canada Saw Red
Getting my crystal ball out...About the native woman appointed as governor general? That’s awesome, right?
Trudeau will divide this country, same as Harper did, just in a different manner.
We will suffocate under political correctness. We already did under Harper, but, it will get so much worse under Trudeau. Free speech will be further restricted
Do you all realize this woman is the Queen’s representative here in Canada.
She is appointed by the Queen
Ms. Mary Simon- Queen's Rep in Canada
The Queen, on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of Canada, has been pleased to approve the appointment of Ms. Mary Simon as the next Governor General of Canada.Does anyone see the irony in that, all things considered? Think about it?
The appointment of this woman is highly suggestive that the far North will be militarized, greater then it already is. In order to assist the US in encircling Russia Think not? Think again.
Quoting from her bio:
She later joined the Executive Council of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference (now the Inuit Circumpolar Council), for which she served two terms as President. She was Commissioner of the Nunavut Implementation Commission and Policy Co-Director of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.Policy and program development in support of the Arctic and it's residents-
From 1994 to 2003, Ms. Simon served as Ambassador for Circumpolar Affairs, becoming the first Inuk to hold an ambassadorial position. During this time, she negotiated the creation of the Arctic Council. Concurrently, she served as Ambassador of Canada to Denmark from 1999 to 2001.
Beginning in 2006, Ms. Simon served two terms as the President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami. In 2008, in the House of Commons, she delivered a response on behalf of Inuit to the formal apology on residential schools. She is the founder of the Arctic Children and Youth Foundation and, until 2014, she was the Chairperson of the National Committee on Inuit Education.
In 2017, as the Minister’s Special Representative, Ms. Simon delivered a report to the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, A new Shared Arctic Leadership Model, setting the stage for important policy and program development in support of the Arctic and its residents.
This is cover for militarization and resource exploitation- Dressed up in fancy misleading language..
Getting to the news concerning residential schools:
If you read the royal announcement- then you're aware that Ms. Mary Simon- " delivered a response on behalf of Inuit to the formal apology on residential schools" in 2008.
We’ve talked about the situations in the Residential Schools for nearly two decades here in Canada. Settlements have been paid. Seriously. The “Truth and Reconcilliation” Commission started in 2007
The Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, the largest class-action settlement in Canadian history, began to be implemented in 2007. One of the elements of the agreement was the establishment of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada to facilitate reconciliation among former students, their families, their communities and all Canadians.Trudeau want's an election. He wants to win the election. And he will play identity politics to the nth degree if that's what it takes! Be aware of this reality. All of these realities. Don't fall for these political machinations.
Flashback 2016: In honour of Trudeau's multiple deceptions
A quick look on youtube will show the many tearful shows Trudeau has put on. So,it's show time! Or for Trudeau is crying time? Either way? The guy is insincere, that's my take. Except about winning the election. In that regard he is sincere. What ever it takes.
