“It’s not the status cards, it’s the fact that we have been paying out of the nose for generations for something that isn’t our doing. If their ancestors sold out too cheap it’s not my fault and i shouldn’t have to be paying for any mistake or whatever you cheap moncler want to call it from MY hard earned money.”

“It’s time our generation stopped paying for the mistakes of the pastlet us all be one peopleTHE SAME. If the native people are to be the moncler outlet store proud nation they keep talking about, then moncler jackets outlet stand on your two feet and hold your heads high. There are a lot of things to be proud of, stop dwelling on the past. Because like the economythe gravy train bubble will eventually burst too.”

monlcer down jackets This attitude is very common among Canadian citizens. Most have not been properly educated and informed on the cruelty the settlers only one hundred years ago, inflicted on the Indian peoples. The Residential Schools issue, though not a minor injustice, was not the most serious of crimes perpetrated. The many other actions the governments and others inflicted have moncler outlet jackets yet to be even acknowledged.

Many people actually sympathize with her words “In my opinion, we have paid our debta thousand fold; when in fact the debt in British Columbia has not even been acknowledged and identified. Where has it been written and taught in school how our government of the day purposefully spread small pox in an effort to deliberately infect and kill off as many Indian people as the government could?

Comment by Helmut Giesbrecht on 18th April 2013

Your society subjugates an indigenous population for about 500 years, takes away the lands on which they hunted and gathered for thousands of years, placed them on small reserves so you can access their lands with impunity, spread a disease for which they had no immunity they didn need it before Europeans came and it killed hundreds of thousands, killed off their food supply and tried to make them like the colonizers and then, when after centuries they say no to more of this injustice somebody, some immigrant comes along and says. should all be equal. Why? Because, justice and redress of past wrongs is so damned inconvenient and asking for equality now is also so self serving.

moncler outlet It was greed that determined policy in North America when the Europeans colonizers came and it is the same greed times by the same group that determines most policy and attitudes toward First Nations today. moncler outlet

Comment by Mr. Peters on 18th April 2013

moncler sale I do not care if you are pink, yellow, or poke a doted, or come from the dark side of the moon. I believe everyone, regardless of ethic background or gender should be entitled to the same opportunities. That does not currently exist. cheap moncler coats What does exist is an apartheid like state within Canada. And it most certainly is the white man fault and no other. When I went to university, in the 80 there were 120 applicants to the program and only 18 of us got in. There were however 2 seats reserved for anyone of Indian status, and they were fully paid for. The problem is no one ever took those 2 seats, while the rest of us had to pay 10s of thousands of dollars to go to school. moncler sale

The best thing that could happen to the nations is for the Indian act to be repealed and to have all of them become full status Canadians with no more rights and no fewer rights than everyone else. That is equality.

cheap moncler My comments on the state of the Indian culture prior to the arrival of the Europeans did not impart any statement of value to it. They were mere indicative statements of historical observation, we could debate the accuracy of those observations. It is like calling the sky blue, it is merely and indicative statement of fact from observation. You can take offense to it if you like, it however does not change history so you might as well accept it. cheap moncler
