Canada is the result of #genocide and proof is here at 1755.ca and in the book VERITAS Acadia. It is time to #Stop_Gov_terrorism #endgenocide #endcolonialism and #Censorship of centuries of world history. #IdleNoMore #BlackLivesMatter  @JustinTrudeau @cafreeland
Acadians are the first Métis. Our history here. To deny it violates Treaty of Utrecht. I am Lanteigne and Gallien of Caraquet and of these lines. I am still Mi’kmaw and Acadian to this day.

This sketch is in London. Shows our goods were part of international trade including our baskets, snow shoes and Mi’kmaw hockey sticks.

Canada’s 44 wealthiest people, all billionaires, grew their wealth by a total of $53 billion between April and October of this year. huffingtonpost.ca/entry/inequali…
It was Harper & Nigel Wright who allowed CEOs to control shares to reduce corporate tax rates by 50%. They allowed the depletion of the tax base of schools, hospitals, roads and life supports. Look at the shares they control. We lost 50% on those revenues. macleans.ca/economy/money-…

Everyone fears Constitutional Reform but the simple truth is the existing Constitution constitutes nothing. Your a company not a nation. theoutline.com/post/8686/cana…
Tax justice advocates around the world know the truth.

The race votes as shown on @cnn completely undermines the fact that Indigenous people are black, white, Latino etc.

We had centuries of international trade before Europe. Indigenous people include all these people today.
Indigenous North Americans did trade with Antwerp in 1550. Our hockey sticks, baskets and snowshoes were used there by trade.

Indigenous flag flies as Governor General arrives. Many voices chanting in the background. Strong Indigenous presence here. My view: It's their land. There should be. Image

1/ Beginning of a long thread.

Yesterday a CBC report noted that myself and a surgical colleague reported the hanging of a noose in June 2016. Thank you to everyone who has sent me supportive messages and phone calls since the story was published. It means a lot.
2/ I have spoken out about racism, discrimination and bias for almost 20 years. There are many within AHS that have championed this message, including our CEO who amplified this message (and me) both when she was over PPIH and in her current role.

3/ I want to share with you the conversation I had with my 12 year old daughter last night. In it I shared my truths, and together she helped me arrive at some worthwhile insights. As she told me, “Dad you’ve always said things clearly to people. Why stop?” She’s right of course.

This site states Canada didn't write the British North America Act. It was drafted by Lord Thring at Treasury and arrived to Canada in 1876. It is not a constitution for it constitutes nothing. Read here. quora.com/Is-Canada-a-co…
So from what I see, your house of Canada is lacking a foundation. In part because you deported the actual Nations from Acadia to Standing Rock. Which was complete illegal. Lawsuit of Warren Perrin vs. Queen here: 1755.ca/perrin/perrin.…

Thread incoming, will be pauses while I type
Disclaimer - everything I say here has already said, by better writers (often Indigenous) & by more knowledgable ppl (often Indigenous).

None of this should be taken as my own original thoughts, tho is not the fault or deficiency of the original thinkers if I get anything wrong.
Hello World, we need to talk about Canada.

I'm doing this in the context of my #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike, because the Winnipeg youth Climate Strike group, @mbyouth4climate, has been very involved in #WetsuwetenSolidarity #ShutDownCanada actions.

After 5 years of asking, the NFB has returned my #J11 footage (600GB). At the height of #IdleNoMore I was asked to make a micro film for the NFB ($10K total budget). We used 3 cell phones. We were in the Chiefs’ main assembly, AFN/PTO back rooms, the Governor General’s mansion.
It’s a fascinating and heartbreaking look at the political processes FN bands are forced to participate in, tinkering around the Indian Act, tinkering around the edges of a system meant to kill us. The week of Jan. 6-11, 2013 forever changed so many lives. #J11
Harper rammed Bill C45 through the house. It was an omnibus bill that threatened to have devastating effects on Indigenous People in Canada. December 2012, Idle No More cemented it’s place in Indigenous Peoples’ long-standing resistance history. It was a beautiful & sacred time.

First let’s talk about basic Indigenous rights, then we’ll get to reconciliation

The 2 events are aspects of the same fight — "to be fairly, legally recognized in a country that spins stories about the sincerity of reconciliation...."

1) Conservative collusion with the oil industry, stacking the NEB with industry insiders, & gutting Canada’s environmental protections led to the failure of Northern Gateway (NG), TMX, the creation of #IdleNoMore, entrenched pipeline opposition, and #cdnpoli #abpoli #bcpoli
2) to Bill C69 and:

Fisheries Act no longer protects most fish

Navigable Waters Act doesn't protect most lakes/rivers

Environmental Assessment Act replaced with a skinny law probably written on a napkin

Round Table on Environment & Economy dismantled

But Harper wasn’t done!
3) He demonized the environmental movement & aboriginal groups, and laid the groundwork for conspiracy theories: anti-oil-activists were a threat to national security, were “eco-terrorists” or “violent aboriginal extremists”, & that foreign money was blocking oilsands expansion.

1. Many of you have seen this revealing 1948 letter from Kamloops IRS principal F. O'Grady make the rounds on social media. Image
2. I saw someone ask a question about whatever happened to Rev. O'Grady so decided to take a quick look.
3. Fergus John O'Grady was Oblate missionary at St. Mary's Mission and at Kamloops from 1936-46. Then principal for 6 yrs at Kamloops IRS.
