It’s unbelievable that BC hasn’t declared a #dayofmourning. Does the province really need to be invited by Indigenous peoples to do that? Do we need to sign a MOU? How many bodies? #215Indigenouschildren should be enough. Take action @jjhorgan @GraceALore @MurrayRankinNDP #bcpoli
On @CBContheisland today @MurrayRankinNDP said that his govt waits to get direction from Indigenous peoples on what to do next. That’s not true. It is a ruse that places the responsibility on those who are disempowered by those who are empowered. It’s shameful, harmful & racist.
Can anyone in BC imagine any scenario where the discovery of the remains of hundreds of children would not warrant a day of mourning? Or that the province would have the gall to say ‘gee, let’s wait to hear from community’ before taking action? That would never happen.

The Mayflower landed in 1620, carrying a group of religious zealots. And when these "Pilgrims" arrived at the place they called #Plymouth, they found there an abandoned Patuxet village where they could live. THREAD 1/x
The next part of the story, as it's told in the classroom, goes something like this: The #Pilgrims w/ their belt-buckle hats & Bibles landed in a vast untamed wilderness to make a New World for God. God in all His infinite glory provided them a village & a kind man, “Squanto” 2/x
who would help them settle their Promised Land. He would give them the gift of corn & they would celebrate by giving thanks. But the truth is more like this: Just 6 years earlier, in 1614, the English had already raided those same shores & taken the Patuxets into #slavery 3/x
