@bedfortst post January 7, 2013 at 2:01 pm You are NOT alone. Problem is the Indians have no other form of protest but blackmail and pavement stomping to get their points across….whether any of us agree with them or not….mostly NOT. Spit is in the middle no question. Funny that they do not recognize themselves as Canadians unless it is convenient when hollering for mo-money honey. This crap about being their own nation as long as we pay for it rubes the craw of most Canadians, as much as the ROC (rest of Canada) is ticked about the French only… Read more »

@Bedfort, first off none of us care that you have “had just about enough of this sh*t” and should we? Should we extend any more empathy towards your interrupted cross border shopping trip than you have expressed in your post above towards this issue?

@Dukers1, what difference does it make if some natives are opposed to C-45 and some are not? Why is it that Natives all have to agree with each other and be united under one idea and common cause but the non-native population is not held to that high standard of unity. Less than 30% of voting Canadians brought the Tory gov. a majority…..it does not appear that non natives are any more unified in their opinions so again why do you think Natives should be one voice? Protest is a democratic tool used to give voice to the oppressed and… Read more »

It will be intseresting to see just how much impact this attawapiskat news plays out.

Considering the money given and the maintenance shown in the news I believe there is some merit in the claim.

Nothing but a distraction, Hailey Brown. The same as last year when the Harper government was embarassed because of the housing crisis. Their best defence, “I know you are but what am I!”

@bobgeneric I couldn’t care less if I never shopped in the US again. You cared enough about my comment to post on it. The “shit” I’m refering to is the constant whining about a border from people who’s only care about it was that it made it easier for them to break the law, which the rest of Canadians must abide. I’m tired of the endless teat sucking of my country by those who claim to live in their own “nation”. Want your own “nation” then break from us completely! That means financialy as well. Create your own currency, passport,… Read more »

@Bedford, My “care” of what you said was just a hope that you would expand on your 14 word whine-a-tribe and unveil your real ignorance…..I was not disappointed. So if I understand correctly this is your country? If that is so then why is it that natives, native business , and native controlled natural resources added multi billions to the coffers of “your” country annually? Treaty 9 natives in Alberta successfully won a court battle 10 years ago arguing that treaty 9 states no taxes are to be levied on this band. Revenue Canada argued that this would put a… Read more »

But is it true Bella?

I so wish I could tell of what I have seen from audits, but professionaly it is not in my best interest.

Suffice it to say the aboriginals are just as guilty of stealing money from their people as the Canadian government is from all of us.
