  1. Separation ...... what if ?

    FFS man...I told you it was referenced from Stats Canada. I even sent you the direct link to see the numbers are exactly the same. Is Stats Canada fake too? With that said at least your highschool number was a lot closer to reality much unlike your earlier 60% blunder. The way things work around here is that when a person makes a claim, it is up to that person to back it up. You made the claim so you need to back it up or shut up. Either works.
  2. Separation ...... what if ?

    Clearly your comprehension is as bad as your math. I stated that it was a Stats Canada referenced Wiki link...meaning that page sources its info from Stats Canada. If you took the time to read, you would see the source link right below the chart which leads to this page http://www5.statcan.gc.ca/cansim/a46?lang=eng&childId=3840038&viewId=3 I could have sent you right to this page but there is a lot of info on it and it is apparent how easily you are confused. I assumed the Wiki chart was much easier for you to comprehend. I have asked for another MLW member to back up this very claim and they refused to do so. As such I will ask you to do the same. Please cite (using a reputable source and not your high school tests) showing the amount that the Province of Ontario or the Federal government contributed to getting Alberta's economy going. To save time, please also cite the amount of money that Alberta has returned to the country from said 'cesspool' operations.
  3. Separation ...... what if ?

    LMFAO...you are getting your stats from a high school test? What grade are you in. At least you have quickly retreated from your claim of 60% of Canada's GDP down to 41% however as per the Stats Canada referenced number from the Wiki link I shared, the actual percentage was 39.05%. Using the same population statistics on that chart we see that Ontario makes up 38.5% of the population. Ontario on par for what would be expected of them....nothing better and nothing worse. Of course these numbers are based on 2016 stats. If you have more recent stats that contradict them them by all means present them. Just present something reputable this time! I am sure you are just trolling at this point but I'm bored and figure what they hey! You do know that Alberta gives more to the Federal Government than it receives...right? Ontario gives Alberta nothing. Notta, zero, zip, zilch. But maybe you're just overly sensitive as Ontario is back on the Have Not list.
  4. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    No...no I’m not. I said I have rights under law. No where did I say I have absolute right over the property. Like most people I realize that I am a part of society and there are reasonable expectations and limitations to what I can do on and with my property however that does not mean I have zero property rights. From your link: Charter Rights Although the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms does not expressly protect property rights, such rights are created and are therefore protected by both common law and by statute law — As a Canadian citizen, you have those same rights just not on the ‘Rez’ since the Crown owns that land. The only place in Canada thus far that has allowed individual property rights on reserves is in B.C. where those rights were negotiated in their recent treaty. Sadly, Treaty 4 offers you no such luck
  5. Separation ...... what if ?

    @?Impact still waiting on your citation to back up your statement. Or would you rather retract it?
  6. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    Thanks. For me...a link showing I have rights under the law to property For you...an initiative. You do know what that word means right? An idea....a thought....in other words not real at this moment. I do like the idea of First Nations Property Ownership but unfortunately your friends down at the AFN reject it.
  7. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    Again, it’s dillusional statements like this that make it impossible to have progress. I’d be more worried about it but the reality is you are just here to troll. Carry on!
  8. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    Already have...many times. Here...I'll quote you from the Treaty 4 text as you claim that is what you fall under: Any more questions?
  9. Separation ...... what if ?

    I’m guessing math isn’t your strong suit? It’s more like 39%. Ontario is right on par with the GDP Per capita so I don’t think your argument holds much water https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_provinces_and_territories_by_gross_domestic_product
  10. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    Yes...lots of frustration on both sides. That's why it would be great to actually have some solutions that would give both sides some encouragement. Yet the majority of the solutions from the First Nations is the 'Us versus Them' and the majority from the ROC is to turn a blind eye. Neither one of these works.
  11. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    Don't they already get that? The few natives I know that went to school not only had it fully paid for but also got grants to start businesses afterward. I truly feel that the solution(s) to these issues needs to be driven by the aboriginal community but not in the way that they have been going. This constant 'us versus them' thing keeps the proverbial wheels spinning in the mud. They need to think outside the box and get away from the divisive strategies. I agree but in current times the roadblock happens when the 'us versus them' situation happens. I feel the same way about Quebec....I love Montreal and the French Canadian culture in general but I immediately get turned off when the divisive nature comes out
  12. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    I know a number of natives who have left the reserves and became really successful. There is no doubt the vast majority would have the same capabilities if they did too however the reserves seem to be like quicksand that keep sucking people back in even when there is little to no hope. The issue again seems to be the system of segregation that continues to draw them into staying on reserve. Ironically it was the white man's segregation that put them there and its their own segregation that keeps them there. Its very much an 'us versus them' mentality with the whole time hearing about how Canada is screwing them over. But here is the kicker....they are CANADA. They have the ability to join the rest of us and have the same so called benefits that we have but choose to stay on reserve for their treaty rights and so called benefits to be had there. I don't get it but I am not in that situation so its maybe not fair to judge. I just get tired of hearing the same rhetoric with no way forward.

    Please provide a citation to back this up
  14. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    I agree with this but what do you suggest is the way forward? in my mind the only suggestions brought forth by the Indigenous are continued segregation and separation from the rest of Canada. I would love to see a solution that actually is progressive and solves the problem rather than perpetuates it.
  15. Stanley verdict not to be appealed

    Your rights are laid out and very clear, just like the treaties that also say you ceded your rights to the land which go on to give certain exceptions to what you are allowed to do on that land.
