  2. There are bad apples in every segment of society Robert and judging all natives by a handful is generalization I will never support. I know many native people living as I do close to a reserve and the majority of them are no different than any of my other friends.
  3. There are some reserves that are operating the same as any municipality, Cannuck and they deserve all the credit due them. I don't lump all reserves together but your points are all very well taken.
  4. Out of 'thumbs up' for today, so consider this just that.
  5. Thank you for your knowledge and insights into this issue, cannuck. They are much appreciated.
  6. In the first place there is no way 'we' can give them Yukon, Nunavut or NWT. In the second place, I highly doubt that the citizens of those territories would welcome the invasion and I can't say as I would blame them one bit. I completely understand your frustration with this issue Robert but I will never ever condone the breaking up of our country to appease less than 3% of the population. It is a NO GO from the start.
  7. No one is ever going to 'give them back OUR country' so you can put that thought aside. This country belongs to all Canadians no matter their race and the sooner some of the activist types finally realize that, the sooner things just might actually approach the reconciliation that all of us are hoping to see.
  8. I've been waiting for that 'self-sustainability' to kick in for over 60 years. There are some reserves that are well functioning communities with high employment, good living conditions and well educated members but there are many more that will never attain that status due to where they are located. They will remain virtual 'wards of the state' with no hope for a better future in sight as they will never have a way of becoming self- sustaining. They adamantly refuse to relocate yet are willing to see their children die of suicide or drug overdoses. It is like cutting off your nose to spite your face. It is these reserves that need to be dealt with in some manner that is beneficial to them and to the country.
  9. Interesting question, Zeitgeist but considering any money that is given to the natives is taken out of our taxes and the distribution of same is solely up to the government of the day, don't you think it is rather moot? Just asking.
  10. Considering the toxic environment of the caucus due to the intransigence of the former AG and her obvious and public disapproval of the PM, he had no choice.
  11. Considering she is no longer a member of the party and now sits in the backbenches as an independent any thought of her ever being nominated is a no show, no go.
  12. That surprised me, scribblet as I thought for sure he would weasel his way out of it by leaving it up to the caucus who were most adamantly ready to boot her out ASAP.
  13. Uh............because - for now, he is the PM and can as he wishes with any member of the caucus and the party. The PM has sole discretion over who sits in caucus.
  14. I believe that had she simply stuck with her comments supporting her buddy, she might have had a chance but going to the media was beyond the pale for the majority of the MPs in caucus. Too bad, of the two I had much more respect and admiration for Jane Philpot.
  15. They are gone, gone, gone and so much the better. Seems like the caucus also had their fill of these two disloyal party members.
  16. As acting AG she had no business commenting on the jury verdict no mater what the outcome was, Zeitgeist. Sad and tragic it is and could have been avoided had the people in the car not been bent on mischief and invading private property. There is blame on both side in this matter.
  17. They may indeed have some sympathy among some of the Canadian public - the nation? Not so much.
  18. Oh I agree completely. I posted that as an example of someone in the position of AG who had no business commenting on a jury's verdict.
  19. Ticked? Not at all, I could not be happier to see this government go down in flames as they so richly deserve to.
  20. The 'old boys club' as you refer to the party knows exactly what should be done with these two women and I expect that they will be taken care of in short order. Neither of them are lacking in intelligence and had to know that they would effectively become the pariahs they are once they decided to go against their own party.
  21. Right you are, it wasn't illegal - unethical and questionable? That's another matter altogether.
  22. "The federal justice minister has said the country “can and must do better” after a white farmer was acquitted in the shooting death of a young Indigenous man ...." https://globalnews.ca/news/4018386/federal-justice-minister-gerald-stanley/
  23. For someone with your moniker - one would think you would realize that the bridge to a leadership run was burned by the former AG herself. She has zero chance of becoming anything more than a post-note to history. Disloyalty has its own consequences and after the revelation of that clandestine taped phone call, who in their right mind would let her near any file of consequence knowing that she might do the exact same thing again. Her colleagues have every right to be fearful of her and demand that she be removed ASAP.
