  1. Link please? loosening Ottawa's grip on reserve-land holdings so that First Nations are free to develop, exploit and borrow against one of the few assets they have; The author has identified the real issue: Give them back their land.
  2. I think you don't know Canadian law.
  3. The CURRENT SITUATION is caused by Ontario's flagrant evasion of Supreme Court rulings - Constitutional Law.
  4. You are SO right, guyser. 'Christians' who lament the crassness of Christmas need only look to the 'Christian' merchants in their congregations for the reasons for that!
  5. Let me know when OUR governments observe OUR laws. Only then do we have a right to criticize Six Nations: their behaviour is a response to flagrant violations of our laws by our governments.
  6. by reforming the absurd structures that frequently stand in the way of First Nations developing their own lands and resources to become more economically independent; This will help. It will help also if the government gets off its butt and settles the land claim debts, so they have access to their own money and land for development.
  7. So this is another example of the kind of response they got. Very 'Christian', folks! Canada is NOT a Christian country. Freedom of religion, remember?
  8. Oh it is way too late to be thinking about QPk - The Mississaugas Nation's claim to Toronto was successful in 2003. The gov is trying to figure out how to pay for it. The Toronto Islands are unceded, thus still Mississaugas title. Toronto is too until the feds pay up, of course. Land claims are not political, but legal. Dalton can only stretch the law so far, and he is way beyond it anyway: Ontario has failed to consult with Six Nations about development on disputed land, so developments is being halted until he does. Makes perfect legal sense to me.
