Stand In Solidarity with Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence

 As the majority of Canadians are preparing for the holidays, our First Nations communities are suffering significantly under the “Harper” government and Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, John Duncan. Just a quick reminder of this government’s douchebaggery, let’s flashback to the famous or infamous “Harper” quote in regard to last year’s housing crisis “This government has spent some $90 million since coming to office just on Attawapiskat. “That’s over $50,000 for every man, woman and child in the community. Obviously we’re not very happy that the results do not seem to have been achieved for that.”

To date Mr. Harper hasn’t apologized for his completely inane, inflammatory and misleading statement. Rather than find solutions to the crisis, he blamed the victims, the native population, who were subject to horrendous treatment and abuse by the government. Mr. Harper’s behaviour on that occasion, mirrors his complete contempt and arrogance in regard to our native population

This government is attempting to make significant changes to the Indian Act, specifically by attempting to ram through Bill C-428 without proper consultation with the First Nations’ population it affects. The governments, both past and present, have done little to deal with the substandard living conditions our native population are exposed to, that parallel the living conditions seen in developing nations. This government has failed to address the inequity in the educational funding afforded to these people. This government refuses to abide by treaties between the native community and the government. This government continues to believe that colonialization is a good and noble cause. This government has become an embarrassment within the global community in its callous disregard for its own citizens.

“This government has spent over $1 billion on a 3-day party just on the G8/G20 summits. Obviously we, as taxpayers, are not very happy with the results.”

Chief Theresa Spence take a stance against the horrid, disrespectful treatment our First Nations population are subject to from the Canadian government. Chief Spence has been on a hunger strike since December 11, 2012. Stand in solidarity with her!

    You are suppose to represent all the people of this country no matter who they are. Stop trying to sneak new secret bills and agreements behind our back and face us. You can be replaced and at this rate you will be. You care nothing about the people of this country who voted you Prime Minister. Including the Native People. You act only in your best interest and not that of the people of Canada. Did you once think of Chief Spence and the others who are fasting in protest of Bill C-45, while you were having your christmas dinner. Are you afraid of meeting with Chief Spence. Tell me what harm it would do to you to sit down and talk to her.

    Meet with Chief Spence!!! Sit down and talk to her. God Bless you Chief Spence. I am not native but I believe in what your doing for your people. I see you are getting weak and this I believe is reason enough that the PM should make the effort to go and meet with you. Maybe we the people who voted him in should take a hard look at what lengths he is taking and decide if this is the person we want to make decisions about our future. This affects each and every one of us!

    Every hour, Canada loses respect from people and administrations and companies all over the world. Its name will long bear a stain caused by the present government.

    To every Canadian who gets to know about Chief Spence:
    I hope you and your fellow Canadians use your voices to move your government towards humanity and environmentally safe ruling!
    It might not help, but then at least you were not among those who stayed silent.
    It's terrible to look back and regret - when it's too late - regret what you did, or what your parents did. Or didn't do.
