What is going on with our poor natives
This hunger striking chief was lining her pockets with our money..
Stand up. Get Er. Done. And get to work . Cut off all handouts, no more funding , no more crying for who you are , and what you have turned yourself into .
Protest you will , and degrade you all.

I am the same as you , same hands , same heart , Ask for it all , you will get nothing .

I went through it some what. Lots of lawyer jargon .Biggest change was in fishing. Nobody ( native ,white, black, purple) can net across a creek , river or stream. The most anybody can go is 75%(3/4) across the main flow.
Bridge and dam amendments were for the Detroit River . To speed up trade with the States.
I couldn't find anything in there that would make a a huge protest .
Consulted, I didn't get consulted either. So what!! I did vote though.
Teresa Spense and the other councilors got caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
Show the taxpayers the books ya scammers.

This whole protest is damn frustrating for a bunch of reasons. Forget about Bill C-45. Idle No More started there, but the protest has since become a way for natives to show how frustrated they are about the broken relationship between natives, the government and the Indian Act. And they have a right to be frustrated - the Indian Act truly doesn't work for natives, non-natives, or the government. So natives have every right to be pissed off about it.

But the Idle No More protest has become a circus sideshow and an embarassment. The movement has yet to put forward any practical ways to fix the problems that they're so upset about. And the documented and ongoing failings of Theresa Spense, the showboating figurehead of the movement, are turning a very serious issue into a joke.

To enact real change, a protest movement has to be more than just vague, purposeless anger. And you can't pin your hopes on a hunger-striking attention-seeker who has a proven record of financial mismanagement and less-than-ethical leadership. It's a freakin' shame because the natives want and need change, but the current Idle No More movement is taking them much farther away from that goal.

Yes, but that doesn't make stereotypes correct. Even if you can find a few, or a dozen, or a hundred, or a thousand, or ten thousand, or even a hundred thousand natives who choose to live the "typical lazy native" stereotype, it still doesn't mean you can apply a stereotype to the rest of the 1.2 million native Canadians.

You, your family and your friends might think it's fun to clean your toilets with your tongue. That doesn't mean I can't paint all of Lac La Biche with the same dirty brush.

I guess the natives are smarter than we think in the 1880,s. if they would of put up a fight they may of been wiped out . Now. With a country full of bleeding hearts they may get free everything .

I do think that there should be rights for treaty Indians , but a man needs some honour and pride not handouts and a free ride .
