So now a Million White Caucasians will be re-classified as "Colords", I mean Natives ?

So if you have about 15% Native Indian DNA and 85% European DNA that now somehow makes you 100% Native ??
And you can now suck our Welfare systen dry, with a Million more "WANNABEES".
Now let's see....... if a person with only 15% Native-Indian DNA will from now on be considered a FULL STATUS NATIVE INDIAN and he or she marries a Non-Indian and they have children, their child will have let's say only 7% Native-Indian blood and 93% let's say Caucasian blood and they will be known as "half Native Indians", from only one side of it's parents, but infact they are far from being even half.

Then I'm for a Racial DNA test for every Canadian to see if they have some Native Indian DNA, and then get money for it.

Before you go as far as looking for Metis brides, remember:

I don't care as long as me and my decendants will be entitled to perpetual Welfare and other handouts thanks to my future wifes Native DNA.

Haven't you heared? If you have some Native DNA you won the Lottery-Jackpot.

I have a question.

If I don't have any native DNA, should I still sing the Canadian national anthem that says:
"our home and NATIVE land" ???

If you are talking about having descendants with such a creature, then my previous comment must have gone over your head.

Once they all get their status cards, they should be rounded up, shipped up north onto reserve or crown land and live like real Indians did before the whit man came. Wanna be status Indian? Then your gonna live the traditional life. No welfare, no food vouchers, nothing. You get a bow & arrows and so e spears. That's it. DONE!!
The government could possibly give each a case of firewater and some disease laced HBC blankets, like the good old days and they should take care of themselves.

If you want them to "live like real Indians did before the whit man came", that is predicated on the removal of non-natives from this continent. Note that I'm not advocating that. Just wondering if you really thought out what you typed.

But they are 80% Caucasian DNA, they are WHITE-FOLKS.

Why is the government saying White-Folk with some Native DNA deserve more than other White folk ?

Hi, I am an American and have 25 percent French Canadian blood. My Grandmother from my mother's side was born in Quebec and I think Montreal. From what I have been reading on this Metis history it seems like Metis are grouped alone and all French Canadians are just french. I start to laugh because I believe by common sense that almost all French Canadians have Indian blood or ancestry way back. I really believe that the Indian blood is alot more than what most French Canadians believe. It is like don't say and forget it. But now they might want to say it because of these perks if any French have indian which again I believe almost all do. I mean let's face it so many French men came over and had no wives. They had no choice but to take an Indian bride and Champlain wanted them to intermingle with the Indians then.

I also believe that 2013 is a big year! I mean I know a little secret that is about to explode onto the tv set soon. Do you see Oprah going up to Canada with a flashlight and wanting to know about Canadian history especially Quebec and the Metis areas. I mean this is no coincidence honey. The secret is John Lennon has a love child daughter about ready to be given recognition for who she is. Yes it is a sad sad story but this daughter has French Canadian blood from her mother. Could that be metis blood I don't know. Well it looks like Canada wants to clean up any bad marks they might have on them. I mean if the daughter has Metis blood and Canada doesn't clean up the racism then the daughter might not want to be friendly toward the Canadian government. Yes, people you might laugh at what I have just stated but let me tell you I think soon you will see what I mean. Why all of the sudden such wonderful treatment to the Metis? Too much of a coincidence. Also to note alot of rock musicians are going up to Canada and Canada is becoming very famous all of a sudden. Look at that. When tributes start for John Lennon and the bell of touism rings Canada wants to be there to catch the golden ball! They will have Beatle tributes like right now in Quebec and a museum has just opened. Oh and the daughter has been left millions of dollars that was hidden from her. The spotlight will be on the daughter and of course America and Canada. You see word has spread and we are in a global crisis. John Lennon is so famous that people will go into a state of shock. His depression back in the 1970's. Scandal the mother was married to another man and did not want Lennon to claim the daughter. She wanted the husband to believe the daughter was his. Years of hidden secrecy. But Lennon's wish is soon to be told and done. In fact remember when Lennon went to Montreal and said give peace a chance. He was crying for the daughter and I think he tried to see her relatives up there to convince the mother to let him see the daughter. Big story people but you heard it here first!
