Many thanks to the First Nations People for standing on the front lines in defence of Canadian Democracy. We must preserve the Wisdom of the Elders. We must learn to respect the land and the people. Unite in resistance to tyranny. Stand up for Canada.
It was just another sign the natural resources First Nations should be benefiting from were being sold off under their noses without their input. Just days earlier, Chief Patrick Madahbee of the Anishinabek Nation Grand Council was among a group of chiefs who tried to force their way into the House of Commons to be heard, angry that the government appeared to be uninterested in listening to or working with First Nations.”
The grassroots movement, which has included a hunger strike by Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and rallies across the country:“There is little central organization of the movement, said Martin, who became alarmed after researching the federal government’s Bill C-45, the omnibus bill that scraps protection for many of Canada’s waterways and makes it possible to sell reserve land without consultation, and FIPA — the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement — a powerful investment treaty with China.
Martin is hoping the rally will attract not only First Nations, but anyone who is against the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline”
Idle No More vs. Bill C-45: First Nations Leaders Launch National Protest In Ottawa As Movement Grows“The Canadian Auto Workers and civil service unions across the country have also shown support for the movement, saying they stand in solidarity with First Nations in a struggle against Bill C-45.”
“Federal Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development Diane Finley could be facing a contempt of court charge tomorrow if documents related to a court case involving HD Mining and two unions are not released. Charles Gordon, lawyer for the International Union of Operating Engineers and Construction and Specialized Workers Unions, said the ministry has not forced HD Mining to release documents containing resumes of Canadians who applied for jobs at the company's Murray River coal mine project. Earlier this month, a federal court justice ordered all materials related to Labour Market Opinions used to apply for permits for 201 Chinese nationals to work at the mine be given to the unions. This week, a Federal Court of Appeal judge wouldn't accept an appeal filed by the federal government to block the ruling.” Steven Harper and Christy Clark have alined themselves with the Chinese Communist Party. The Feds are doing everything they can to back up the Chinese resource companies in their struggle to import Chinese workers against the wishes of Canadian Unions.
“Richard Fadden basically alleged that the Chinese government is infiltrating Canadian political bodies subtlely and that this influence extends to municipal and political bureaucrats and politicians and even a couple of unnamed cabinet ministers. It was a very alarming allegation for a spymaster to make publicly. In Canada, we don't have a tradition of CSIS going public with theses sorts of concerns about specific individuals, and certainly [not]individual politicians.”
HD Mining's Biggest Backer Is Mysterious,Tracing BC coal mine owners, union left in dark about majority shareholder Huiyong Holdings.
“It also questions the backgrounds of some of the people involved in the company, such as the company's chief consultant Ye Qing, referring to him as "as high-level an insider as one might hope to become within the Chinese Communist Party." The United Steelworkers' Union has been pressuring the government to consider pulling HD Mining's permits allowing 201 Chinese miners to work at the company's Murray River project since discovering help wanted ads indicating Mandarin language skills were an asset for the jobs. They alleged the mine wants to use Chinese workers to cut down on labour costs and benefits. Last week one of the miners from China filed a human rights complaint against the union on the grounds it has stir up contempt for Chinese people, a charge the USW has denied saying it is protecting the interests of local workers.”
What a Joke, try and file a human rights complaint against the CCP and see what happens.
To become a resource colony for the CCP, the biggest human rights abuser in the world, is against what Canada is supposed to stand for. Have some guts and stand up to the establishment. People like us make the world what it is, history is not a show that passes us by, we make history, get involved in the movement.
Rafe Mair: All I Want for Christmas Is a May election that puts in power true defenders of BC's natural bounty.
“To me the dominant issue before all others going into May's provincial election is the environment. Fiscal fudge-ups can be fixed as can most bad policy. But environmental damage -- be it due to fish farms, pipelines, tankers, Site C or loss of agricultural land -- is, to all intents and purposes, permanent.”
“Alberta is responsible for setting and collecting petroleum rents for 70 per cent of Canada's production -- the sixth largest in the world. Why is the province that casts itself as the seat of sound fiscal management, now having to borrow money while cutting services and running deficits? Norway produces roughly the same amount of oil as Alberta, yet this tiny nation has managed to salt away over $600 billion in accumulated oil wealth in a sovereign wealth fund that now amounts to more than one per cent of global equity markets.
Norway has no public debt, full employment and fully-funded social programs that Canadians would drool over. Norwegians enjoy free university tuition, universal day care and 25 days of paid holidays per year. Per capita spending on healthcare is thirty per cent higher in Norway; funding for arts and culture is more than three times higher than Canada.”
So our resources are now owned by a totalitarian regime, workers will be brought in from China, to work at Chinese owned resource developments. Pipelines, will be build to ship our unprocessed oil reserves across First Nations Territory putting waterways at risk to a fuel product that specifically is impossible to clean up. The resources will be loaded on to huge Chinese tankers that will make daily trips through some of the most dangerous coastline waters in the world, all against the wishes of the majority of the Canadian people. And on top of that The director of the Canadian spy agency has warned that certain foreign governments are aggressively recruiting Canadian politicians.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
