If this doesn’t piss you off, it should. I dare, double dare any ‘first Nations’ peoples to live for a year like a Tibetan and then tell me there is any comparison. Amer-Indians have more rights and get tons of cash for nothing in Canada and pay no taxes and get first dibs on jobs over qualified people not to mention grants for anything at all with less hassle.
To dare try and get Harper lectured to by China on their behalf is sick to the point of sociopathic. China tortures and kills large numbers of people for political opinions not in sync with the regime. Amer-Indians make huge government cash for protesting against Government policies that actually pay them both ways, implemented and stopped.
These people should be profoundly ashamed of themselves. But, as I said, sociopathic.
(If you search Sun News Network Videos, there are several where Ezra Levant expose protesting indians who are getting paid by foreign political lobbies to protest Canadian pipelines which actually have no impact on their lives whatsoever but have paid them hundreds of millions of dollars. I don’t have the time to find them now, but I did link an interesting and related one above.)
It’s expected that prime minister Stephen Harper will raise the issue of China’s human rights record this week while meeting with government officials in the middle kingdom.
But will China take Canada to task for its record on human rights?
In an ironic twist, a First Nations group from British Columbia is asking the Chinese government to raise the issue with Stephen Harper.
In an open letter to Chinese President Hu Jin Tao, the Yinka Dene Alliance, comprised of five First Nations communities in central British Columbia, suggest their human rights are being violated at the hands of the Canadian government.
“We are writing to you to request that you raise our human rights concerns with Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. We understand that you will meet with him in China this week. From previous public reports we know that Prime Minister Harper always challenges your country on the human rights record. Open dialogue around human rights is a very positive way to create change and we hope that you to hear our side of the story before this meeting occurs,” notes the letter signed by Chiefs from the alliance’s five first nations.
“Aboriginal communities in Canada live at the margins of society conditions. Recently the community of Attawapiskat was highlighted in the news for the extreme conditions with lack of housing, running water and sewage. Attawapiskat is one of more than 100 First Nations communities in Canada that face this reality. These conditions violate the adequate standard of living guaranteed by theUniversal Declaration of Human Rights.”
