My Opinion

You want to talk about Canada's human rights abuses.

www.thestar.com...
media.knet.ca...

I don't believe Canada has ever been a champion of Human Rights, The article talks about the OP posted talks about Canada not criticizing Israel about the Palestinians and not funding their agencies!! Well maybe they should be funding the people in their own back yard instead of giving money to other Governments.

Canada is sitting on top of Stolen land much larger than the country Israel and actively fights against settlements or return of lands or rights that the Canadian Government assured Native's they would receive.

As far as I am concerned Canada has put on a fascade to the International community for years.

and that's my Humble opinion on this matter.

I don't believe there is a nation active that isnt violating human rights to one degree or another.

Every nation has been built on foundations of murder, rape, lies, abuses etc... the relative citizens of each nation just find nice ways to rationalize this or look to so-called "worse" nations to feel good about their own. Truth is every last one is corrupt and evil to the core.

My friend well said well said indeed. and ya our treatment of the aboriginals is nothing to brag about. But I'd like to think its gotten better since the days we threw all their children in our 'schools' so they could be abused by the clergy all while robbing them of their past...
Even today we have trouble honouring our treaties and are pissing all over their/our land whenever there's a buck to be made...

Indeed many thx for the reply the natives plight in Canada is a subject that's always hit me hard.
On the other hand Im against paying them tax money but im all for letting them make their own tax free on their land.
be it a casino or an oil rig.

My opinion

yeah the tax money is a sticky thing being a dual edged sword, without tax funding many people in aboriginal communities would not be able to take care of their own health, education, or even attempt to make money from their own lands with some exceptions such as oil rich Natives, not also to mention that these things were guaranteed in the treaties (contracts) which never had a expire date because Governments in the past didn't think Natives would survive this long!!! Since they broke so much treaties and Natives never got paid for the lands that were traded in the first place, it's about time Natives starting seeing some cash money.

That being said Natives have also become dependant on the same Government which screws them around and actively tries to keep most Natives in poverty!!! This some Natives (not all) have a sense of entitlement with no wish to do anything spectacular with their lives.

I personally think that the Canadian Government should live up to it's treaties and unfortunatly that will involve tax dollars, just because some Natives have gained a sense of entitlement doesn't stop the Government from living up to it's obligations.

I'm sure the same could be said for many other agencies and nations the Canadian government is sending tax dollars to but since we are part of the U.N Canada has obligations and has to live up to them becuase they signed paper that said they would same as the treaties.

and that's my humble opinion.

a star for the solid reply friend

Ya I see your point and your right we have screwed them out of a lot of what had been promised but we have paid out billions. Sad thing is most of it went to a select few elders and their families...
IMHO if we are paying them royalties and what not it should be managed independently or at the very least supervised so it benefits them all equally. Not that all the native bands are corrupt many do use the money to support the whole band. But I've seen a lot of corruption first hand.

I'm going to get slammed for this I know, but in the days when the countries were still waging war with each other over land, if one country won the war, then pretty much the land was theirs.

Then there was that whole "if you can't defend it, then you're going to lose it" unspoken rule.

Now fast forward to 400 years AFTER the fact that the North and South Americas were colonized by the Europeans. It appears that only Canada is being 'poo-pooed' on for "human rights abuses". Even after we have given each bad several BILLION dollars that don't appear to get much beyond the Band councils. (Some bands are even asking the government for audits of their books because of this fact).

And that whole Kahdr issue? Well ANYONE can claim "threat of torture". Doesn't make it true. And if he killed soldiers in a war in a country for which he doesn't even have citizenship, then he should be punished. He was not acting under the dictates of war, merely using the excuse of one to kill people.
(Actually that could be said of any Soldier that goes into a battlefield for which he has no right (as a foreign national)).

So, before pointing fingers at ONE country for a mistake that happened BEFORE the country was even created, I defy you to find ONE other country that has a history of perfect human rights.

With all do respect the so called "first ones" only acquired the land through genocide of the real "first ones". That said though, they should have the right to own land they are using in the Quaker sense of property rights.
