Bob Rae in Regina about Honouring The Treaties

The Calder case about the Niska people. Argued no treaty so they had Aboriginal title to the BC land. Crown: settlement extinguished title.

Millions lived in North America hundreds of years ago, but settlers viewed it as empty.
By 1867, only 150000 indigenous people remained alive in Canada.

Our country must face and address tough issues at all levels of government.
Largest Aboriginal population is in Toronto says Bob Rae.
Dynamic in the country is changing. Assimilation and powerlessness have failed.

ConCalls: DDM Goes Down For #elxnfraud

The Prime Minister’s first attack dog on the RoboCon file, Dean Del Mastro, has been found guilty of election fraud in 2008. The courts haven’t really caught up fully with the Conservatives’ election frauds of 2011, but they’ve already convicted Michael Sona after accepting Andrew Prescott’s worthless, immunized testimony about Pierre Poutine. Poutine’s actions had been defended by Del Mastro at the behest of the Prime Minister, in 2012.

Could a responsible country like South Africa, or New Zealand pick up the slack please?

#BlueDot Tour in Regina

The Blue Dot Tour

David Suzuki came to town last night with musical and other intelligent guests on the stage. They gathered a crowd in the Centre of the Arts to show public support for a constitutional amendment, giving air and water protections like 110 other countries have already done.

The Blue Dot Tour

The method set forth is to get City (and town) Councils to pass these rights, then provinces, and overwhelm the federal government with requests until every democratic party supports the movement.

The Blue Dot Tour

Royal Wood, musicians from Blue Rodeo, economist and Regina musician Brett Dolter, Severn Suzuki among others.
