Oh, you were talking about the Feds, not First Nation gov'ts....I agree, the is no democracy in the MAA.
Govts need not be democratic for them to do business with each other, they can deal just fine with dictatorships.
I don't think the MAA is like a dictatorship.
We did plenty of business with Ghaddafi in Libya.
I certainly wouldn't compare any part of the Canadian Gov't to Ghaddafi.
Aboriginals are politically handicapped, they have nowhere to turn for redress because their own leaders can ignore them because aboriginals have few democratic political mechanisms to force their leaders to change, so they don't change.
I see you missed my post.
But you are semi correct, but the problem is usually the Feds...
The case of James Gabriel, a deposed Council member, where the Feds and Gabriel got a Court order, to reinstate him. After he was soundly defeated in a free election, by 61%.
In that case, the Feds made an end run around NATIVE democracy.
You really should try and learn something about the First Nations, before you make all these silly posts or yours.
Canadian govts are restricted by what they can do by treaty.
Yep, but that hasn't stopped them from playing end runs around the contracts.
Govts need to be pushed, so aboriginal leaders and the DIA have found ways to stifle or ignore dissent to allow the current corrupt system to continue.
I agree. And you just keep helping them do it.
Way to go. Thanx for undoing all my hard work.
