Ontario public servants to get mandatory sensitivity training on indigenous people, history

More than 60,000 members of Ontario’s public service will soon receive mandatory sensitivity training regarding the history and experiences of the province’s indigenous people, the Star has learned.

Premier Kathleen Wynne is expected to announce on Wednesday that every OPS employee will receive mandatory indigenous cultural competency and anti-racism training. Ontario’s public servants work in all government ministries from finance to child welfare, agencies and Crown corporations.

Wynne is also expected to further outline mandatory learning expectations in the province’s public education curriculum to include the impact of residential schools, the history of colonization and the role of treaties signed between the Crown and First Nations.

The changes push Ontario toward addressing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) 94 recommendations, released last June, which are meant to incorporate indigenous culture and teaching throughout Canadian society.

Many threads before today on Harper apologizing to first nations and not a peep from flossy in any of those threads...
A leftwing premier starts making empty promises and flossy starts salivating, as if she don't get enough fluffing...
Flossy must be looking for an extra job....

He went on a spamming spree after I hurt his feelings. I bet it was the thread about his Uncles moronic idea to create cultural ghettos. I think hating brown people runs in Flossy's family.

No one's making up anything about you Flossy.

Is it your head injury or drug use that cause your bouts of paranoia?

So uh, will any Indigenous public servants be forced to take this sensitivity training?

Oh cool, yet another opportunity for the leftards to force their revisionist version of history on the younger generation.

Are they going to promote that Indians are better than Muslims? I don't see it going further than than once you look back at the last 150 years of having the opportunity to do do just what is now being proposed. The Indians should be asking for UN Peace Keepers to patrol their borders.

I've read the course outlined in the local high school, who have a FN course, since we have a rez in the region. If she follows that format, it isn't revisionist and quite frankly lacks much of the history it should contain.

Just an FYI, when my sons took courses at Enaahtig learning centre (An Anish learning and healing centre in Victoria Harbour Ont), I made sure they were exempt from the course portion on "Living in a colonial state". The course outline was racist, divisive and quite frankly, one of the biggest problems with healthy integration into modern society, as far as i was concerned.

Coming from a self-confessed troll that is funny, like that qualifies you as being anything close to being an adult..

Perhaps you are unaware that there are Reservations all across the land.

Perhaps that just because I admit that I'm a troll, doesn't negate my ability to have an adult conversation.

If you weren't an idiot, I wouldn't have had to explain that to you.

I was fortunate to grow up on the peninsula of Vancouver Island with the Coast Salish people. Our school was mixed and we often had the elders come to share stories with us. What we were never told about was the true history of the conflict between europeans and natives. I learned some of it from the stories told, from my friends and their parents and the rest cause I'm extraordinarily curious about different cultures.

What about the living in a colonial state did you find not good?

Actually it does as it shows you are childish and embittered little boy who has to resort to trolling to make yourself appear to be the superior person in a (any) conversation. Take away your troll posts and there might be a total of 1 a month that remains and I'm being very generous with that ratio.
You are proud that you get your entertainment by trolling others yet you demand that you not be trolled, you can become a bigger fuktard than that and you *** would have been grass a long time ago if it was not for the special treatment you receive. (rather than deserve)
Only a insecure child rates posts, let alone the way you do. That is one of the best insights at how insecure you are and that your 'trolling abilities' is severely limited to the few people that can't formulate any comeback, let alone one that cuts through your constant stream of bull****.

Coming from somebody that is only a hand holder (at best and ball licker at worst) you would know just what that looks like wouldn't you?

We have a rich and strong oral tradition. It came in handy when making fun of history teachers in high school.

It focused on European colonization as the central reason for all woes. It literally taught the kids to look for racism and be offended by it, whether it was legitimate or not. Mentioned specifically, mascots and sports team franchise names as a means of oppression.

The wife and I never raised our boys to be encumbered by such idiotic and antiquated thinking. It perpetuates victimhood, inhibits success and doesn't move you forward.

You're an idiot, which is the only way you could come to such an erroneous conclusion.

It's quite clear who I troll and why.

Only an idiot would missed it, or even worse, given you a thumbs up for posting such an idiotic opinion.
