It is simply unconscionable that there are people in this country who do not have safe drinking water, who have deplorable housing conditions (because of faulty construction due to companies taking advantage of government funding and doing only the bare minimum). Where is the accountability?
It doesn't seem to matter whether it's a Liberal or Conservative governments, both are guilty of ignoring what is happening on Reserves. Both are guilty of not getting rid of the Indian Act; an Act that is racist in and of itself.
All we have done over the last 100 years is made First Nations dependent upon government who really don't give a rats ass about them, treaty or not. It's disgusting.
JMHO

They don't have to put up with these conditions. They choose to. As long as corrupt band leaders get free reign with taxpayers money nothing will change. Especially when they are encouraged to remain in locations where there is zero prospects of economic advancement nothing will change.

OH YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Quite true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


Corrupt Native band councils are instrumental in creating the vile conditions on reserves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


For instance.......................


Kashechewan reserve is often in the news...................................


and a few years back a pair of drunken morons were arrested and locked in the local Kash jail for the night............................


and the knuckleheads didnt like being locked up and didnt want to simply sleep it off...................................


so they ripped up their sheets and blankets and set fire to their mattresses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


What LUNATIC sets fire to a LOCKED ROOM he is trapped in??????????????????????????


And the jail is an ANCIENT WOODEN structure......................................... .....


and it burned nicely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the jail cells were each locked with individual padlocks...................................


the kind you buy at a hardware store...............................


and each one took a different key...............................................


and the two clowns who set the fire.............................................


died of smoke inhalation before the keys to all the cells could be found and people evacuated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the usual clique of LIE-beral asshats and supporting media Whores...............................


made a BIG FUSS about third world conditions on the reserve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Until the Harper govt pointed out the BIG PILE of crates on the town dock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The crates contained a BRAND NEW........................................


PREFABRICATED JAIL building.......................................... ........


that had been sitting for some years.................................


because the band council used the money that should have paid for the jail assembly.......................................... .


on something else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just dont ask the band council for receipts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


If you do they will call you a RACIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And natives will then use welfare money and other GOVT TAX FUNDS to fly to Ottawa and rail at govt for not "reconciling" with disappointed natives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!
