Canada’s tarnished international image – Indigenous Peoples

Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

I was not aware of this, on this level.  A great read about something that has basically been suppressed in the United States on the issue of Canada and it’s indigenous peoples.

TORONTO – Canada was once viewed as a beacon of enlightenment on the world stage – a leader in the field of human rights and peacekeeping.

That’s an image that has become severely tarnished since a Conservative government was elected two years ago.
Its rejection of indigenous rights, its spoiler role at global warming talks, its failure to investigate the killing or disappearance of hundreds of aboriginal women, its indifference to the plight of a small Cree nation whose unceded territory is overrun by gas and oil development – these are all issues that point to a sea-change in the way Canada conducts its affairs.

I highly recommend taking the 2 plus minutes to view this video.. it is heart rendering, if in fact there is truth behind it.
