That’s what I tell people when they start on how we stole the poor natives land! Usually tell them to pick a native family and sign over the deed for your property to them. Get some funny dazed looks from them and then they say something stupid.Every morning it comes over the school PA system that "we are on the unceded land of the MIk'maq people"
I was at a gathering where this statement was spoken by an extremely left thinking caucasian prior to a speech being made. My response was "Give it Back".
I asked the person if they held title to a piece of land, then promptly asked why they didn't return it? Not that easy was the reply to which I responded, sure it is. You can sign that title over to the local band and right your piece of the wrong, today. Until you're willing to do that, you are paying lip service and nothing else, so you may as well not waste your breath until YOU are ready to walk the walk. A dumbfounded look followed but I have never heard that opening line since.
If indeed the person making the statement decided to step up and "right his part of the wrong" then feel free to spout off at will, with a lot more respect earned. Until then, I've got no time for it. I know I've been paying taxes to someone on behalf of the piece I have, so I'd like to know who has been fraudulently stealing my tax money?
We WON THE WAR as did almost every other country on this planet so why do we give so much back to those we spdefeated. Do all the other countries give back so much to those they defeated?????? Same goes for Quebec, they get too much from the feds so why did we bother fighting and defeating them ???? Only in Canada eh
