‘Using Children for Political Purposes’

Issues like these would best be served by the conversion of reserves into municipalities and the application of provincial standards, as is the case for all other Canadians. As long as there is Constitutional Segregation, it will be ‘Us’ and ‘Them’. Where are the Canadians – including aboriginals – who will do the right thing? P.S. And we consider this current fad of political organizations using children as highly inappropriate, even cowardly:

“This weekend, Autumn Peltier {15 years old} — the chief water commissioner for Anishinabek ‘Nation’ {a lobbying organization with a misleading name}, which advocates for 40 member ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} in Ontario — will return to the United Nations to share her vision for a world in which everyone has access to clean water.

I’m willing to do my best to represent Canada and the ‘indigenous’ {she means ‘aboriginal’} people…”
she said by phone from New York.

{Who asked you to “represent Canada and the ‘indigenous’“?}

“She’s not old enough to get her learner’s permit, but Peltier has been a driving force in the fight to protect water in Canada’s ‘indigenous’ {‘aboriginal’} communities for years. The teenage activist from Wiikwemkoong ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 8,268 people} on Manitoulin Island in northern Ontario has been engaged in the issue since she first came across a boil-water advisory in a nearby Anishinaabe community when she was eight years old {?}. But Peltier said she’s had this connection since she was in the womb, where according to ‘cultural teachings’ {‘mythology’}, one learns to love water as they love their mother…

“It’s her second time speaking at the UN headquarters in Manhattan, having urged the General Assembly to “warrior up” and take a stand for our planet last year. Peltier, who was nominated for the 2019 International Children’s Peace Prize by the David Suzuki Foundation, has spread her message at hundreds of events around the world… In 2015, Peltier attended the ‘Children’s Climate Conference’ in Sweden, and a year later, confronted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about his “broken promises” at a meeting of the Assembly of ‘First Nations’ {‘Indian Tribes’}
“Peltier will help kick off the forum’s conference on ecosystem restoration with a speech drawing on her ‘spiritual knowledge’ about ‘indigenous’ {‘aboriginal’} peoples’ connection to land, water and Mother Earth…”

{Mother Earth?’:
“We are constantly lectured by aboriginal supremacists about how ‘white man’ needs to understand our relationship with ‘Mother Earth’, the way that aboriginals ‘inherently’ do. It will therefore come as a surprise to many that ‘Mother Earth’ as a concept in Canadian culture is European in origin and has virtually no history or connection with aboriginal culture or belief – and that’s according to aboriginal elders and ‘scholars’.”

The Myth of Aboriginal Environmental Stewardship’:
“Nothing is so pernicious as the profoundly-racist notion that somehow ‘indigenous peoples’ are genetically endowed with a special relationship, a spiritual kinship, with nature that makes them superior caretakers of the land … Why is so much weight afforded to what is essentially raw, localized experience? If you strip away its spiritual accoutrements, you’re left with little more than the same wisdom that allows a fisherman to gauge impending weather, or derive crude conclusions on the state of fish stocks… Surely, this is common sense. A person of any race or background can, at least in theory, be equally capable of protecting or destroying the environment.”
