  1. There were comments, but they were not posted, so I will try again!

    Did anyone actually read the senator’s comments and the context in which they were made?
    Maybe try it!

    She said…..
    “The leaders of the day called it “forced assimilation,” but I don’t believe that was Trudeau’s (Pierre) intent. I think he just wanted us to be Canadians together. His wise words still ring in my ears 48 years later, to the effect of “whose mountains, whose rivers, whose valleys?” He wanted us to enjoy them together as Canadians, with the freedom that the ability to make our own decisions and use our own money provides. Private property, home ownership, the choice of where to live and how to practise and enjoy our unique cultures are cherished values we all share.
    I am simplifying the concept here, but basically the white paper was a one-time financial compensation of the treaties and land claims to be paid to every indigenous man, woman and child in Canada in an equal amount to each that would reflect the fair value of the day, to be calculated in consultation with everyone affected. The concept was to trade your status card for Canadian citizenship and all move forward together, sharing the same schools, hospitals, natural resources and social services and each of us preserving our own culture, in our own time, on our own dime, all with proper input from those involved.”

    Accuracy in journalism matters when it comes to credibility.
