The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is set to open its doors next month.

However, the choice of what artists will perform at the opening ceremonies is causing problems.

Museum officials apparently rejected a suggestion of Metis legend Ray St. Germain.

That has the Manitoba Metis Federation threatening to boycott the ceremonies.

APTN’s Matt Thordarson has the story.

  1. Frankly I don’t care about arguing over who performs at the opening. I won’t be there. My worry is about content. And it’s a real worry. I don’t believe that the Holocaust deserves a permanent display because we get movies about this all the time and it seems too many have not learned from this at all. I want to see a huge bit about Palestine and the Apartheid there in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip concentration camp. These are today’s human tragedies and they’ve been ongoing since, at least, 1917 with a huge problem in 1947-8.
    Also, I like to see more about the Native American genocides in the USA and in Canada. We get bits and pieces but no movies really about this Holocaust.
