  1. For many years I have worked and learned of native history around Niagara……moving west I found peoples dislikes for natives were very strong…..how great of a job our government did with their propaganda against the biggest jewel Canada has…..our native brothers and sisters their culture, knowledge ……on Canada day I watched Justin Trudeau and his wife show the biggest disrespect to all Canadians by shedding their shoes and entering a ceremonial teepee……they brought no gifts….never mentioned why the teepee was erected(after attempts stopped by police)…..Trudeaus lies to Canadians in order to get elected is an insult to all of us…..his tears are not real….how can a man given millions of dollars to other countries when native children do not have clean running water in their homes. I honestly believe he is part of a group of wealthy that have no empathy, compassion, integrity, honesty or plain common sense. Our governments should be treating every child they stole from their parents and torchure in residential schools…..they say they will give them $25,000 each as compensation….this is not acceptable…unless Muslim children like khadfi deserve more for their torture….our government needs to step up and give the taken ones….first a house to make their home..next rehabilitation for those who turned to drugs ….and then the $25,000. to help them start contributing/working in their community……a referendum and the true facts needs to happen now……..then the inquiry for the murdered women can go forward…..as the hell’s angels who were running the pickton farm needs to come to light…..and the fact a US intelligence agency was paying the bill(Wally opal stopped the info about the angels from being part of the inquiry…covered up by mounties and police) the facts are emerging in the us on documents and by whistleblowers……why an intelligence agency….because they were photographing some of our politicians and others to be blackmailed and there are many ……any whistleblower coming out first will be considered a hero…..this inquiry needs to continue until all this information comes out…it is no wonder they are having a hard time filling the board itself with their own puppets to help shut this down before the corrupt pay their dues……..sick people….read picktons book…..it reads in a different light with this new knowledge….and it says much about opal……

  3. Actions speak louder than words Trudeau.

    Will your apology carry some weight with positive actions ?

    Or ring Hollow like Harpers 2008 apology.

    Time will tell.
