Happy Birthday, Canada

If you think Stephen Harper was good to Canada's Indigenous peoples, come walk a mile or 1000 in my mocassins. Anyone can say the words of a speech written by some paid speechwriter. But it was an empty apology, nothing changed, funding was slashed, programs suffered or died. Aboriginal rights and title were ignored and trodden on, as were hundreds of murdered and missing aboriginal women and children. Harper refused to sign on to the United Nations Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Harper alone set the relationship between the govt and indigenous peoples back decades.
I saw a Tshirt the other day that said, 'Think you can trust the government? Ask an Indian'. That's Harper's work.
