‘Unequal Justice’

“The lawyer for a drunk driver who killed a family of four in Saskatoon last year has defended ‘alternative justice’ measures after the bereaved family expressed outrage that the driver was no longer in a penitentiary.

“In January, Catherine McKay received a sentence of 10 years for killing Chanda and Jordan Van de Vorst and their children, Kamryn and Miguire, while she was driving impaired.

“Jordan’s father, Lou Van de Vorst, expressed outrage this week after McKay was transferred to a healing lodge for ‘indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} women one month after she received her sentence.

“We’re hurt. We’re angry. We’re upset,” said Van de Vorst. “To me the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. Something’s not right there.” {!}

‘Rationalizing Racism On Reserves’

An Aboriginal Industry article trying to justify racism on aboriginal reserves:

‘Who belongs on a reserve? ‘First Nations’ will decide’ 

“In recent months, the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) community of Kahnawake has re-opened discussion on its controversial {racist} 1984 membership law. The renewed debate has been accompanied by provocative developments: Protests outside homes, eviction notices sent to “foreign” residents, accusations of racism from the {former} Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, and a lawsuit challenging the membership law in court.

‘Conning The System’

Exploiting the racial bias in Canadian sentencing:
‘Man behind violent jewelry store heist delays sentencing at last minute by telling court his mother is Cherokee’ 

“Just when he was supposed to be sentenced for a violent jewelry store heist, Wallace Piercey surprised everyone with a branch on his family tree.

“Piercey’s mother, Ontario Court Justice Michael O’Dea was told, is Cherokee — a fact he hadn’t told his defence lawyer, the Crown or the probation officer who wrote his pre-sentence report.

“That little detail was enough to require a so-called ‘Gladue’ report, a specialized pre-sentence report {only} for ‘indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} people. Continue reading ‘Conning The System’

‘Undermining Public Safety’

Here’s a classic example of how RACE BASED LAW works to everyone’s detriment…

“Last Saturday night, Darrell Moosomin walked away from prison.

“Classified as a dangerous offender, the 54-year-old had been serving an indeterminate sentence in a minimum-security ‘First Nations’ Healing Lodge in central Alberta. Over the weekend, he was granted permission to attend a powwow ceremony under the supervision of an elder.

“He was reported missing at 8:45 p.m. that night…” Continue reading ‘Undermining Public Safety’

‘Judge Validates Aboriginal Racism’

“A Calgary ‘indigenous’ woman who knocked out a Caucasian woman’s tooth while yelling “I hate white people”, didn’t commit a racially motivated crime, a judge says.

“Provincial court Judge Harry Van Harten, in a written decision,
http://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abpc/doc/2016/2016abpc151/2016abpc151.html
said Tamara Crowchief’s motivation for striking Lydia White was not related to racial bias.

“The offender said, ‘I hate white people’ and threw a punch {!},” Van Harten said in his ruling. “There is no evidence either way about what the offender meant {?} or whether . . . she holds or promotes an ideology which would explain why this assault was aimed at this victim,” he said.

“I am not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that this offence was, even in part {!}, motivated by racial bias.” {Unbelievable…}

‘The Chilcotin Massacre’

“I have cousins in several Indian bands and am proud of that connection, and am equally proud of my ancestors who came from all over Europe seeking a better life. But it wasn’t an easy road… 

My great-great grandfather…was murdered by Chilcotin (Tsilhqot’in) Indian bandits in 1864. It’s been a bone of contention with me that Donald McLean’s killers were hailed as heroes by latter-day Chilcotin politicians who demanded an apology from the B.C. government for their trial and execution.

“It vexes me even more that they got what they wanted from Christy Clark in 2014. Many years ago, when I attended an assembly of Chilcotin chiefs held to demand that apology, I stood up and suggested that a good first step toward their goal would be for them to first apologize for the murder of my ancestor by their forebears.

“This wasn’t viewed kindly at a meeting designed to stoke up fire among the converted, and I was branded a ‘racist’ Continue reading ‘The Chilcotin Massacre’

‘Embracing the U.N. At Canada’s Expense’

“A day after the Canadian government said it was fully endorsing the UN ‘Declaration on the Rights of ‘Indigenous’ Peoples’ (UNDR‘I’P), Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly ‘First Nations’ {a ‘nation’ of 220 people} and Chief Lynette Tsakoza of the Prophet River ‘First Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 249 people} said in a joint news release the move was ‘a hypocrisy in the making’.” 

“Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould also delivered a speech on the opening day at the ‘UN Permanent Forum’ WHICH CALLED ON THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TO MAKE ‘INDIGENOUS PEOPLES’ THE FOCUS OF THIS CENTURY.” 

“‘Indigenous’ Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said…Canada would fully embrace the UN ‘Declaration on the Rights of ‘Indigenous’ Peoples’ (UNDR‘I’P) and remove its “permanent objector status” to the document.  Continue reading ‘Embracing the U.N. At Canada’s Expense’
