Indigenous Nuisance

In all the time I have lived in Canada

I have seen and heard about the indigenous peoples of this country

disrupt the government and business processes

by protests, roadblocks, and rallies.

These events happen with astounding regularity

and woeful consequences

so much so that the sympathy that they received

has been turned to adverse criticism of these peoples.

Now before you start ganging up on me

think of it this way—-

These Indians, bless their survivor efforts,

do spend a lot of time organizing and participating in these

disruptive events to give the implication that they

actually do not work for a living.

The more ugly implication is that they complain about something

when in truth they are asking for something else. 

The point I would like to make is that these Indians

should give something back to Canada

as gratitude for the heavy handouts that they

have received from the working peoples of Canada.

Laws, Treaties, Agreements, Constitution and all that such

do not actually apply to this situation.

Even Human Rights are negated if this is pitted by one group against another.

The rights of Indigenous Peoples is nothing

against the Rights of those

that are responsible for the existence of the country.

What we have here is a conflict between INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS .

One’s rights should be pitted against another.

And as in the case of Indigenous Peoples,

their rights as a group should not be pitted against the majority.

One’s individual  rights supersede any law, treaty or agreement.

A non-indigenous individual’s rights should therefore be pitted

against one indigenous person’s rights.

Not one group against another.

(Confusing, EH?

Not so if you think of YOUR  rights!)
