~*Official Canada Thread of Good Governance and Unnecessary Apologizing*~


Recommended Posts

NDP on course to win a huge victory in BC.

 

 

 

They've been governing with a minority with support from the Greens.

 

Most exciting is their plan to introduce Quebec-style daycare for $10/day. It's a giant success in QC, and has resulted in more tax dollars being collected (by having more women in the workforce) than it has cost.

So, this is gigantic news. For anyone not aware, Treaty rights give the Miꞌkmaq nation the right to fish forever in their ancestral lands. White fisherman don't like that, since they can only catch lobster part of the year. In reality, the number of Miꞌkmaq fisherman is very low, but it became a racist and political issue. It hit its head most recently with mobs of white fisherman descending on Indigenous fishing areas, and resulted in boats being destroyed, warehouses being burned down, etc.

 

So that's the shot. The chaser? The Miꞌkmaq nation (along with other Indigenous nations) have teamed together and have bought the company that the white fisherman work for, for $1 billion. The white fisherman now work for the Miꞌkmaq people. This is huge news, and a giant victory for Indigenous economic growth in Canada, too. Indigenous bands/nations in the west have also recently taken ownership of some oil pipelines. I think that getting Indigenous people involved in the ownership and operation of resource-based initiatives is a good thing, and I am glad to see it expanding. Long-term, the goal needs to be improved finances of Indigenous people, and less reliance on the federal government (until then, however, funding should be increased, as it's pathetic right now).

***king hell. I hope the LPC ask her to resign over this or we're going to get wall to wall coverage from the CPC running to the media that this proves the LPC should be thrown out in whole. 

 

Even though there was not a peep from them over a Conservative Senator donating to trump which violated a few rules. :|
