MNN. Dec. 13, 2-13. TransCanada Corp.’s Energy East’s pipeline wants to steal our resources and transport it through 180 Indigenous communities. According to international law the true natural people of these territories must be consulted and give our consent. The Corporation of Canada touts this theft as a “nation-building heist”.
We have to give our consent to develop pipelines, oil and gas projects, mines and electricity generation. They want to steal $650-billion worth of our resources in the next decade, which we never surrendered!
Indian Act corporate “Injuns” want a cut of the $12-billion stick-up. These shameless crooks gathered in Gatineau, Que. to scheme how they would help their corporate puppeteers carry out the trans-Canada highway robbery.
They hired long-time quisling, Phil Fontaine, the former selected head of the government owned Assembly of First Nations. He’s one of the well-paid swindlers with huge off-shore bank accounts. He’s going to try to brainwash us like him. These carpetbaggers will flee rather than face us for their treachery. Does Phil carry a big bag of money to give to “the right people” in our communities?“NB Mi’kmaq chiefs got SWN Contracts”.
Criminal Injuns have no treaty rights, resources or land. Only us natural sovereign inherent people do. We opposed Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline in British Columbia; blocked logging roads in Quebec and mining roads in Ontario; and shutdown Southwestern Energy Co.’s shale-gas fracking in New Brunswick. Fraudulent agreements with government agents [band councillors] are already in place, which we knew nothing about.
Since we own it all, they should wait for us to tell them if we will give them anything! We demand payment for everything they owe us. Nothing more will be taken until the debt is paid in full.
Former prime minister Paul Martin is pushing education. Before we talk, we want to ‘learn’ what they are doing with our ever-growing $600 trillion Indian Trust Fund. We are the fastest growing race in Canada. We refuse to be a slave labor pool for these gangsters who washed up on our shores bringing nothing with them except lies and diseases! If anyone needs education, it’s them! Like the truth about us and our inherent rights to everything on Great Turtle Island.
These multinational energy companies should be facing us women, the “progenitors” of the soil of Great Turtle Island and everything above and below it.
Phil, when did you put on a skirt to sneak into the Council of Women? Back stabbing shysters like you have no business trying to sell our Mother.
Philly, you will be singing those ‘Bye bye, baby blues’ on your way to the jail in the Fatherland with your corporate masters!
We won’t miss you. “Having to lose, hatin’ to lose/guess I got a lot to learn/all of my friends have lost now and then/I guess it’s just my turn”. The Judds. “Bye, bye. Baby Blues!”
