The View Up Here looks at the avalanche of Federal laws from Emperor and the Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC) aimed specifically at First Nations and indirectly at all Canadians as they try the old divide and conquer game once more. The novelty this time is the dividing is mostly aimed at First Nations themselves in some instances. The attempt to turn non-Indiginous Canadians against First Nations is not new however, far from it.
First Nations Financial Transparency Act (Bill C-27)
First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act (Bill C-33)
Don't these sound noble and enabling? We've seen this act from Emperor consistently. Like the "Fair Elections Act" and the "Protecting Canadians From Online Crime Act". Neither of which do anything like the title claims.
Joining me will be Rachel Snow, an Indiginous consultant, researcher and analyst who is legally trained with more than 20 years experience involving all matters First Nations related. Also joining me will be Judith Sayers, a former Chief of Hupacaseth First Nation, a professor at University of Victoria, a business and law degree holder (doctorate of law), negotiator, consultant and honored Bora Laskin Fellowship of Human Rights winner.
What does the future hold for the Assembly of First Nations? Has self-governance for First Nations gotten closer or further from reality under the Harper regime? What role does the Federal Court and the Supreme Court have in the scheme of things? We will talk about all these things and where the CPC gang is trying to steer Turtle Island and all of its inhabitants. There is only one group left that has any say over the air, land and water. And that group is First Nations.
