    1. ....Sir John A. Macdonald was also a racist who disdained Chinese rail workers, the very same men who helped build his national dream, by imposing a discriminatory head tax on each of them. And it was Macdonald whose policies of forced starvation helped clear First Nations from the prairies in order to build that railway. Indeed, James Daschuk from the University of Regina argues quite cogently in his book, Clearing the Plains: Disease, Politics of Starvation and the Loss of Aboriginal Life, that Macdonald's starvation policies led to the deaths of thousands. As Daschuk explains: "For years, government officials withheld food from aboriginal people until they moved to their appointed reserves, forcing them to trade freedom for rations. Once on reserves, food placed in ration houses was withheld for so long that much of it rotted while the people it was intended to feed fell into a decades-long cycle of malnutrition, suppressed immunity and sickness from tuberculosis and other diseases. Thousands died."

    Yet it is certainly not the first time we as Canadians have shut our eyes to the past transgressions of politicians that we want to idolize.....

    2. Following the grisly discovery of the remains of 751 people, mainly indigenous children, on the grounds of the Marieval Indian Residential school in Saskatchewan, it won't be surprising that there would be thousands of "hits" if every inch of the ground in Canada is searched with ground-penetrating radar.

    Then Canadians could no longer shut their eyes to past transgressions by their country's colonial and post-colonial authorities including their first prime minister, Sir John Alexander Macdonald. The bodies of those criminal politicians should be dug up to "hang 'em high." :eek:

    Similarly, a thousand times more bodies could be found across Canada's southern border, where early European settlers stole a whole country from the natives and drove them to near extinction, if every inch of the ground is searched with ground-penetrating radar. o_O

    Why in the world do you consider it “their” land?

    The earth belongs to those who currently occupy it, nobody is entitled to it.

    lol

    They were weaker so we’re replaced as is the natural law.

    Silly whiney liberals.
