First of all, natives comprise about 3 or 4 percent of the general population, but make up almost 25% of the prison population. SO, to give the one’s who aren’t in jail a chance to better themselves, the Government is paying natives a form of welfare, or unemployment, to take courses and skills training, so they can qualify for jobs.

Guess what?
The Indians will take the money, but say that going to a school, or trade school, is a form of “workfare,” and they consider that DEMEANING!
When is the Canadian Government going to realize that “tough love” is the only way to treat these people.
Kick their asses off the reservation, then close the reserves and let them fend for themselves.
Seems simple to me.
The way I see it, anyway!
