Your often confused reporter is doubly perplexed by all this hoopla over these never ending inquiries into missing and murdered indigenous women.
Here's a typical headline: "The RCMP revealed Thursday that nearly 1200 aboriginal women have been murdered or gone missing in Canada in the past 30 years."
Then there's this: "How an 'unflinching gaze' on missing and murdered Indigenous women might move Canada forward!"
And this one: "Global rights groups to keep eye on Canada's missing, murdered women."
The number of missing or murdered indigenous women in Canada has not escaped the attention of members of the international human rights community, who will keep a close eye on a national inquiry they say is long overdue.LONG OVERDUE FOR WHAT?
Take this headline: "Another inquiry won't help indigenous women!"
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is pretending to address the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women through the public inquiry it announced Wednesday.
And Canadians will pretend to care.
And nothing will change.
Because it never does.
Nothing other than the federal, provincial and municipal governments throwing even more of our money at aboriginal problems. This in addition to the billions of dollars we already throw at these problems every year, in a first-world country where we can’t even get clean water to many native reserves, let alone alleviate the adverse social conditions of unemployment, crime, poverty, lack of education and addiction, that lead to increased rates of violence against everyone, and especially women, both on and off reserves.
Ladies and gentlemen, the author of these quotes, Lorrie Goldstein of the London Free Press, has the answer to this dilemma right in the very words he writes about the problem. "THE RESERVE SYSTEM!"
"This in addition to the billions of dollars we already throw at these problems every year, in a first-world country where we can’t even get clean water to many native reserves, let alone alleviate the adverse social conditions of unemployment, crime, poverty, lack of education and addiction!"That's right kids, it's the 'Reserve System' itself which perpetuates all the ills that have plagued Native North Americans all these years. (Let's face it, Indian culture is a 'stone age' relic that doesn't wash with modern society and the sooner this is recognized and eliminated, the sooner the plight of the Indians will be resolved.)
Folks, ya can't put a bunch of people on a piece of land that is usually out in the wilderness somewhere, give them welfare because there are no jobs, and expect them to make something of themselves ...., when there is nothing to make it from!
The Indians time has come and gone, and the sooner they come in from the cold, the better off they will be!
Oh, I'm sorry about their loss of culture and identity folks, but if it ain't working ....., you have to try something else bunky!
