Never met a native that caused me much trouble at all actually.

I dont think this is about the average guy . Its more the national politics of it


Me either. And you make a good point about it being more politics than anything. Makes me think of my youth when I was a dues paying union member at a meeting. It was always the guys at the head table ranting about rights and what was due. Stirring the pot as much as they could to get the membership all fired up.
But even as a pup way back then, I realized that it was all those guys at the head table that always got a paycheque even when the guys they fired up with rhetoric got crumbs in strike pay if they were lucky.
Chief Stewart has never got a pay cheque from something he produced himself. At the teat of the taxpayer always. To me, he is a FN clone of David Suzuki and just as much of an opportunist fraud.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

Look at the mess those Dakota idiots made . Protesting working people. They were lucky Trump wasnt president.


you are quick to comment on the camps those natives were forced to leave behind as militarized US police marched on them with armoured vehicles, but nothing about the 220,000 gallons of oil recently spilled 300km east of the DAPL camp thanks to the keystone pipeline.

I have a feeling you'd never support First Nations regardless :smt045

[quote="Chyren"]Here we go again....another anti-First Nations thread.

How about going down to your local reservation and speaking to real people about their real issues?


Because there's a "No Trespassing sign" at the entrance to the reserve.

They will get their way with the current Government, Trudeau won't tell them enough is enough. He will just give them as much as they want as the purse has no bottom in his world!

Theres always going to be spill potential, whether it leaks from a pipeline and they clean it up, or its transported by truck or train, there are still accidents. Difference is usually with truck or train accidents comes with fatalities. The Keystone pipe line moves 1.1 million barrels of unrefined crude a day. That's 46,200,000 US gallons moved daily, or what they spilled the "1" day was .48% of daily transport. This amount of movement would take 5500 trucks a day to move the same capacity.
