At least, that applies to those I've seen.

As for this being part of our heritage, not sure what that implies or is insinuating.
The native leaders have been nothing but noble throughout this situation. None of my native friends have been disrespectful or supported burning down churches and vandalizing statues. The only ones who are a small number of white activists who think they know what native people actually want. Unfortunately, they are disparaging native people by supporting violence in retaliation.

Here is a good article the Victoria Times Columnist by a first nations leader that's worth reading: https://www.timescolonist.com/opinion/o ... 1.24330571

Yes - given how DUMB it is to burn down churches and pull down statues, this HAS to be the work of white Leftists. There is no other group this collectively stupid in Canada. Talk about such horrible disrespect for our First Nations and Indigenous in this country.
Justin Trudeau- racist, elitist, liar. What a sick piece of garbage.

If people were burning down Mosques after 9/11 or Synagogues I think Justin Trudeau would have been more vocal.

You don’t give a care in the world about natives. The church burnings in the okanagan were likely carried out by a native and rightfully so.

If you're correct in your accusation, the native(s) who did it showed total disrespect for their culture - and for their elders.

Whoever did it needs to be tracked down, arrested and thrown in jail for arson.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.
