The Harper Government recently passed Bill C-45, which among other things, has basically shit on Aboriginal rights and used the treaties as toilet paper. Naturally, a large number of Native Americans in Canada are a little upset. Fuck Harper. In addition to getting fucked over on treaty rights, one of the articles of the Canadian Constitution says that Aboriginal leaders must be consulted on any decisions involving Canada's resources. One of the items in C-45 is more-or-less summed up in the following picture that's been floating around my Facebook feed for a while: Which is somewhat misleading, as the ACTUAL number of protected waterways in Canada has gone from 2.5 million to 159. But the point still stands: Fuck Harper. Chief Theresa Spence is protesting this new legislation by going on a hunger strike. Because seriously, Fuck Harper.
