Totem

For the natives we have had a rocky history with them, we moved them from their homes many times, we straight up gave them deeds to land then got them cheated out of it from some white man trading some fast cash for the deed, and then we went around killing some, and then we tried to teach them English in the residential schools. although Compered to our past we have done a lot for them like they are being supported by our tax dollars, and they still have some land that they can do whatever they want with (Eg colony farms). but when is it enough? We have been supporting them for a really long time and i don’t think we should support them anymore. I mean take the Jewish for example, throughout all of history they had been taken over by multiple country/ empires, the worst being Germany and did they get any compensation for it?! NO! or take America as another example they felt that they had to do a Manifest Destiny and they went around slaughtering the natives (they also wanted to take Canada and Mexico) and do you see those survivors complaining about what happened… well i have not. So in my opinion Canada just needs to end everything on benefits, if you are an able body man or woman you should be able to work for what they need. (welfare and stuff like that is good and bad… this is hard to explain)

    Wow. Pretty strong ideas, Owen. I challenge you to find out more about how the First Nation’s are surviving and thriving and trying hard to not be “wards of the state” under the Indian Act. Also, the Jewish people were compensated in many ways. Look it up on reputable sites. Keep your mind open and look for more information on these ideas so you can stay informed and factual.
