After her "cultural genocide" speech, "you simply can't trust Beverley McLachlin to be a fair minded judge"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Canada's judges are getting more political and more radical all the time. Example: The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley McLachlin.

In a recent speech, she accused her own country of committing "cultural genocide.

It's true that individuals throughout Canadian history have committed atrocities against aboriginals. But what McLachlin did was declare Canada itself guilty.

The word "genocide" doesn't fit here.

In fact, Canada's First Nations population is larger now than it was when the country was founded.

Now that Beverley McLachlin has revealed her extremist bias on this issue, how can we trust her to sit in judgement when she's hearing a First Nations related case?

This site was developed with quite a bit of government and academic input, and its focus is historical, not political. ………………………………………………………………………………………. any government input is political

You are right Ezra, the word “genocide” does not fit here.

Jamie said: “I have noticed over the years that a fellow’s objectivity usually goes into a marked decline when his preoccupation becomes his occupation.” Yes. Sometimes referred to as conflict of interest.

“I have worked in and with treaty and land claims organizations since I moved to Nunavut in 1980. "

I will miss your comic relief, Terry, but not your abject stupidity or immaturity. You really need to do something about that…

The SCoC seems to now think it’s a shadow government and that should make some guilty of conspiracy or conflict of interest. I seriously doubt we do not have the laws to charge them. What we have is a lack of spine or will to do it.

We vote for our MP’s. We do not vote for judges. Why are they in charge?

Liza I too learn a lot from different posts.
commented 2015-06-01 21:26:15 -0400
Geez, Terry you do definitely have attitude, but I do not take your insults personally. I am learning a lot from your posts. I hope more people with knowledge which may be contrary to what others think, join in. Glenn Craig, I appreciate your last post as well. I appreciate all of them. I think there have been some thoughtful posts from all different angles. Terry I don’t know what you call honest dialogue, but I think it looks something like this.
commented 2015-06-01 21:03:39 -0400
Rick: You haven’t read it, of course. You read a press release.
But you know what?
You win. My experience has convinced me that there is simply no way to have an honest dialogue with folks.
commented 2015-06-01 17:39:04 -0400
Lots of reading you have given me to do Terry. I had better get on with it.
commented 2015-06-01 15:54:37 -0400
Peter. Thanks for the confirmation of what I’ve been coming to believe about our contrarian “friend” Mr. Rudden. Lalala…..don’t want to acknowledge anything, so just won’t read it! Typical and arrogant! Peter, I will take your advice and simply let him choke on his bias. He complains a lot about FN’s, however history shows that persons like himself who protest every attempt for reconciliation would rather do nothing and let the present situation fester utilizing what ever argument they can dream up, true or imagined.
Kelowna Accord? I’ve read it. This press release from the Paul Martin Liberal Gov’t of the day says it all!

“The press release issued by the Office of the Prime Minister on the November 25, 2005 outlined $5.085 billion in spending over 5 years, but did not set out the means for the fiscal distribution between federal departments, provincial and territorial governments, and Aboriginal groups.”

Translation: We going to throw another 6 billion at the “Indian Industry”, however we’re not going to determine accountability for who is responsible for what and how the money is to be spent.
Further, there was reference for housing, both on and OFF reserves. The housing on reserves is a valid point. Most is substandard even by third world comparison. The sticking point is OFF reserve. (No definition) Does that mean that Canadian Taxpayers would be on the hook for Pam Palmateer’s upscale digs in Toronto? I suspect so. Liberals fervently believe they are “entitled to their entitlements”.

Ron, seem like a decent guys, but on this one, you are simply mistaken. I have worked in and with treaty and land claims organizations since I moved to Nunavut in 1980. Seriously, you need to read a a little more about the history of Canada and its First Nations than you’re going to get on sites like this. There are literally dozens of excellent publications. Here’s a pretty good start: This site was developed with quite a bit of government and academic input, and its focus is historical, not political.

Terry as you know the Treaty of Paris paved the way for Britain to basically claim most of North America and they just plain and simple took what they wanted. You know that. Treaty or no treaties.
commented 2015-06-01 15:22:39 -0400
Terry – They are appointed by the Governor General for Canada, on advice from cabinet, not appointed by the PM alone, as you are suggesting.
commented 2015-06-01 14:46:58 -0400
Deborah. Yep. And the majority of justices were appointed by Harper.
commented 2015-06-01 14:17:24 -0400
Terry – this wench was on the SCOC long before our PM Harper was ever elected.
commented 2015-06-01 14:14:45 -0400
Ron, I’m afraid you’re confused about what country you’re living in.
In the United States, Government was policy was explicit warfare. In Canada, right from the original settlements, the policy was trade and military alliances with First Nations by both the French and the British, culminating in the Royal Proclamation of 1763. Britain never “conquered” Aboriginal Canada; they negotiated a series of treaties.
As for technology: let me recommend a fascinating book to you (it really is an amazing read, trust me.) Fatal Passage, by Ken McGoogan.
commented 2015-06-01 14:00:58 -0400
The truth of the matter is the European settler came here and subjugated the local inhabitants who had inferior technology. The British as they did everywhere generously allowed the folk they conquered to keep their lives. Sure tough times awaited the survivors of the conquest. To the victor go the spoils. That is the way it is and the way it will be. Did bad things happen afterwards? Yes and boo hoo. Now the descendants live separately in reserves sort of apartheid. Everything else is just blah blah blah.
commented 2015-06-01 13:46:06 -0400
Deborah: Excellent plan. We should have the Prime Minister appoint a majority of them.
Oh, wait…
commented 2015-06-01 13:24:10 -0400
This Marxist should be disbarred for her arrogance, her ignorance, and the agenda that she has been trying to shove down our throats far too long for my liking. I think we should clean house on the SCOC, we need judges who are not activists for the UN.
commented 2015-06-01 12:48:55 -0400
TERRY: And that’s the silliest statement I’ve come across in a week or two.
PETER: Don’t worry, convincing people about my point of view isn’t one of my priorities. ;)
commented 2015-06-01 08:23:55 -0400
Peter, I can be convinced of any number of things, and have changed my mind on several issues as a result of input and discussion on this and other conservative sites. That’s why I participate. However, in this thread, I haven’t found much actual, productive discussion; mostly folks just want to enjoy another happy round of uncritical judge and Indian bashing. That’s fine for the folks who come here for that. Those more interested in a slightly more adult take on the issue have swapped a couple of interesting thoughts on the nature and limits of extrajudicial commentary on political affairs and the nature of “Crown” (as opposed to individual) responsibility for public policy. Sorry the more serious stuff wasn’t to your taste.
commented 2015-06-01 08:08:31 -0400
Jamie, Liza, Rick, Glenn, Joan and others. There really is no point in arguing with Terry. You will not convince him of your view point neither will he change his. Yup, Terry, I just swallowed my cranky pills for today.
commented 2015-06-01 07:30:43 -0400
Jamie, that’s a good summary of the usual Rebel/Flanagan/CPC talking points, and it usually ends with “so we should tell them what they need to do.”
commented 2015-06-01 07:07:45 -0400
Don’t know how that happened! :))
2. The guys with the head-dresses won’t accept any responsibility for contributing to the present mess and choose to point fingers and demand more cash.
3. The government bureaucrats and parasites who feed off the status quo would be threatened if the necessary drastic changes were to occur.
commented 2015-06-01 07:04:24 -0400
Liza: "Terry do you really mean that, equating the holocaust with Canada’s misguided treatment in the past of FN’s? "
“Equating?” Uh, no, that’s not what I did. I pointed out that historical injustices leave long scars. I also pointed out in this thread that (a) the scars are still pretty fresh among some damaged people, and there is an entire generation of residential schools are still alive, and (b) the paternal attitudes that gave rise to the residential schools is still very, very much alive.
commented 2015-06-01 07:02:52 -0400
I think the average Indian would like to see the present rotten system change as much as the average Canadian does – and this has been the case for a long time. So, why isn’t t happening?
Three reasons that I can think of.
1.The silent majority on reserves is just as complacent as it is everywhere else in this country.
