Justin Trudeau promises that if elected PM, he'll review laws "imposed on First Nations people by Stephen Harper."
This promise betrays not only a misunderstanding of how the parliamentary system works, but a troubling attempt to racialize Canadian politics. Liberals used to stand for equality before the law, not two-tiered justice.
If Justin wants to improve the lives of ordinary First Nations people, he should vow to abolish the racist Indian Act.
Among other things, it takes away the rights of any Indian on a reserve to make his own last will and testament!
Instead, Trudeau opposes new legislation that simply compels chiefs to be more transparent about their salaries and other business.
Sounds great -- but not to Justin.
