At the Kahnawake Mohawk Indian reserve, it has effectively been illegal since 1981 for a Mohawk to date or marry a non-Mohawk spouse. It’s called "Marry out, get out." You have to get off the reserve, you’re effectively exiled.
Yesterday, attending the Assembly of First Nations conference in Montreal, Trudeau and Muclair were asked about Kahnawake’s blatant racism.
Asked twice, Mulcair refused to answer.
Of course, Trudeau wasn’t short for words -- but they didn't make much sense.
Real leadership requires the responsibility to take stand -- a stand against those, who like some in the Mohawk reserve of Kahnawake, stand unconfronted in the service of repugnant racism.
