Trudeau’s Liberals budget $8.4 BILLION for Aboriginals: See where this money is really going

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

You’ve probably heard of PayPal. It’s the popular online bank, a payment system, really. We use it at The Rebel. So do more than 170 million customers around the world.

But PayPal just cancelled a $3.6 million expansion in North Carolina, costing the state 400 jobs. On account of a "new state law that restricts protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.”

I'll read this law to you. It applies to schools mainly, not a private company like PayPal. It’s not really onerous in terms of gay rights.

But you know where there are NO gay rights? Saudi Arabia and other places where PayPal does business.

I’ll tell you what PayPal would really do with their $3.6 million if they really cared about gay rights…

NEXT: Paige MacPherson from the tax watchdog group Canadian Taxpayers Federation has the latest roundup of NDP Premier Rachel Notley's financial waste this week - and why it's not getting better.

THEN: Political Science professor and Aboriginal affairs expert Tom Flanagan unpacks the contributions to First Nations from Trudeau's budget. There’s a 20 per cent increase in Aboriginal funding, and Flanagan says it will be “very hard to track.” So much for transparency.

FINALLY: I read your feedback to me, good and bad!

It’s not like they actually want to help aboriginals or they would build they schools, water treatment, plants and recreational centers, but who cares about making a few chiefs very right, right?

This is their kickback from the liberals, using our tax dollars! It’s too bad that the money didn’t make it to those on the reserves, who desperately need it. The liberals have succeeded in making it near impossible to escape the poverty, and drug problems. And don’t forget the elder abuse. I’ve heard of elders being shaken down by the younger men for any money they receive. APTN was in full attack mode for PM Harper during the election. It’s so obvious to those paying attention.

PayPal toilet protest. What a weird story. No wonder the CBC was all over it. Maybe PayPal is pulling out because they couldn’t get anyone to work for $9,000 / year & wanted to save face or something.

I’m guessing that Notley’s infomercial was done to insure they had total control. Spending all that money to tell Albertans there’s no money is an example of how the NDP is out of touch with reality. I doubt if they even realised how this would look. Pay freezes for MLA’s is a joke – there are many ways to get around that nonsense.

Gee, all sorts of new money going to “Aboriginal funding” at a time when the Liberals have overturned accountability for their leaders. I wonder how much of that money will find it’s way into Liberal coffers & pet causes. The people themselves are just pawns for the Liberals & their media lapdogs.

Canadian native leaders control the cash. Native reserves get squat.

Rotten to the core and will never change. Welcome to Canuckistan.

Sort of like Trudeau supporting refugees, but yet by his own actions is contributing to the genocide of Christian refugees by refusing them entry.

I worked in the Queen Charlotte Islands for five years , now known as the Haida Gwaii , a name derived by the twits at UBC in Vancouver. I remember being in the Sandspit Airport with all these native people decked out in tribal jewellery and their best duds . When I asked what was the occasion I was told they were holding their monthly council meeting in Las Vegas . The Feds paid for their entire trip and this was a monthly occasion.
