Investment chill coming to BC: Horgan embraces UN’s race-based policy on First Nations

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Canada’s prospects for international investment dollars have been on a the decline since 2015 when the NDP won in Alberta, followed by the Trudeau Liberal win federally. Now in 2017, we have a Green backed NDP government in BC. 

If you thought Notley's war on the oil patch or Trudeau’s carbon tax was the ultimate investment chill, Premier Horgan just one upped them, bigly.

In what promises to be a massive obstacle for the 97 per cent of British Columbians who want prosperity, the BC government embraced and recognized the UN Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UN-DRIP).

In what is simply more global governance by the globalist UN, the impact on BC and Canada, will be felt far and wide.

In his announcement, Premier Horgan stated:

“We are at a pivotal moment in our province. We can see a path to meaningful reconciliation and a true government-to-government relationship.”

A government to government relationship suggests BC must now treat First Nations like another country or jurisdiction, entitled to all the negotiating rights a sovereign government would hold.

This is a recipe for disaster, and no First Nations community suffering from a lack of opportunity stands to gain anything from it.

Watch as I explain why Horgan and the NDP agreed to this move, which gives them cover for their opposition to energy projects like Site C and the Kinder Morgan Pipeline expansion.

Please note that Notley is not so omnipotent as to be able to cause the international price of oil to crash. This sort of nonsense is what cause that special kind of ring that says “at this URL be much nonsense and perhaps even brainwashing”.

The Canadian government has treaty obligations to numerous FN groups, and does not have the right to treat non-crown land as crown land, or to otherwise thieve or dispossess FN groups of what was agreed upon long ago. Moreover, in the meantime, various abuses and misunderstandings related to interpretation or application of those treaties in the last century should not serve as precedent for further abuses – a principle that has been generally upheld by the courts for some time.

Yes, if every FN treaty could be totally steamrolled, more shareholders and also the public purse would have more money. And yes, that would probably mean jobs.

But to my knowledge, no one is going hungry for the lack of that resource exploitation, and the general preference in Western tradition and law is to respect the property rights of both individuals and groups, and to honour AT LEAST the minimum obligations agreed to in a treaty.

Also, BC has already indicated in almost every possible way that they do not want Alberta oil transported through newly built pipeline routes across pristine nature. There is a pipeline to the south and it will cost more money to get there. In the meantime, funded oil co propagandists may additionally contribute to the demonstrated provincial independence to assert rights over land decisions (which is constitutionally guaranteed) in the process of doing what they would have done anyways: upholding their higher valuation of environmental goods in their own province than the average Albertan attributes to the value of the environment in some distant place.

“Say Anything John” is turning out to be just as racist as Obama!
At this rate, between him and the rotten potato in Ottawa, Canada will be ripe for take over by China! Haven’t we already seen Chinese Warships on the West Coast?
Just sayin’

Friends of ours relocated to Ecuador five years ago, love it. and say they’ll never come back here. They just mentioned meeting a wealthy retired businessman from Ottawa who arrived there with his wife earlier this year. Ecuador has an excellent healthcare system, a favourable taxation rate for foreigners and there’s a large North American ex-pat community there.

When will the left understand that people who have nothing left to lose do pretty bad things to those who took it all.

So the UN will be pushing for the rights of Yadzidis and Copts now? LOL , yeah i know, it will never happen. And the second their Chinese masters tell the NDP to ignore the natives , they will not give a damn about this.

Canada needs to get rid of the Indian act, and treat aboriginals just like everybody else.

This is going to be interesting to watch this play out , as the Chinese have made deals , and are making more deals with the federal government for natural resources in bc
Bc is totally screwed , no matter which way it turns out
And it’s all on the voters head

Since when is it the UN’s business to stick their nose into what Canada’s provinces are doing or want to be doing. It looks to me that with the UN & Trudea’s push to consult with aboriginals on every project, everything of importance to our economy is now at stake & the NDP/Greens killing every big project & Trudeau wanting to kill small businesses with his new tax policies, Canada will become a have not country quicker than we think. Thank goodness for the small business owners who are not letting this happen without a damn good fight. I am much encouraged by what I am hearing on talk radio & the newspapers.

Getting thoroughly disgusted with the racist, segregationist, globalist, and misogynistic politicians that we voted in. I used to be a proud Canadian, now I’m just a Canadian…on paper.

Wife and I are considering leaving – just need to find the right place.

Canada is the new Sweden and literally stands for nothing today.

You’re probably right, Canadian Mongrel, but you must remember, in order for anyone to care about what anyone else thinks of them, they would first have to respect that person’s opinion.

Maurice,

Well stated, but of course you realize that Hollywood Indians will call you an apple.

As a Metis person, this leftist loony can keep his damned nose the Hell out of my life, but he won’t!!! Leftist loonies are destroying Canada. In fact I believe they’ve already taken us beyond the point of no return. There is no fix for what ails Canada, humanly speaking, short of a civil war. What we really need is a God intervention.
