Maclean's magazine uses dead Aboriginal teen to attack the Conservatives

Dean SkoreykoRebel Blogger

The depravity of the Media Party knows no bounds as Maclean's magazine proves by running excerpts from NDP MP Charlie Angus’ book:

It was a simple speech, but her heartfelt determination genuinely touched people. The news coverage across Canada became the story of the 13-year-old girl who had never seen a real school and had stood up to the minister of Indian Affairs. Speaking to the media afterward, she related the daily humiliations of being educated in substandard conditions. “I told [Strahl] that we will not quit until every First Nation child has a school that they are proud of, that they can call their own.” In terms of the political impact, Shannen hit it out of the ballpark

Shannen Koostachin was killed in a car accident before her 16th birthday in 2010. The campaign for Indigenous education, renamed Shannen’s Dream, continued. Eventually, Ottawa agreed to fund a new school, which opened on Sept. 8, 2014.

And for Angus to use this dead teen who once lived with him for a year as a political weapon tells you everything you need to know about him.

I can concur Winnipeg is indeed very racist, but I would also argue that Manitoba has almost the exact same thing going on in every developed, mixed area. The NDP fuelled racist division to keep Brian Pallister and the MPC out of office by constantly antagonizing aboriginal bands against the ‘white establishment’ which the MPC allegedly represent. The NDP also campaigns specifically for ‘perimeter votes’ because that is where most people in Manitoba live; Within the borders of the Perimeter Highway which surrounds Winnipeg. Combine this with the NDP’s race-baiting campaign strategies and add 11 years of it, and voila; You have racist division which makes all of Manitoba appear to be straight out of pioneer times. We even get the occasional outbreak of highway men which the RCMP have to go deal with. Thankfully that doesn’t happen very often…

Wasn’t it MacLean’s that said that Winnipeg was the most racist city in Canada too? I don’t even look at this rag mag anymore, it’s so full of lies, and garbage. I don’t know why anyone would take anything they print, as even being slightly based on truth. I guess that garbage sells!

What a shocker, a progressive using the tragedy of another person for their own personal gains and idealogies.
If Charlie Angus actually has any decency or respect for Shannon Koostachin he would work towards abolishing the Indian act and help hold corupt aboriginal leaders accountable.

Just remember, Charlie Angus has a riding which contains Attawapiskat. Look at how he handled that and then judge his willingness to stick up for aboriginal rights.

IMO he belongs in jail with Theresa Spence.
