The word "genocide" means to kill off an entire ethnicity, an entire race.
Did you hear that Canada has committed a genocide? Justin Trudeau just made it official.
No, he's not talking about Aboriginal people centuries ago, when European countries first set foot in North America and had wars against the local tribes they encountered. No, he means Aboriginal women who have been killed in crimes in the past several decades.
He calls that a genocide because part of what I call the Indian Industry — a partisan committee of lawyers and activists, feasting for years on $100 million gravy train — said that's what is was.
Really? Well, there’s an old Liberal named Romeo Dallaire. He’s a former General. He served in Rwanda, where there really was a genocide 25 years ago. And he has denounced the use of the term "genocide" in this report, and now, by Trudeau.
What's been happening is a crime wave. But it’s not a racist crime wave.
The RCMP has done exhaustive research into missing and murdered Aboriginal women, looking at data that goes back nearly forty years.
TONIGHT I'll take you through their findings in detail, but here's the gist:
In Canada, police solve fully 88 per cent of murders of Aboriginal women – nearly identical to their solve rate for non-Aboriginal women.
Over the last 35 years, out of 20,313 murders in Canada, 1,017 of those were Aboriginal women. That’s a lot. But I’m sorry — that’s not a genocide.
Who killed these women? The answer is tragic and sad:
Their husbands did. Their boyfriends, other family members, other friends.
But there’s another point, and it’s hard to say, but we have to:
Most of the killers of Aboriginal women have been convicted of violent crimes before. And yet they were dumped back into the community by the justice system — earlier than white criminals would be — as a result of Canada’s affirmative action criminal justice system.
But calling it a genocide allows Trudeau to keep the grievance industry going.
It’s easier to rail against genocide and talk about how we're all guilty of racism than to tackle crime, alcoholism and unemployment.
Trudeau should prove he cares by fixing these real problems. Not lying about it — and making your white liberal lawyer friends rich.
NEXT: Lindsay Shepherd was one of the witnesses who testified at today's meeting on Parliament Hill about the possible resurrection of Section 13, the censorship provision of the Human Rights Act.
What happened at today's committee hearing was shocking, and she'll tell us all about it.
