I am tuuhuk for all life on the Mother, Canada’s colonial practices have long extended far beyond the genocide of the Indigenous land owners.
The key words behind colonial entities are exploitation, acquisition, expansion, unequal powers, superiority, inferiority, they refuse to compromise with the indigenous land owners, as we have and are seeing in these present times. They were created to exploit wealth from the indigenous land owners property, in that extraction if the land owners property is destroyed that basically is not the problem of the crown, because it was never theirs to begin with and they certainly do not have to live here.
Are you comfortable having an entity that kidnaps children, institutionalizes them where they are tortured, raped, abused and many murdered, then covers it up and disguises it as a ‘free eduction’ generously provided at tax payers expense to the ungrateful Indians, covers it up, destroys evidence and lies about it today. Are you really comfortable with that mechanism unilaterally making the decisions that effect you and your families future and well being?

We have said NO continually to this colony only to have our government’s dismantled and people killed and seriously harmed and despite this our answer is still NO and will always be NO! They won’t take NO for an answer so what does that make them?
NO, my territory is not for resource exploitation and destruction, it is here, the Mother is here for us, for the life that exists on her, for us to sustain ourselves and enjoy the one thing we actually do possess, ourselves and our lives.

There is no treaty between our people and that government, the stewardship of my inherited territory is not theirs, it is ours, colonial entities are not qualified for that task.

Enbridge Energy has just reported that their Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline is being shut down because they have spilled over 5000 gallons of oil. The spill happened in Saskatchewan, Canada, and it is not yet clear what has caused the leak. Enbridge has reported that the spill occurred at one of their pumping stations but some of the oil has sprayed onto nearby private property.
This latest spill is yet another example on why Enbridge should focus a lot more time on pipeline safety instead of rushing and pushing through massive amounts of pipeline expansion projects throughout Canada and the US.
In fact, Enbridge is currently trying to gain approval in both canada and the US to expand the Alberta Clipper pipeline. They want to increase pressure on this pipeline from 450,000 barrels per day to 880,000 barrels per day!
The Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline is the beginning point for…
