I am asking for your support. It matters not who you are or where you come from. This is a time of change and of revealing all the suffering that we as Canadians, as well as all from around the world, need to know. Racism is great here and it is a cruel place for First Nations. Many are falsely accused and imprisoned and then abused in the jails. The world needs to know what takes place in my ancestral land. I have felt it and I know it.
Change needs to come now. Let there be no more victimization from water police ramming and running their boats over small First Nations’ boats as action in fishing disputes. Let there be no more breaking/abusing people and then throwing them out of a police car or van on a low- traffic road in the middle of winter, where temperatures dip to -40, so that they can be left to freeze to death. Let us not hear of more senseless beatings and horrible abuse targeted against First Nations by Canadian police forces. These are accounts told me as well as ones I witnessed myself. The media too has reported on these incidents. When I was working with First Nations I also tasted the horrors of abusive treatment and threatening and defamatory slurs.
Wherever you are, please open your hearts and act from the soul and in your goodness to help bring about change. Contact Liberal leadership candidate Justin Trudeau (the son of deceased Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau) asking him to help stop police abuse against First Nations and imprisonment of those falsely accused. Justin supports First Nations’ “Idle no More” movement. You can write to him at: Justin Trudeau, House of Commons, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A6 or email him at Justin.email@example.com.
Thank you for taking the time to act. Your support can make a difference.

It seems that with the First Nations working together, and signing a Tready is a big step in becoming a force to be!
Now maybe the harassment is because of this Tready, or because of the Idle-No-More Movement.
