Anonymous asked: what do you mean canada is killing off their indigenous people? ive always heard good things about canada...

I’m gonna focus on women here.

Fact Sheet: Violence Against Aboriginal Women in Canada. Several quotes:

  • Aboriginal women 15 years and older are 3.5 times more likely to experience violence than non-Aboriginal women
  • 27% of Aboriginal women reported experiencing 10 or more assaults by the same offender, as opposed to 18% of non-Aboriginal women.
  • Between 1997 and 2000, homicide rates of Aboriginal females were almost seven times higher than those of non-Aboriginal females.
  • NWAC’s research indicates that homicides involving Aboriginal women are more likely to go unsolved. Only 53% of murder cases in NWAC’s Sisters In Spirit database have been solved, compared to 84% of all murder cases across the country.

Loretta Saunders, and Inuit student who was researching the disappearance/murder of Aboriginal women in canada, was murdered

Indigenous Canadian women are suffering a murder epidemic:

  • NWAC spent years working on a comprehensive study of missing and murdered native women and girls, called Sisters In Spirit. As numbers increased and awareness of the problem grew, the government cut off NWAC’s grant.

  • “We thought we would be conducting the research another five years and it didn’t happen,” said NWAC President Michèle Audette.

  • Cheryl Maloney, of NWAC’s Nova Scotia chapter, says the government was blatant in its efforts to silence the outspoken group: “The stipulation was that you couldn’t use Sisters In Spirit as the name of the project. They said unless you’re following the new rules, you won’t get any funding. […] It was Prime Minister (Stephen) Harper forcing us to be quiet about the issue,” Maloney said.

  • According to the Canadian Department of Justice, Aboriginal women and girls — from Inuit, Métis, First Nations, and other tribes — are three and a half times more likely to become victims of violence.

You know the boarding school thing that white people did to the native americans? canada too

Aboriginal women represent only 4.3 per cent of the total female population, yet 16 per cent of all female homicide victims are aboriginal.

So yeah, it’s a problem. I’m sure you can find more information through Google, but I think I’ve got a good start here for you.

During WWII, Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.

Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.

Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi’s broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.

Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, In a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.

In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. 
She was not selected. 
Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
