    It's simple,the land, all of it belongs to Canada,not the natives.This is 2020 not 1720.There should be no special treatment for anyone in this country as we are all equal under the law.The natives always want special treatment but refuse to pay taxes or follow Canada's laws.

    No solution. Democracy is about trying to please the minority and all parties. That is almost impossible to accomplish sometimes.

    Why no arrests? A power pole lit on fire, roads torn up, police car demolished etc. If I lit a power pole on fire on my street what do you think would happen? Stop this weak leadership and start enforcing the rule of law. I don't care if you are jesus with a halo, you shouldn't get away with destroying public utilities.

    OK! Your ancestors constitution is not much younger than some treaties. Does anyone whine about a constitution so old as the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms and that maybe the time has come to give all the land back to the natives? After all , it' a very old constitution. Why should it matter now???

    This lawlessness is only going to end up with pushback and these radical activists are going to take their communities DOWN together with them.

    Sure they could have prevented things from escalating in the first place. Obviously the Natives don't trust people who lie to them or cops that do nothing about vandalism.

    You can't have different rules and taxes applied based on birthright…

    You essentially create two classes of people and this always ends badly for everyone.

    Let’s hand all control to our First Nations population and see what happens. It could be fun. Has anyone read lord of the flies?

    A Canadian is a Canadian. Trudeau said.
    Munk debate. I guess that’s nonsense. Don’t give up your guns. You might need them.

    The colonization never ends . Canada is the biggest colonizer in modern day. Alot of the forest devastation happened in the Amazon is due to Canada's mining companies like Belo Sun
