    Justice doesnt exist here, it only exists after death with almighty God. You cant escape His justice and will get what you deserve.

    "For me, I don't see that in Quebec…" Of course you don't, you're white! You've never experienced what they do throughout their lives. You go to a hospital and press the button or scream and they come running for you. This is one tiny snippet of her life and the lives of other Natives. Systemic racism will never be witnessed by you, because it's all behind closed doors.

    Of course they decide to sue, of course it's all due to "systemic racism". Of course: there's money to be made here!!
