Letter to the Assembly of “First Nations.”CANADA

Thursday April 8, 2021

Dear Chiefs, and leaders of Indigenous organizations,

The Bill C-15 preamble wrongly blames Canadian governments for the poverty, racism, colonialism, systemic barriers, and general poor development on reserves through lack of “self-government.” Criminals talk like that, refusing to take responsibility of their own lives. 

Facts show the Chiefs long had their opportunity to escape the restrictions of the Indian Act, but rejected it since Indian Affairs Minister Chretien proposed abolition in 1969. Since, the Indian Act has always been open to abolition.

Colonialism is historical, with many more benefits than not, so it is not colonialism that poverty stems from. Poverty stems from laws restricting thought and action. The proof is everywhere. Cuba is poverty stricken due to its communism. It survives through western infusion. Venezuela was a a free, democratic and thriving country. One of the best before the socialists took over. Now with never-ending redistribution of its producers wealth, Venezuela, despite its abundant oil reserves, went bankrupt. Stalinist Russia had to re-admit capital development in order to get past farming. The same with China. China experienced severe totalitarian restrictions. It now allows some freedom to survive. 

The Chiefs want to have their cake and eat it too with Bill C-15, however, freedom and rights for Indigenous people necessarily reduces power over them. Many individuals from other cultures who have come here not many years ago, thrive far better than on-reserve Indians even though they started in penury, on farms feeding chickens and cows. The difference is freedom based on individual rights. These once poor individuals are far richer than someone who is adept at the professional ropes of dependence. They eventually buy the farm. 

Canada’s Indian leadership should be taken to international courts of justice for crimes against humanity due to an ideology that keeps their members in poverty, chaos, alcohol, addictions, shortened life spans, resultant rape and murder of their women and girls, hunger, and continued murder and killing of youth against youth when lack of hope settles in place of opportunity and health. If you call yourself a “government” then you accept the vast responsibilities of freedom, including private, personal property rights with the responsibility of failure and lawsuits.

If the shoe fits, wear it. But if not, please help me to promote the immediate abolition of the Indian Act above ideology. No rational ideology allows death and destruction as its structure and organization. 

Please respond. Thank you for your time,

—- Ted Harlson

Dear Progressive Conservative government, MPP’s,

It has taken citizens far too long to realize the jackboot attitudes of governing today but as Doug Ford presses down, more people will stand up and then the choice is back to freedom or the applying of full totalitarian controls. This has always been the ultimate choice. We are so far down the statist road; choices are becoming stark.

It was September 6 the secret police created the policy which came in force two weeks later. September 19, 1941, “…any Jew over 6 years old was not allowed in public without a yellow star and permit.” (Much like the health permits being currently discussed in parliament today). The Jews were not allowed in public with the star, “or there would be a 150 Mark fine…..with worse to come.” 

We all know with hindsight what that, “worse to come meant.” 

Government leaders in Canada, stop playing with fire! I know it is not yourselves you expect to get burned due to your many statute barred protections, but you personally cannot escape the havoc and deaths you have created by your heavy hands already. Let people live in freedom and immediately end this political pandemic. People are tired of it.

===============================================================================

Same day from Ray Morand (Toronto, Canada). 

I believe that Hitler had the same problem with religious leaders. Auchwitch, Buchenwald and other such places were developed to handle those problems. To indanger other highway users in such a manner is stupid, negligent and irrisponsible.The use of such a level of force defies belief! What lunatic, at a higher level, authorized this demonstration of intimidation? So a pastor and 2 underage  sons might have been dangerous enough to justify this level of escalation and misuse of municipal property and resources? 

I find it difficult to support any level of government which believes this is acceptable! 

Please respond

From Ontario Canada

Ontario Nurse (name withheld) April 2021

Dear Premier Ford, Health Minister Elliot, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Williams, and MPP Jane McKenna,

Ignore the shrill fear-mongering of my healthcare worker colleagues in this open letter addressed to you:

Do not be guilt-tripped into further issuing lockdowns.  Rather, open up immediately. 

I am a registered nurse with 18-years of experience working on the hospital front line, including ICU, Emergency, and various inpatient departments in many institutions.  Overwhelmed hospitals existed long before Covid.  I have seen elderly people looking rather grey or blue, dumped into closets and common areas, without piped oxygen, many a-flu-season ago working at large urban hospitals with decaying infrastructure and lack of beds.  Working triage during the wicked flu season of 2018 (without a mask, not a sick day took), I remember walls of people crammed into the waiting room due to lack of space and hospital overwhelm daily.  

It is from this context of my experience that I read this letter by my colleagues demanding lockdown and I wonder if they have gotten soft and forgotten what a busy hospital looks like.  Too many days with the ER running at half-capacity through most of the pandemic lockdowns, easily verified through publicly available hospital data, has perhaps set a new standard of leisure time at work.  Frankly, one of the biggest complaints I have heard from doctors during lockdown is excruciating boredom.

The threats of impending catastrophe in our hospitals are utterly unfounded.  The claim that we face another Italy or New York was used to issue lockdowns last March, again in December, and once again today.  Reality never seems to match the modeling and we are in the process of completely discrediting ourselves.  As the saying goes: “Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.  Fool me three times, shame on both of us.”

As politicians, health leaders, and front-line workers, the looming tsunami we truly face is that of the public’s contempt for destroying their lives for no reason.  Trust me, they are waking up.

Signed 

Ontario registered nurse.

Abolishing Canada’s Indian Act long overdue.

Bullet points:

Greater detail is provided after these bullet points.

Bill C-15 

Preamble: Don’t blame Canadians for faulty decision – making chiefs.

ANNEX

Indigenous people of Canada were simply cut off from the European continent’s division of labour and knowledge transfer which caused a time lag in development. Canada fought totalitarian Europe, and recovered quickly through freedom of thought and action. The Indian Act prevents Canadian Indians from these freedoms. Near zero development is kept in place as tribal Chiefs choose the Indian Act governing since 1969 over freedom for its members.  

Article 5 – 7 

Only individual rights can provide the harmony of interests for development and security. 

Article 15

Concept of private property on reserve must be accepted according to UNDRIP article  

Article 20(2) Indian Act must meet UNDRIP requirements. Indigenous governing is not exempt in keeping “colonial governing” as they have since 1969. 

Indian Act, not colonialism has been the main source of poverty and stagnation. Abolition as redress violates no one’s rights.  

Note: Bill C-15 is rushed, vague and therefore open to highly mistaken interpretation which will become a source of agitation and chaos – another Indian Act – to the point of threatening Canadian sovereignty. These are addressed by other Concerned Constituents of Canada’s submissions.  

The following is more in-depth detail of my bullet points. 

Abolishing Canada’s Indian Act long overdue.

For too many decades Canadian Indian’s suffered under legislation called the Indian Act. In 1969 the Indian Affairs Minister proposed abolishing this Act but was met with fierce resistance, protests and violence across Canada. The Indian chiefs stirred the Indian pot to keep this despotic legislation in place. The Chiefs desired the Indian Act as an instrument to leverage political power through compassion and sacrifice of Canadian politicians. Canadian people have been paying for lack of development on Indian reserves since. The following is my letter to the federal committee seeking Canadian alignment to UNDRIP (United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People).

—————————————————————————————————————————-———

Bill C-15. From an individual Rights perspective.

Bill C-15 PREAMBLE:

The preamble refers to injustices no worse than the injustices of totalitarian Europe during WWII, yet Canadians quickly moved past those terrible years, healed, and re-built. 

Those under the Indian Act did not, including native veterans. It was the Indian Act’s monopoly  on the use of physical force that nullified thought, and action of reservation individuals that prevented healing, and rebuilding. 

Continuation of the Indian Act is a major part of limitations for Canadian Indians overall development. Financial institutions for example are not owned by private members, but are held in trust by Council, and Chief. All subject to Indian act restrictions do not have necessary incentives to personally prosper and flourish. Indians, like my parents who left the reserve and status system prospered no matter how poor they were. The humanizing factor of choice is greater off reserve.

Canada developed in a structured, reasoned manner in many ways. Personal ability within a context of freedom enabled citizens to recover quickly from totalitarian Europe. Indigenous people cannot recover no matter what they think or do while under the force of the Indian Act – a legislation they refuse to let go of since Jean Chretien (1969) proposed abolition while he was Indian Affairs Minister. Abolishing the Indian Act would be best policy of reconciliation because it moves towards individual freedom.

Abolishing the Indian Act though an action plan will not abrogate or derogate section 35 of Canada’s Charter. 

Abolishing the Indian Act would be the kindest, most compassionate decision Canada and the Indigenous organizations could make towards healing and opening the way towards genuine development. 

Simply adding more types of laws; Charter, Indian law, International law, etc., complicates what requires simplicity – freedom based on individual rights protection which the poorest would be able to understand. We are talking of real people who need the freedom of choice to think and act to personally build their own private lives. Such reasoned and careful direction is a positive possibility. 

Bill C-15 

ANNEX

Individual rights must be protected always.

My parents were full blooded Shuswap Indians (Squilax/Chase B.C.) whose lands were taken unjustly by the Chief in the 1960’s without compensation. Land surveyors plotted reserve lands according to who lived there at the time. Since my parents were off reserve, they were not counted and the Chief took the land. This was fraudulent practice and no doubt was wide spread across Canada’s 300 + reserves during that time. Such theft may well increase with any  changes of legislation, including Bill C-15. Such positioning may have already started. How?

Consider squatters rights. With the co-operation of the Ontario government, Teranet Inc. has converted Ontario’s 4.3 million land titles from a paper registry to an electronic format. Who on reserves even knows how the Chiefs will allocate, “collective ownership” of property if and when  converting this data method applies to reserves”? 

Off reserve Indians are left out of informed, meaningful negotiations although they constitute a vast majority of the Indigenous population. Many Indian reserves cover vast areas of land but are controlled through nepotism, and benefit only small family groups. 

Bill C-15 cannot exclude urban Indigenous citizens of Canada meaning non-status Indians who have already reconciled their lives, and moved forward. Urban Canadian Indians have thrived without the Indian Act. Off-reserve, no-status people’s lives prove this. 

The Indian Act is the greatest systemic barrier to Indigenous development and should have been abolished when Jean Chretien offered it in 1969. It is the Assembly of Chiefs and Indigenous leaders who retain this unjust, destructive Act. The endless trail of tears will end with freedom. 

Let me offer this solution to solve the government of Canada’s fears of including non-status Indigenous people in Bill C-15. First UNDRIP is non-legally binding, so this entire endeavour is voluntary. I also prefer this Bill not pass, but if it does, solving massive inclusion is possible only by clarifying what rights are and how to acknowledge rights through freedom. 

With Indian Act abolition, I suggest all existing reserve lands that tribal council holds “collectively” be turned into a public corporation under control of Indigenous organizations who cannot sell the lands themselves, but act as stewards. One year after reserves have been turned into Indigenous crown property, that media broadcast unused portions of reserve lands become available for purchase to Indigenous purchasers. Those unused, un-lived in  portions of the reserves can be held available for purchase in limited size and amounts, say in sub-divided plots for a period of say, 25 years (arbitrary). This will give time for as many Urban Indigenous people to “go back home” and purchase a plot of land for themselves – if they wish. Land with existing homes can easily be turned into a form of rent to own, where the band council no longer keeps ownership perpetually while charging rent to Indigenous payers. Private ownership must be an option according to UNDRIP i.e., 25 yr mortgages, where no Indigenous person will be denied the freedom of his beliefs and personal property. 

Some sub divided plots would be eligible for immediate ownership having paid rent most of their lives in their homes. After 25 years, when most urban Indigenous people able to purchase lands, have bought what they want, free and clear title can be introduced, thus evolving once reservation property towards the same status as Canadian ownership before the law. The private property owners can also have the option of turning their owned area into a municipality.  Article 7 and 17 UNDRIP necessitates some form of this.   

Note: Much of Canada’s laws already reflect UNDRIP principles without the need to duplicate internationally what already exists domestically. 

Article 8. Private property will enhance and strengthen cultural tradition.

Article 18. Definition not possible without individual rights underlying the fundamental Harmony of Interest required by the current understanding of Canadian and Indigenous. Individual sovereignty satisfies all involved.

——————————————————-—————————————–————————

Bill C-15 Articles

Measures for Consistency of Laws and Achieving the Objectives of the declaration

5. Individual rights are the most consistent with UNDRIP. I’m offering a mere glimpse.

6 (1) A thought out action plan prior to accepting Bill C-15 to avoid legal chaos, misunderstandings, and delay. 

   (2)  Only freedom based on inherent, (inalienable) individual rights, (UNDRIP’s article 17, 18). can provide a means of just property gain. By contrast, sophisticated, Indigenous use of eminent domain in this area will cause injustice to private property holders similar to what is happening today. See Bill C-222 (expropriation without consultation to private property owners). VOTE NO. 53  43RD PARLIAMENT, 2ND SESSION Sitting No. 60 – Wednesday, February 17, 2021

(4) Abolishing the Indian Act has no downside, but an action plan for this should begin now, even if Bill C-15 does not reach Royal Assent. (See my following comments in ANNEX).

Bill C-15 Article 35. 

Indigenous peoples have the right to determine the responsibilities of individuals to their communities. 

1 No community consensus can replace individual responsibility to his own life. UNDRIP clearly states this. A community (number of individuals) may well have their own practises, beliefs and traditions, but according to Canadian Law, and UNDRIP, such beliefs must not be forced unto someone. nor may someone be excluded by such beliefs. 

2 UNDRIP must equally apply to those very Indigenous groups. Bill C-15 if it passes would apply to Section 35 of our Charter as well. 

3 It would be blatant discrimination if an Indigenous community determines (forces) on an individual, beliefs and behaviour he does not not agree with. Or just as unjust, if an Indigenous band denies off reserve, non-status Indigenous ownership of private individual clear title, property

4 UNDRIP 20: No one may be compelled to belong to an association. UNDRIP Article 18 also applies.

Finally, I’ll add, Canadian leaders need to begin to understand the liberating, and problem solving ability of individual rights before signing international agreements for perceived domestic human relation problems. The Assembly of First nations seeking international solutions means domestic solutions no longer exist or has been exhausted by the bands and they are intellectually bankrupt in this area. 

This is not true. The Indian Act is against all decency and moral living as well as being existentially impossible. Nothing can make it work if its at core, corrupt. Abolishing the Indian Act would solve most of Indian grievances, including and especially those poorest of the poor. The Indian Act is the rotten apple in the barrel and must be severed completely. 

So let us have genuine heart and introduce freedom based on individual rights, property rights and real security to those who do not possess it with on law for Canada. 

Thank you, 

Ted Harlson. 

More Brampton Doctors (finally) speaking out

Let us all do all we can to stop this political pandemic! In Canada, our Premier has turned to false public policy, rather than peer reviewed research and studies as told by these doctors. Public policy (lockdown) has no evidence to support it. But the political atmosphere gets worse! Doug Ford, our Premier, has turned to fascism in his decisions to lockdown and create fear and obedience, and destroy almost the entire of small business.

Public policies, if not exposed and countered will not stop but grow worse and worse. It is long past time to end Canada’s and global irrational politics surrounding Cars-Cov-2.

What about Antifa?

It is important to understand the brutal essence of Antifa as they pose as freedom fighters, as “fighting fascism”, while media, politicians and left-wing extremist professors coddle or hide/ cower before their anarchist, murderous ways:

An Ontario Canada politician kicked from Progressive Conservatives

The following is a January 15, 2021 letter to Ontario’s Premier from Roman Baber, is now an (ex)sitting member of provincial parliament despite being truthful, honest, and accurate in his devastating portrayal of current lockdowns here.

Would that Brampton South’s own MPP representative, Prabmeet Singh Sakaria had a tiny speck of the same integrity and courage as this MPP. Would that our own Premier of Ontario, Canada be honest. The Ontario’s political pandemic would be over sooner than later:

Hold the torch high

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved, and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

 – By John McRae
