Attawapiskat and Our New Canadian Flag
It's going to be -21 degrees and feel like -30 in Attawapiskat today. Where some families are living in tents and plywood shacks like this one.
So what is our hideous Con government doing, more than a month after that poor little community declared a state of emergency?
Preparing to send them 15 modular homes.
The federal government has bought 15 modular homes for the remote first-nations community of Attawapiskat, but Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan is holding out the possibility that the impoverished reserve may ultimately pay the bill.
Maybe as late as JANUARY.
Mr. Duncan told reporters on Friday that the homes would be delivered as soon as the surrounding lakes freeze and the annual ice roads become open.
And only if that impoverished community pays for them, like they're paying for this Con Injun Agent.
The federal government is forcing the troubled Attawapiskat First Nation to pay a private-sector consultant about $1,300 a day to run its finances — even though the government’s own assessments say the third-party management system is not cost-effective.
Can you believe this outrageous bullshit? Is this Canada, Apartheid South Africa, or North Korea?
And where are our glorious armed forces? When they've finished "liberating" Libya, and serving as a free taxi service for Peter MacKay, do you think they might try to save our own people?
Gawd. You know the other day the Guardian ran a story on multiculturalism in Canada.
And when the story was first published somebody in their editorial department made a really big boo boo...
As some of you spotted, the original image used to illustrate this article wasn't a Canadian flag at all, but a very similar one with a Cannabis leaf in place of a Maple leaf. The Cannabis leaf flag was labelled wrongly in our picture database as "Canadian flag" and the rest is human error.
As an old sage once said, "oops".
Which would be hilarious eh? If our grotesque Cons weren't ramming through a fascist crime bill that will send even more Canadians to jail for the "crime" of using marijuana.
And if we we weren't living in Stephen Harper's Canada, where CRUEL has replaced COOL.
Shame means NOTHING.
And our flag now looks like this...
