Oil and Peace Pipes


A Quaker friend of mine heard from someone who sits on the residential schools Truth & Reconciliation Commission, that when this Commission is over all the documentation about the (still concealed) extent of this travesty will be destroyed by this Government. Gone will be the complete history of murders of child residents by staff and deliberate acts of placing unaffected victims to sleep next to children infected with TB, which qualifies legally to be called “genocide.” How could Harper have faced these marchers, given the intended tragic and farcical cover-up of this evidence and his willing role in it?

The resource extraction-driven Government and the churches that controlled Canada’s residential schools remain the most powerful enemies of the truth about our country’s shameful treatment of First Nations people. Ignorance and smug complacency among Canadian voters must be preserved.

Oil cannot be safely smoked in peace pipes.
