Little Justin, the current Prime Minister of so-called Canada, has followed in the footsteps of his colonial father, P.E.T., by continuing to break promises and approve projects that negatively affect Indigenous peoples.
In 1969 P.E.T. supported the White Paper created by J. Chrétien, Minister of Indian Affairs, as a policy that attempted to abolish legal rights and treaties relating to Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island or in so-called Canada. It continues to be the norm that non-Indigneous people hold positions of power and control over Indigenous narratives, issues, and the overall jurisdiction of their rights. The White Paper was rejected.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as Justin continues his father’s legacy and will leave a colonized legacy for his family and all Canadians.
Little Justin’s Bill C-15 is disguised as a Bill that would implement The UN’s Declaration of Indigenous Peoples, but it is essentially the White Paper 2.0.
