Forcing Canada to Confront Past, First Nations Erect Symbolic Teepee in Nation's Capitol

Julia Conley, staff writer

Widespread applause greeted a large teepee in front of Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario on Thursday morning. First Nations protesters erected the teepee as a reminder of the mistreatment of their ancestors amid celebrations in Canada for the country's 150th anniversary.

I suspect that Trudeau had a hand in calling off the Parliamentary Protective Service.

See his remarks in Charlottetown this morning: "Canada has failed Indigenous peoples..We need to do a much better job of hearing their stories." Trudeau said that "impatience from many people after decades, centuries of a broken relationship," was understandable. He's not perfect but at least he's pointed in the right direction.

/nota to CD editors: typo - it's 'capital city', not 'capitol city'.

Canada, like the United States (and all of the New World) have brutalized the Native American populations. In Canada, some of the most heinous exploitation of Native children in orphanages have been exposed by numerous authors.
