‘Ontario Refuses To Enforce The Law’

     “I know I could’ve done  all the stuff that they asked me [to do] by paperwork, but then I’m thinking, ‘I come from here’”, Necan said. “Why would I start paying a permit to build on ‘my own land’?”  

“It’s not a precedent-setting case, because it never made it to trial, but her lawyer said Necan’s unwillingness to be pushed out of her own {ancestors’} ‘homelands’ is a good example for others…  

     “I hope that inspires others to take a stand against ‘colonialism’ and oppression.”

ERBLOntarioRefusesToEnforceTheLaw800x800“Darlene Necan, a ‘homeless’ – and more importantly, in this case, ‘aboriginal’ –woman from northern Ontario, plans to move into the cabin she built herself after the provincial government withdrew its charges against her in court today. 

“The ‘First Nations’ woman was facing charges from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry for breaching the ‘Public Lands Act’ and was facing more than $10,000 in fines after constructing a one-room cabin on Crown land… {on what she says was once her family’s trapline}.  

“But when Necan opted to go to trial rather than pay the fines, the government dropped the charges, 18 months after they were first laid. 

     “The Crown is of the view that it is not in the public interest {?} to proceed with these charges”, Crown counsel Scott Dunsmuir wrote in a letter to Necan’s lawyer on March 17.

     “In this case, the public expense of a lengthy trial does not appear to be justified when weighed against the gravity of the offence.”

{Such a simple case could only produce “a lengthy trial” if the nebulous ‘aboriginal and treaty rights’ are brought into it…} 

“Necan is a member of the Ojibway ‘Nation’ of Saugeen, but she has been unable to acquire housing in that community, about 400 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, since the reserve was created in the late 1990’s…  

{The Saugeen ‘First Nation’ budgeted $1,550,965 for its ‘Capital Housing program’ in 2015, but only spent $318,464 in 2014 and $524,209 in 2013. Their audited financial statement claims an ‘Accumulated Surplus’ of $32,844,400: http://www.saugeenfirstnation.ca/downloads/Consolidated%20Financial%20Statements%20-%20SFN%20YE15%20signed.pdf }

“The government has not issued Necan a permit for her house, a typical requirement on Crown land, but her lawyer Michael Leitold said that after the withdrawal of the charges, she’s free to move in. 

“It’s not a precedent-setting case, because it never made it to trial, but Leitold said Necan’s unwillingness to be pushed out of her own ‘homelands’ is a good example for others… {? This is a lawyer who is publicly encouraging law-breaking…} 

     “I hope that inspires others to take a stand against ‘colonialism’ and oppression.”

 –‘Ontario withdraws charges against homeless woman who built her own cabin’,

CBC News (Thunder Bay), Mar 19, 2015  

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/thunder-bay/ontario-withdraws-charges-against-homeless-woman-who-built-her-own-cabin-1.3001523 darlene-necan-2Here’s the background, from November, 2013:  

“The province has ordered an aboriginal woman from northwestern Ontario to stop building a home on what she considers her family’s ‘traditional land’.
Darlene Necan is building her own home on her family’s traditional trapline, OUTSIDE THE BOUNDARIES of Saugeen ‘First Nation’, near Pickle Lake.
 

“In an earlier ‘CBC News’ story, she said HER NEEDS — and those of many other off-reserve members — AREN’T BEING MET BY THE ‘FIRST NATION’ LEADERSHIP.

     “Being homeless all the time, that kind of got to me”, Necan said. “It seemed like society pushed me back on our land, and that’s why I started building on our trapline.” 

“But last month, the Ministry of Natural Resources issued a stop-work order, and told her she could face a $10,000 fine if she doesn’t get a permit.  

     “I know I could’ve done all the stuff that they asked me [to do] by paperwork, but then I’m thinking, ‘I come from here’,” Necan said. “Why would I start paying a permit to build on ‘my own land’?”  

“Necan said she still plans to finish the house and move in, DESPITE THE ORDER FROM THE MNR.  

“A ministry spokesperson confirmed the order has been issued but declined to comment further, saying the issue is in the hands of the MNR enforcement branch…  

“Necan herself is currently homeless and living in a shack.  

     “[I’m] trying to stand on my own two feet, to build my own house, a place to call home”, she said. “So I gotta do something and I gotta help myself and … build my own home in ‘my own traditional land’.” 

{Except that her ‘own traditional land’ passed from her ancestors’ hands in 1850. It’s time to get over it. Her ‘Treaty right’ is that she can continue to trap on the traditional trap line. That’s it. She can’t decide to build a house on someone else’s property, even if her ancestors owned it 165 years ago… Why is she not building a home on the reserve?} 

“Necan said she is building the house with the support of the ‘Indigenous Commission of the International League of People’s Struggles’, many grassroots activists and several union locals.  

{The ‘Indigenous Commission of the International League of People’s Struggles’ is a Maoist {Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist)} front organization. Communists use ‘front organizations’ as a means of inserting themselves into the leadership of somebody else’s “struggle” (“‘The National Question’: a specific strategy adopted by Marxist-Leninists to help destabilise a ‘colonised’ country by use of the grievances, real or otherwise, of ‘indigenous’ populations”). They then try and manipulate it for their own ends… http://ilps-canada.ca/ }
