‘Jody Wilson-Raybould and the Betrayal of Canada’

Let’s not make a hero out of Jody Wilson-Raybould. She should have been removed as Minister of Justice when she attacked the jury system after the ‘Boushie’ verdict, and her past activism clearly indicates that she places aboriginals above other Canadians. In addition, her last act as Attorney General before resigning was to issue a directive instructing government lawyers to no longer oppose aboriginal court cases {and defend the interests of the rest of Canadians}, but to cooperate with aboriginal activists in undermining Canada’s sovereignty. Wilson-Raybould is a traitor…

“As I have written here before, Wilson-Raybould committed a number of acts and adopted a number of policies as minister of justice that advanced the interests of the native people, or at least some of the leaders among the native people, at the expense of the Canadian national interest.

“She incited suspicion about whether she was exercising her powers even-handedly. She had a duty to ensure that the decisions she took were objectively just and fair. I don’t believe she was blameless in these matters, and it would be surprising if that were not part of the motivation in shuffling her to another ministerial portfolio. I appear to be among the very few people in this country who has mentioned this aspect of the controversy, which indicates the extreme reluctance of anyone to touch native affairs policy. That is an aversion the political class and the media will have to overcome, as it is a vital and delicate field in desperate need of reform…”

“Wilson-Raybould was seriously underqualified to be minister of justice, a post historically occupied by some of Canada’s leading statesmen, including prime ministers or future prime ministers… Wilson-Raybould was a Crown prosecutor for three years and then spent 12 years as a native rights activist-administrator and politician. But she personified the fusion of two groups to which the Justin Trudeau ‘Liberal’ party and regime prostrated themselves like postulants before Pope Alexander (Borgia) VI…

“As a chief commissioner of the British Columbia Treaties Commission, and as regional chief of the Assembly of ‘First Nations’ {Aboriginal Communities} in British Columbia, Wilson-Raybould and her husband authored an 800-page book called the “British Columbia Association of First Nations Governance Toolkit — a Guide to Nation-Building”.

It was a toolkit for the self-emasculation of Canada as a sovereign jurisdiction, and a guide to the jurisdictional destruction of Canada as a nation and its voluntary submission, on grounds of the alleged moral turpitude of the European discoverers and settlers of this country, to the overlordship of the notoriously ragged, self-defined communities of partially pre-European-descended people in Canada.

Her declared objective was to “take back” what the natives had lost. I have written here before that where we are headed in public policy is the implicit recognition that the European occupation of Canada was morally indistinguishable, other than in the sophistication of its brutality, from the Nazi-Soviet occupation of Poland in 1939. Because the occupation was by waves and centuries of generations of peaceable civilians, the withdrawal of the invader, unlike the case of Poland in 1939–44, is not expected, merely the admission by the 98.5% of the population who qualify as comparative latecomers that the perfidy of their antecedents requires them to become the servile enrichers of the long-wronged natives.

“Wilson-Raybould came out of the ministerial gate like a fire horse and throughout her tenure, wore her nativist colours threadbare. She declared the so-called Indian treaties to be invalid, and redefined them as the right of the natives “to self-determination and self-government. She was instrumental in trumpeting the (Justin) Trudeau government’s “Rights and Recognition Framework”, unveiled in February 2018, shifting the rights under Section 35 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to not apply only to Aboriginal rights that existed in 1982, but to all laws and official practices.
{Which directly contradicts the intent of the Premiers who originally agreed to the Section 35 inclusion…}

“This would, in practice, have a severe impact on the disposition, regulation or exploitation of any significant natural resource anywhere in Canada. The economic development and growth of Canada that had anything to do with natural resources would be dictated by any of these 600 native organizations all purporting, with enthused government quiescence, to be “nations negotiating, on a basis of equality with the one nation of all the rest of Canada, i.e., one nation of 601 juridically-equal entities, although one particular entity comprises 98.5% of the population and has been recognized by the world as Canada’s government for 152 years.

She intervened in the ‘Restoule’ case, dealing with the Robinson treaties over the northern Great Lakes, and worked to ensure that the settlement would be declared retroactive to 1874 — a back-digging lottery jackpot for 21 ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} without buying a ticket.

“The justice minister found herself in increasingly difficult disagreement with the minister for Crown-‘Indigenous’ Relations (a ludicrously Victorian title), Carolyn Bennett, who made a commendable effort to prevent the non-native 98.5% of Canadians from being left shivering fiscally and culturally for the supposed wrongdoing of their forebears, and in the case of descendants of non-European immigrants, such as Asians or people from the Caribbean, coated in vicarious guilt…

“On her way out, on Jan. 11, Wilson-Raybould issued a “practice directive” to the justice ministry requiring Crown lawyers to cease adversarial arguments against Aboriginal litigants. She had, throughout her tenure, tied the government’s hands in responding to suits from Aboriginal organizations, and as she left, she tried to impose a policy of outright surrender on the government and the 98.5% majority of Canadians

“…It was scandalous and an outrageous abuse of her office that as attorney for the Crown, she ordered her officials to capitulate to ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} claimants. She should be criticized, not lionized, other than by her fellow Aboriginals for whom she has been the most effective advocate of their cause since Louis Riel, and an unprecedentedly effective driver of the gravy train

The opposition parties should have shaped up long before this, and taken the position that the Europeans and other immigrants who came to Canada moved into largely-vacant land, through which perhaps 200,000 natives travelled nomadically, fine exemplars of a Bronze Age civilization that had not yet developed the wheel, knitted fabrics, or, with slight exceptions, agriculture or durable buildings. The first European governor, Samuel de Champlain, was a brilliant, civilized and philo-Aboriginal emissary of the civilization of Montaigne, Descartes, Leonardo, Michelangelo and, though a citizen of a rival nation, Shakespeare.

“We should all stop simpering, shut down the ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} grievance racket, devise a serious reform policy and stop acting like pathetic apologists for the brave and good people who built this country, the Aboriginal people first among them.

“The natives have {some} entirely legitimate grievances and we have to address them, but not by throwing money at undemocratic leaders and accepting the blood libel that we are the descendants of barbarians. Nothing in the commonly-accepted history of Canada, one of the world’s most generous peoples, is further from the truth than that.”

–‘SNC-Lavalin is a sideshow to the real Wilson-Raybould issue’,
Conrad Black, National Post, March 15, 2019

Justice Minister and aboriginal race activist Jody Wilson-Raybould (Darryl Dyck–Canadian Press).

“…During her tenure in Justice, she made statements and took actions that furthered ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} political and legal goals, even going so far as to tilt the scales of justice in favour of ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} litigants. As one Crown lawyer who declines to be identified puts it,

“This was clearly Minister Wilson-Raybould’s priority right from the start. She issued directives to all government lawyers involved in ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} cases that severely limit the Crown’s ability to provide a full defence. They constrained time limitations, and shifted the onus from the plaintiffs having to prove their claims, to the government lawyers to show why any ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} claim should be limited.”
{A perversion of Western law…}

“There is also evidence, including in the former minister’s own words, that she was very upset with Trudeau’s decision to shelve a major piece of his government’s {one-way}reconciliation” agenda…

“The irony in this turnabout is as rich as it gets. While there’s little doubt Wilson-Raybould is highly intelligent and capable, Trudeau had vaulted her well beyond her qualifications to make her Attorney-General and Minister of Justice. And her record in those roles raises serious doubts about her experience, judgement and, particularly, her professed devotion to protecting the rule of law…

“…Along with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, the federal minister is theoretically one of the country’s two top lawyers. He or she must deal with the most important and complex national and international legal issues, sometimes during real-time crises. This is why Canadian justice ministers have almost invariably been seasoned senior lawyers.

“That does not describe Wilson-Raybould. She was called to the British Columbia bar in 2000, then worked as a junior prosecutor until just 2003, when she quit to take a political job with an ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} organization. In 2009, she became the B.C. Regional Chief of the Assembly of ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} (A‘FN’). Until her election to Parliament in 2015, she worked in various capacities in ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} politics.

“The reason a person with such arguably-thin legal credentials was appointed to such an important office is not hard to discern. Justin Trudeau ran on an uber-‘progressive’ platform in the 2015 election, promising ‘social justice’ for all, but especially women and ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} Canadians. He delivered with a gender-balanced cabinet (although women made up barely one-quarter of his caucus) that included Canada’s first Justice Minister and A-G of partly-‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} descent. (Wilson-Raybould’s mother is non-native. According to a 2018 Maclean’s magazine profile,
her parents split up when she was a young child and her mother raised her in an aboriginal cultural milieu.) Her advocacy for aboriginal grievances and entitlements echoed Trudeau’s oft-proclaimed commitment to {one-way}reconciliation”.

“There soon were signs, however, that the first-time MP and rookie Minister of Justice didn’t fully grasp her responsibilities – including the imperative of absolute impartiality. In early 2018, after a jury acquitted Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley of murdering a young ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} man named Colten Boushie while defending his property during an attempted robbery, Wilson-Raybould dove into the racially-charged post-verdict controversy by tweeting,

“As a country we can and must do better.”

“Publicly second-guessing the jury was bad enough, but the minister then advanced legislation that eliminated peremptory challenges in jury cases and made other changes to jury selection procedures. It was a transparent exercise in virtue signalling that many criminal lawyers believe will do more harm than good to the goal of fair trials.

“‘Indigenous’ {aboriginal} political objectives were also well-served by her handling of another legal matter that made far less news, but may cost the country billions of dollars. In the ‘Restoule’ case, ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} plaintiffs argued that treaty annuity payments in the Robinson treaties (covering the northern Great Lakes) should be made retroactive for up to 150 years. They won, but only after “Practise Directives” issued by Wilson-Raybould’s office had deliberately weakened the Crown’s defence on numerous vital points, making it virtually inevitable that the judge would find for the plaintiff. In effect, the minister threw the game.

‘Indigenous’ {aboriginal} groups are now lining up to make the same arguments about other treaties. As the anonymous Crown lawyer puts it,

If these Directives aren’t reversed, there will be huge financial consequences for taxpayers. Even if they are repudiated by a future government, the Crown may still be stuck with legal positions taken or defences waived.”

No experienced justice minister loyal to Canada would have compromised the country in this way.

“Wilson-Raybould’s ministerial record includes other dubious actions and decisions, not necessarily related to racially-tinged files. On her watch, the government passed a Criminal Code amendment allowing police officers to stop motorists and demand a breathalyzer without cause. This is a profound break with centuries-old common-law protections of due process, and it is certain to precipitate lengthy and expensive legal challenges. Her legacy of questionable law-making further includes new restrictions on evidence allowed in sexual assault trials, which criminal lawyers see as pandering to the #MeToo movement, again at the expense of due process…

“Still, it is Wilson-Raybould’s partisan ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} political agenda that raises the most serious concerns about her fitness for the job of Canada’s top lawmaker, and that should give Canadians pause before they anoint her as the country’s next political messiah. In the period between her short career in law and her entry into federal politics, she was immersed in strategy and advocacy for the relatively new movement to radically reinterpret Canada’s Indian treaties.

“As a commissioner – including a stint as chief commissioner – during the early 2000s with the B.C. Treaty Commission, she became a major player in the effort to escalate ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} claims for land and sovereignty. The original — and for many decades, unquestioned (on both sides) — understanding of Indian treaties in Canada was that they were legal agreements marking the permanent surrender of land and title to the Crown for specific consideration {As the Treaty clauses make very clear!}. The new claim is that they surrendered nothing and obligate taxpayers to pay rent to ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} groups in perpetuity, as well as giving ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} influence, if not veto power, over all activities on all lands throughout Canada.

“By the time Trudeau recruited her as a symbol of his commitment to identity politics, she was a senior executive with the A‘FN’ and presumably aligned with its position that ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal} communities must all be regarded as ‘nations’ equal in status to Canada, functioning as separate sovereign nations, subject to their own laws and citizenship rules, and “Canadian” only in the sense of being entitled to financial support from the federal government. Their first loyalty would be to their ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} racial identity as manifested by their own “nation.

“While serving as the regional chief for the A‘FN’ in B.C., Wilson-Raybould and her husband Tim (a non-native raised in England who has made a career as a consultant to ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} groups) authored an 800-page manifesto entitled the ‘BCA‘FN’ Governance Toolkit: A Guide to Nation Building’.

“Our people are moving away from being governed over by the federal government under the Indian Act and taking back control of their lives under their own institutions and laws in accordance with evolving ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} legal traditions”,
Wilson-Raybould wrote in the foreword. The ‘Toolkit’, she added, was a roadmap to achieving
“governance over lands that have been set aside as existing Indian reserves, treaty settlement lands and Aboriginal title lands, as well as {surrendered} ancestral lands that transcend all other categories of ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal} lands.”

“…In the summer of 2017, she announced 10 principles that would guide her government’s {one-way}reconciliation agenda”. The very first was that,

“All relations with ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples need to be based on the recognition and implementation of their right to self-determination, including the inherent right of self-government.”

But if Wilson-Raybould’s first loyalty is to a ‘nation’ or ‘nations’ other than Canada, how could she fairly represent Canada in its relations with those ‘nations’, whose leaders are openly seeking to implement an independent “nation-to-nation” arrangement with the federal government?

“…The estrangement between Wilson-Raybould and the Trudeau government was triggered months earlier. The cause was Trudeau’s showpiece ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} policy initiative, the so-called “rights and recognition framework”, unveiled by the prime minister himself in a speech to Parliament on February 14, 2018.

“This was a plan to expand and apply ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} rights asserted in Section 35 of the Constitution to all laws and functions of the government. Section 35 was a contentious last-minute addition to the ‘Constitution Act, 1982’, specifically limited (mainly at the insistence of then-Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed) to “existing” aboriginal rights. Canada’s courts, and governments, have shown little deference to this caveat ever since, and ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} rights have expanded exponentially {!}.

Trudeau’s promised “framework, unveiled in February 2018, would go much farther still, making all Canadian law compliant with ‘Section 35’. This would satisfy a long-standing demand by ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} rights activists. It would also ratify the ‘United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Aboriginal Peoples’, giving every Canadian ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal community} the right to be consulted over any proposed new Canadian legislation. Moreover, if enacted, this law could expand the only-recently-won aboriginal veto over resource development on or near Indian reserves or claimed “traditional territories”, to virtually any significant development of any kind, anywhere.

“This was still not good enough for the A‘FN’ and its allies, who were mostly critical of the document. A critique, published by Ryerson University’s {aboriginal} Yellowhead Institute last June, complained that it offered a

“narrow model of self-government outside of the Indian Act, premised on devolution of program and service delivery, fiscal mechanisms that do not address land rights but focus on accountability, a piecemeal approach to Aboriginal title, and an ongoing neglect of treaty obligations or expansive ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal} jurisdiction generally.”

“Be that as it may, somewhere along the way it seems Trudeau began to get cold feet. He may have been advised how profoundly destabilizing the legislation would be. Economic development and growth would be largely dictated by the country’s 600-odd ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities}. Not all of Trudeau’s cabinet apparently wanted to charge headlong down this road.

“The dispute took place largely in the confidential settings of Cabinet deliberations and senior bureaucratic discussions. But it burst into the open during a speech by Wilson-Raybould at the University of Saskatchewan last September 18.

“In a thinly-veiled attack on a framework discussion paper issued by the office of ‘Indigenous’ {Aboriginal} Services Minister Carolyn Bennett, Wilson-Raybould declared that

“…words are also easy, cheap…too often we see the tendency – especially in politics – to use important words that have real meaning and importance, carelessly…We see ‘recognition’ applied to words that actually mean ‘denial’. We see ‘self government’ used to apply to ideas or processes that actually maintain control over others.”

“ Wilson-Raybould was effectively channelling complaints levelled by the A‘FN’, some of whose chiefs had publicly demanded that Wilson-Raybould take over the file.

“…At his first Justice Committee appearance, Michael Wernick, the Clerk of the Privy Council (effectively, Canada’s top-most bureaucrat) testified that a meeting between Trudeau and Wilson-Raybould only one day before the University of Saskatchewan speech, which she had claimed was focused on SNC-Lavalin, was, in fact, called mainly to discuss her “very serious policy differences” with Bennett and other ministers over the ‘Section 35’ plan. At this meeting, Trudeau announced the bill would have to wait until after the next election. Instead, the federal government would proceed with ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} languages legislation.

“It would be surprising if Wilson-Raybould did not feel let down, or even betrayed. If she capitulated, she risked the ire of the A‘FN’ chiefs and other captains of the so-called “Indian Industry”, perhaps including her father, long-time ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} political firebrand Bill Wilson. After all, his daughter as a child had been named “Puglaas” – “Born to a Noble People”. Wilson told a CBC interviewer she is “‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} royalty”, predestined for political greatness. The Globe and Mail reported last month that Wilson-Raybould even challenged the prime minister’s prerogative to appoint judges. No wonder the first instinct of ‘Liberal’ spin doctors when Wilson-Raybould went rogue was to launch a whisper campaign about how difficult she was to work with.

“The stage was set for a showdown between Wilson-Raybould and a prime minister who perhaps realized – belatedly – that his prized minister’s demands would exact far too high a price on the country. Her insistence on a “nation-to-nation” deal with Ottawa, including imposing obligations to fund 600-plus ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} ‘nations’ in perpetuity and give them de facto command of the country’s economy, became too much even for him.

“But Wilson-Raybould didn’t take no for an answer. Her last act as Justice Minister after she was informed of her demotion, as reported in the Ottawa Citizen on March 5,
was to affirm her ‘Practise Directives’ advising all Crown lawyers to cease adversarial arguments in all litigation involving ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} claims.

“At the end of his opening statement in his rocky second appearance before the Justice Committee last Wednesday, Wernick warned of this act’s dire consequences:

“Finally, the Committee may wish to hold hearings on the Attorney General of Canada’s “Directive on Civil Litigation Involving ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples”, issued by the former Attorney General on January 11, 2019. The Directive to all Government of Canada litigators could mark a profound change in Canada’s legal landscape. However, it could be repealed or gutted at the stroke of a pen and turn to ashes. All political parties now need to be clear with Canadians on the future of this Directive.”
{The so-called ‘Conservatives’ have agreed to support Wilson-Raybould’s subversion…}

“It’s hard not to see Wilson-Raybould’s actions as an attempt to advance the ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} rights framework by other means. It also looks an awful lot like an attempted weakening of the rule of law as it applies to ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} litigation – precisely what the government allegedly tried to do for SNC-Lavalin.

“Viewed in this light, the extraordinary events of the last few weeks appear to have as much or more to do with Wilson-Raybould pressuring Trudeau’s office, as with his office pressuring her. Far from being the heroic defender of the rule of law in the SNC-Lavalin prosecution, she took steps to weaken the Crown’s ability to defend Canada’s interests in ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} rights cases, and fought for implementation of the A‘FN’s “nation-to-nation” plan. Her evident determination to put the A‘FN’s agenda ahead of the government’s would certainly explain why Trudeau, senior bureaucrats and a good part of the Cabinet were so upset with her.

“…Whatever the true political calculus of the PMO, Trudeau cabinet and senior bureaucrats may have been, Prime Minister Trudeau and all who still support him must rue the day he invited Jody Wilson-Raybould to join his team.”

–‘Who Pressured Whom?’,
Brian Giesbrecht, C2C Journal, March 11, 2019

Longtime aboriginal political activist Bill Wilson, father of Jody Wilson-Raybould (C2C Journal).

“…The beehive-poking moment they still talk about in B.C. is known as her “With all due respect, Mr. Prime Minister” speech:
While addressing a gathering of government officials and aboriginal leaders in 2012, she stared down Stephen Harper, seated in the front row, and rebuked Ottawa for its “neo-colonialism”.

“But, for Ms. Wilson-Raybould, the turning point came one year later, during the ‘Idle No More’ protests, as she was sitting in the prime minister’s office in the Langevin Block. With a crowd chanting outside, and acting in her capacity as B.C. regional chief, she presented a detailed strategy for ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal} self-government. Mr. Harper {thankfully} all but ignored it…

“…a 32-year-old video resurfaced in which the father of the future justice minister spars with the father of the future prime minister. They are sitting across from each other at the 1983 constitutional conference on native issues in Ottawa. Bill Wilson, then vice-president of the Native Council of Canada, tells Pierre Trudeau,

“I have two children on Vancouver Island, both of whom, for some misguided reason, say they want to be a lawyer. Both of whom want to be the prime minister.” …

“…Ms. Wilson-Raybould comes from a prominent family of the We Wai Kai ‘Nation’ {Cape Mudge Band — a ‘nation’ of 1,147 people}, and she has a home on the Campbell River on the Cape Mudge reserve, not far from Comox.

“Her paternal grandmother, Ethel Pearson, helped to start the B.C. Native Courtworkers Association, and was active in fighting for ‘Bill C-31’, which restored status to ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} women who had lost it when they married non-‘indigenous’ men.

“Her father was the second ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} person to graduate from UBC’s law school. (His cousin Alfred Scow was the first, and became the first ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} judge appointed to the B.C. Provincial Court.)

“Mr. Wilson became a prominent ‘indigenous’ leader and {anti-Canadian} activist, and served as spokesman for the Native Council of Canada in 1983, to push for {the disastrous} Section 35 of the Constitution Act, an amendment that affirms {so-called} ‘indigenous rights’, and would later guide his daughter’s work as regional chief.

“Her…sister was recently named executive director of ‘aboriginal initiatives and partnerships’ at the British Columbia Institute of Technology…

“…Many of Ms. Wilson-Raybould’s relatives attended residential school. Her father, one of the youngest in his family, ‘escaped’ only because, when officials came to get him, his own father, by then a well-off businessman in Comox, refused to let him go. Her grandmother, Ms. Pearson, although a respected elder, was among the ‘indigenous’ women stripped of native status – her second marriage was to a ‘white’ man. In contrast, Ms. Wilson-Raybould’s non-native mother gained status by marrying Bill Wilson, shortly after they graduated from high school together in Comox…
{All of which highlights the ridiculousness of racial ‘status’…}

“…In the kitchen on the reserve, or at their grandmother’s home in Comox, treaty ‘rights’ and the Indian Act were regular topics of discussion.

“As much as we wanted to go out and play with our friends,”
she recalls,
“we were told to sit and listen to the discussions taking place, whether around the land question or self-government.” …

“…In 2003, Miles Richardson, then head of the treaty commission trying to settle land claims in B.C., offered her a job as a senior adviser {!}. Ms. Wilson-Raybould became a lead voice at the table, eventually rising to the position of an elected member of the commission, and then acting chief commissioner…

“She’d been at the Treaty Commission for seven years when a chief from Cape Mudge nominated Ms. Wilson-Raybould for the position of regional chief – a role in the big leagues of aboriginal politics that would vault her onto the executive committee of the Assembly of ‘First Nations’ (A‘FN’)…

“While negotiating treaties, she recognized that ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} would have a better bargaining position if they were self-governing, and became an expert in the subject…

“Her impatience with the slow progress being made – and what she perceived as indifference from Ottawa – came to a head during the ‘Idle No More’ meeting in 2013. With the protesters gathered outside on Parliament Hill, she and a number of other chiefs met with the prime minister, over the objections of many people in the ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal} community. When it came time for Chief Wilson-Raybould to speak, she laid out her self-governance initiative, proposing a {one-way}reconciliation framework” that would guide programs in each government department.

“In his concluding remarks, she says, Mr. Harper conceded that, although Ottawa knew it had to change the Indian Act, nobody had any good ideas on how to go about it…

“Sitting at her desk a few days into her new job, Ms. Wilson-Raybould picked up the phone and called Chief Justice McLachlin.

“I am not sure this was appropriate {!}”,
she says now, but she wanted to offer her
“thanks to the court”.
{For their creation of ‘aboriginal rights’ and the resultant lawyer-driven, billion-dollar Aboriginal Industry, and their nonsensical – and anti-Western law – acceptance of so-called ‘oral history’…}

“She recalls telling the Chief Justice,

“I really respect a lot of the decisions you have made with respect to {so-called} ‘indigenous’ rights…”

“Ms. Wilson-Raybould is mindful of her responsibility to mark the way for others, and says that she approaches her cabinet position, and her role as an MP,

“through the lens of my own experience, my own feeling of injustice.” …”
{“Injustice”? What nonsense. She is a prime beneficiary of aboriginal privilege…}

Erin Anderssen, Toronto Globe and Mail, April 3rd, 2016

A link also used to be here:
“Former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould warned Gerald Butts, former principal secretary to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, that there would be ‘indigenous’ {the correct term is ‘aboriginal’} anger across the country if she was removed from the post.

“A series of text messages between Wilson-Raybould and Butts in the days after she was told of the plan to shuffle her out of the position show Wilson-Raybould repeatedly stressing that removing her from the post would lead to questions about why she was being “pushed out” of the position.

“The messages were part of a 39-page submission made by Butts to the House of Commons justice committee on Sunday and obtained by Global News prior to being released publicly.

“Timing of ‘pushing’ me out (which will be the perception — whether true or not) is terrible,”
she texted Butts on Jan. 8, 2019.
“It will be confounding and perplexing to people. This is not about me — believe me when I say this — but this is about an approach to ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples.”

“The next part of the text is redacted but the same message continues with Wilson-Raybould writing,

“This situation is only going to deepen and I am very worried about it. I am getting texts/emails from indig [sic] leaders and BC etc. Just felt I had to text.”

“In response…Butts said,

“Nobody is ‘pushing you out. In fact, the PM has taken the extraordinary (in my experience unique) step of offering an alternative Cabinet post to you because you said you were unable to take on ‘Indigenous’ {Aboriginal} Services”

“Wilson-Raybould, a vocal opponent to the Indian Act, has said she could not accept a role that would make her responsible for administering the Act…”

‘First Nations’ Justice Council .( Justin Brake-APTN)

And here, after her removal from power, Wilson-Raybould comes clean with her anti-Canadian, race-based agenda:

“Jody Wilson-Raybould says the federal government has cold feet when it comes to recognizing and implementing ‘indigenous’ {actually, ‘aboriginal’} ‘rights’.

“The former ‘Liberal’ justice minister and attorney general told leaders from the ‘First Nations’ {Aboriginal Communities} ‘Justice’ Council in Richmond, B.C. on Wednesday that despite Prime Minister Trudeau’s promises of {one-way} ‘reconciliation’,

“the federal government has fallen back once again into a pattern of trying to manage the problem of ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples and making incremental limited shifts, instead of transforming the status quo.
{End Race Based Law!}

“In my view, it is never appropriate or proper to have as a goal managing the challenges and the byproducts of ‘colonialism’ {‘modernization’}”,

she told the room of almost 200 gathered for the first annual ‘First Nations’ {Aboriginal Communities} Provincial ‘Justice’ Forum.

“Wilson-Raybould, who was kicked out of the ‘Liberal’ caucus alongside former ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} services minister Jane Philpott earlier this month after the two spoke out against senior government officials’ behaviour related to the SNC-Lavalin affair, said a {subversive, anti-Canadian} directive she issued on civil litigation for ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples and her work toward an ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} ‘rights’ framework were met with significant resistance within Cabinet.
{They had no choice but to oppose measures that undermine Canadian sovereignty.}

“She said while the government is making small and important strides on things like ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} policy reform, fundamental change is required, including

“the basic Crown recognition of Indigenous title, rights and governments.”
{No, it needs to End Race Based Law, not expand it!}

“Following Trudeau’s Feb. 14, 2018 speech in the House of Commons, when he promised sweeping legislative reform on the recognition and implementation of ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} rights, Wilson-Raybould said she thought the changes would “happen imminently”.

“As you all know, this has not occurred and I fear we may have temporarily fallen back into a less audacious, less meaningful conversation and mode of work that, while perhaps more comfortable, will not achieve the transformative space that is required”,
she said.

“The former Assembly of ‘First Nations’ {Aboriginal Communities} regional chief for B.C. praised ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal communities} work on justice reform in their own communities and said the need for a directive to reform how the government handles civil litigation involving ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples

“speaks volumes to the much more foundational challenges we still face.

“The patterns of perpetual, expensive and seemingly endless litigation that we’ve fallen into is a symptom of a much deeper dilemma rooted in the history of our country and about how the law and the justice system has operated”,
she said.
{Yes, and it has been exacerbated by the invented Race ‘rights’ granted to aboriginals by our foolish Supreme Court…}

“On the issue of ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} ‘rights’, Wilson-Raybould said there was a fear that recognizing and implementing those rights could have negative economic consequences.
{! And they would also further create a segregationist Canada where 5% of Canadians would hold vastly disproportionate power…}

“Some, who importantly did not and perhaps still do not realize that uncertainty, conflict and unpredictability arise as the denial of {segregationist Race} rights, not because of their recognition”,
she said.

“Philpott also addressed delegates Wednesday, praising their work on justice reform for ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal} peoples and emphasizing the need to continue pushing

“for the full implementation of the {racist and undemocractic} United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, as well as the [{Partial} Truth and {One-way} ‘Reconciliation’ Commission] calls to action.”

“Following the speeches, the ‘justice’ forum held an Honouring Ceremony for Philpott and Wilson-Raybould.

“Forum Chair Doug White called the women

“two remarkable individuals…[who] have demonstrated with great clarity that it doesn’t matter what caucus you’re in, what party you’re in, whether you’re a minister or not, that what we need and what we crave in these kinds of defining moments is clarity of leadership, purity of resolve and commitment to basic principles, the rule of law — that we can find a principled way through to craft a different future.”

“Addressing the former cabinet ministers and the delegation in a pre-taped video message, Grand Chief {and prominent anti-Canadian} Stewart Philip of the Union of B.C. Indian Chief noted what Wilson-Raybould and Philpott have experienced in Ottawa represents

“a very dark underside to the federal government which has characterized government through the ‘colonization’ {modernization} and neocolonial period.

“We’re so proud that both Jody and Jane stood up to that, spoke out publicly, were certainly on the right {wrong} side of history”,
he said.
“On behalf of the Okanagan ‘Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 2,040 people}, we want to express our deep gratitude on behalf of our children, our grandchildren, and future generations. You’ve done a tremendous service to the ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} peoples of this country, you’ve set a very high standard, and you’ve inspired our people from coast to coast to coast.”
