Feathers verus Guns: The Throne Speech and Canada's War with the Mi’kmaw Nation at Elsipogtog
*As I write this blog, Canada is at war with the Mi’kmaw Nation - again – this time in Elsipogtog (Big Cove First Nation) in New Brunswick. The Mi’kmaw have spoken out against hydro-fracking on their territory for many months now. They have tried to get the attention of governments to no avail. Now the Mi'kmaw are in a battle of drums and feathers versus tanks and assault rifles - not the rosy picture painted by Canada to the international community.
It’s Harper’s move now – more tanks and RCMP violence or a negotiating table?
