Brave Republicans Confront DOJ About Whitmer 'Entrapment'
"A handful of Intrepid Republicans, and it's, it shouldn't be a handful. It should be the Republicans in a unified political phalanx. But no, it takes the brave ones to go out front. And here I'm talking about, I'm gonna name them. It's led by Marjorie Taylor Greene, but you've got Scott Perry, Dan bishop, Andrew Clyde, Andy Biggs, bob good, Mary Miller, Paul gosar, Andy Harris, Louie gohmert, Thomas massie Matt Gaetz, well, what are they doing? In the aftermath of the exoneration of two key defendants in the Whitmer kidnapping trial, the pressing attorney general Garland for some specific answers. Now, trying to get answers out of Garland is not an easy business. This is like going to the consigliere of Don Corleone and saying, hey, listen, we're we want to find out more about the mafia. You're actually talking to the mafia. But nevertheless, this needs to be done. And so this is a stinging letter and a demand. Of Merrick Garland copied a Christopher wray, and the questions themselves are telling, let me just read a couple of them. Who within the DoJ and the FBI knew about or was involved in the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer, tell us. Remember, this is a letter being sent by the legislators to the executive branch, which is accountable to the legislative branch. Number two, to what extent would the DoJ and the FBI motivated by the 2020 presidential election to paint political opponents as domestic terrorists specifically Vis-à-vis the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer and the events of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. In other words, this is not just at the FBI staging orchestrating infiltrating and moving along a plot. This is the FBI timing those events to coincide with an election. So the issue here being raised is the election interference, very important issue because these revelations came to light in early October of 2020.

"With me today are two amazing guys. Josh, from Baden, or Baden, canine. I got that right. And then we'll just call the friend of my left Yoda from the navy seal museum and also the canine project. I wanted this conversation for a while, Josh, I'll start with you. My new dog came from your farm, came from what you guys do, and I've just been so blown away and impressed and our audience knows all about mister Briggs now. And I just want to first just kind of for you to introduce yourself and tell our audience, what are you guys doing bad in? Hey, thanks, Charlie for having us. So my name is Joshua Perry. I come from Ben and canine. It's a Canadian facility that was founded by my family back in the 70s. Early 70s and we breed raising train Dutch uppers, German shepherds and Belgian malinois. Like Briggs, the Dutch shepherds are a unique dog and a good-looking dog. So that's who I am. How long have you been doing it? The company now was founded in 72. I've been doing it for 24 years. That's awesome. And so Yoda, you run the canine project, or you help run it, and also this museum tells about both. Okay, great. So the museum, the museum itself, the mission is to capture preserve and present the history of naval special warfare to the public. And then within that they have a charitable 501c3 organization known as trident host charities. And within trident host charities, they got four pillars on it, but one pillar is the K9 project. And that's an entity that really focuses on marrying up the right dogs with the right veterans who require the veteran who are required the dog and that also translates right into the veterans family. So really it's affecting both just both the veteran and the family itself. And that's it in a

Tiffany Justice: 'We Don't Co-Parent With the Government'
"A Tiffany, you describe what you experienced in your school board with your four years there. What is the end state? Have you managed to get to a point where, yes, they've taken control. Yes, they've intimidated parents. They've even helped to isolate individual students who weren't politically correct. Are they just trying to soak confusion or do they just want everybody to be forced to obey their ideology, whatever it is, transgenderism, social justice, what have you? I think that it's definitely orchestrated to force us to have to believe and buy into an ideology. Absolutely. And I think parents are very much seeing that. And what they're saying is that we don't co parent with the government. These are areas in our children's lives. We have fundamental rights to our children to direct their upbringing. And the government needs to get out of our houses, right? Yeah, well, we know this is a socialist concept that children don't belong to families. Right. The state owns the children. And we've heard people say this in American media recently. Melissa Harris Perry was saying it a couple of years ago. A 100%. This isn't new. But I think only recently have parents really, they're awake now, but now they're really seeing it. And I want to tell you about some of the instances happening in Florida. And why HB 1557 was so important. All right, so explain. So talk about HB. 1557. 1557 and how it became a reality. Yeah, no, absolutely. So there were a number of different important bills in Florida this year and we're working really hard to get all of that information out to our chapters. HB 1557 is the bill that was called the don't say gay bill by the media. What a ridiculous moniker to give to good solid parental rights legislation. But I think that's why they had to do it. Well, yeah, because otherwise they have to admit what it is, which is the anti grooming Bill.
Rick Perry Says Biden Wants to Destroy the Oil and Gas Industry
"Here's what Rick Perry says the former secretary of energy under Donald Trump. This message from the Biden administration to the rest of the world, but particularly to the woke left that I'm going to do what you demand me to do. And that is to bring the oil and gas industry to its knees. That message is being heard loud and clear from the boardrooms across America to the Federal Reserve, all across this country. Every agency of government, they have their ESG, their environmental concepts, of which they're pushing into all of their regulations. And it's not lost on our oil and gas producers. It's not lost on our allies around the world. This administration truly is willing to put the world in jeopardy to send a message to his buddies in the political side of things that he's going to hold firm for them on this climate change issue.

"You know i found myself in a position where you know addition was taken over my life. You know alcohol drug abuse Risky lifestyle all of that stuff and dream of being a hockey player. Left me when. I met a grave. James and i think I didn't know why. I didn't know what was happening to me. Couldn't explain it to anybody because it happened so long ago. You know twenty twenty. While i was fourteen at the time so you know thirty years ago and over thirty years ago you know. We didn't talk about this stuff. So i remember the fear of telling anybody who's gonna believe me because i've been this trouble making kid that you know the drunk and that's the way i visit and so anyway. I remember when. I saw graham when i got traded from the detroit. Red wings to the calgary flames. And i saw graham outside. The locker amuse coaching calvary Diamond and i saw him the young kids. I just need myself. My life was out of control at the time. And i just knew that if i didn't do something a i needed to stop him from hurting other kids and i needed to save my life because i was very suicidal and And my wife was pregnant with her daughter. Ryan at time i would never be the father and the parent and husband that i wanted to be honest. I dealt with this stuff. So that's how i told my story. I didn't think anybody was gonna believe me. And i remember getting to the point where It was in one thousand nine hundred seven. I was canada's newsmaker of the year. And i remember looking at the newspaper. There was terry fox. Rick set recanting of prime ministers and so forth and then i was newsmaker of the year ninety seven. I thought to myself Done anything here. So i'm going to put on a pair of rollerblades rollerblade across the country. And i gotta say perry late probably the thing that kept me going across. This country was all the disclosures in the support. And the people the chemo. Keep going keep going. Thank you show them. And i can tell you that i visited there was communities. And i remember going into col- non-member golan like you. Don't we visited in a communities and first nations communities average communities across this country I remember being drummed in having ceremonies within ranks. I remember people telling us. This rink has not been filled in years and years and years and years at a time when i think we came together not just me personally but it was the first time that i didn't feel alone and i think it was an and that's what i was given when i was welcomed inductees communities but also I think what i gave them was voice Around issues that how they'd been hurt And men not just the women but also the man and i think You know being able to connect the dots around residential school. You know. I think the incidences were different. But one thing that's really stuck with me is. The impact is very consistent. And that's one thing that i will never ever forget that. And that's the most relatable place for conversation is that you know the time the place the person is different. But but how we were hurt can how were impacted. What what we were left with Deliver lives with because of what happened to us was very consistent. I think that was the most commonplace for conversation You know that's i went across the country and we had conversations like that perry night. You know what. I remember. When i i told my story it was not everything. Just didn't go away. I had a. I had a lot of wreckage that had to do with the damage of what happened to me. And i remember. I went to a treatment center. And and i managed to get sober but i was really struggling with spirituality. All the story to you know. And i ran into a friend of mine who worked at the medicine mountain Sandy lake and we went on a four athos out in the area And was a place. Where actually. Because i think when you're abused you lose your ability to trust because you're hurt by somebody that you trust right and that's a big deal. That's a lot bigger than people think. Because how are we supposed to trust in the spirits in crater for somebody that you know you're not trust belief that's about right and so for me. That was a huge part of my recovery. It's still is today because it gave me that. Trust brought in brought the spirits in for me to actually believe that. I'm not alone right now is really important to me. That's a very powerful powerful dialogue sheldon be about trust in healing and keeping going hearing the disclosures. Rollerblading cross canada. I time not feeling alone. And giving first nations people avoid because what you describe experiences that experience a lot of people who the residential schools it was physical abuse mental abuse sexual abuse starvation And now we lift you up for leading like that again. You're the you're the example of optime mc now you're in hockey and that's sports and there's also the abuse of power like you talked about the the trust between the coach and the players and and this goes to any other sports sporting event or activity. You know how. How can we look at breaking the pattern of abuse in. Sports are in any place where there's an imbalance of power involving children and sports itself is yes. There's abuse there but as good sports really part of the answer too. Yeah well. I think you're you're sitting right on. This is not just hockey issue societal issue. I think you're right. It's bound to power. And i think our best defense in what we how we tried to go about. This is to build coffins around of these issues and clarity and an ability to have the conversations to speak in when our guts are telling us Need to be able to follow that. Follow that path and to be able to ask questions in a not. You know but i think right now. We're not sure how asked these questions because we're not really sure if it is or if it isn't in my talk about confidantes irony it's about. We need to be very clear on what's right and what's wrong because a lot of times. Look at these issues all. I can't step in there. I can't step in here. Even though you know i know i know this kid is at risk and no we do need to step in. We need to know how to do that. And it is our job to their children. And i think you know sports if we look at a lot of the most impact i mean the the leading contributor to mental health issues in our country stem from adverse childhood experiences stem from kids being hurt for for suits for long periods of time traumatic experiences which we know offset those kids up to live a certain way all of anxiety into the rest of their lives. How do they manage that anxiety. How do they manage that. You know that easiness within cy. And i think one of.

"When you can't leave your house and we're locked down. The level of child abuse keeps on often times. There's nobody coming in to check on those kids so they don't have a touch point. Teacher can't see them. Their coach friends parents their friends. So sadly our kids are probably higher risk ten months into this lock down here that sheldon kennedy former national hockey player in his leading advocate for abused over. He's our guest today on the podcast to and welcome to the podcast. I'm your host. Perry bell guard national chief of the assembly of first nations. I is a plains. Cree word for you. All persevere are in other words let's keep going and don't give up on this podcast. We discussed the leading issues facing first nations peoples with top experts with elders and community leaders and our guest. Today is a definition of outcome. Aimal sheldon kennedy played eight years in the national hockey league with detroit red wings. The calgary flames the boston bruins as a teenager. He led the swift current broncos to a memorial cup championship the best team in junior hockey. But it was also we have current. That kennedy was sexually abused for years by his coach. Graham james when kennedy revealed this abuse publicly towards the end of his pro career. Graham james was convicted and sent to prison. He has since been convicted for the abuse of several more players for kennedy. This mark the start of a life dedicated to supporting and speaking out for sexual abuse survivors his leadership including founding child advocacy center in calgary and the respect group saw him being awarded the order of canada sheldon kennedy. Welcome to our podcast. Thank you thanks for having me on okay so sheldon. We're ten months into this kobe. Nineteen lockdown. i'm curious from your perspective. What are you hearing about how this is affecting the levels of child abuse and our ability to help those being abused. Well i i think that I don't think i know that You know the the the level of child abuse has gone up and the level of abusive general whether it's domestic violence or whatever has gone up We know that the majority of child abuse cases happened in the home. Or by somebody that child Knows or is a caregiver. So you know. I think a lot of times. What we know is that kids. Leave the house to go to some place safe and that whether it be your school your recreation facility You know a friend's place that might be safe and when you can't leave your house in we're locked down Those kids don't have those escape so that the level of child abuse keeps going up and up and And a lot of times. There's nobody coming in to check on those kids so they don't have a touch point. Their teacher can't see them. Their coach their their friends parents. Their friends so sadly these issues Are not going down and our our kids are probably a higher risk Ten months into this. This lockdown for sure dc. Any answers to the. what do they. I know the vaccines are coming. You know there's some hope with the vaccines coming to canada. But with the kobe. In the lockdown the numbers are going up. And there's not much I'll call support mechanisms in place for these young children. Do you have any ideas or what what could possibly be done in this pandemic to deal with this. Well i mean you know. I think it goes back to whether we're in covert or not in code levin. The reality is is that you know You know. I mean i guess if we look at the numbers coming out of the the now calgary chill-out see center most child axes centers across the country. I mean just in the calgary region. I know we were. We were averaging two thousand investigations in the most serious nature. A year Not we felt. We were only reaching ten percent of the kids. Fifty percent of those kids of the investigations were happening within the whole and ninety five percent of those investigations were happening from somebody child so our perception of individuals that are criminals. Or the you know. Hurt people that. Are you know lurking around trees wearing Klaas isn't real in these cases. So i think if we look at kovin when it's made us do stay home or you know state to those closest us in a lot of instances of you know when when those kids aren't safe they are stopped and i think you know one of our biggest challenges is really understanding the impact that this that this crime has on our children and the law Long lasting impact. You know we talk about the scars that last a lifetime. I mean they are real and you know. I think that we need to give these issues and the and to be able to understand You know that this is a health now. This is a significant health. Now and you know we look at the you know we look at the the impacts of abuse and the you know how you drives children to addiction to depression to all the mental health issues to anger to shame guilt to you name it. I mean you name it. Rake in a you know it's it's a those are significant issues that we deal with as a country as a community The costs are overbearing. And i think we need to be able to give you know being able to you. I guess you know position resources to be able to understand the reality of the outcomes of of this type of behavior. The air us okay. Well sheldon we've known each other for a number of years now and i earlier on. I've said that you're really a great example. Of what autumn may look really means which is perseverance and never to give up Hobby how have you been able to do that. You know All these years. You know the all the hardships in the the abuses that you suffered how you've been able to endure. Tell our listeners. Hollyman able to deal with that. Well i think harry lake. I went from you know a kid. That was this small town kid on the farm. You know middle middle of right on the border manitoba scotland and just so excited to be able to get an opportunity to go play junior hockey. I meet this individual and You know couldn't margin in my while you know in my dreams of you know what was going to happen and.

"We did hear of children's bones. Being found in the foundations of buildings. When schools were dismantled. Reheard heard stories of babies being buried. I can barely talk about this myself. We heard of children being thrown into furnaces. I always come back to this and not that. It's right for anyone but these were children. These were children the little ones who woken up this week. Income research children calling out to all of. That's murray wilson former commissioner on the truth and reconciliation commission. She's our guest today on the alchemy. Mcleod guests said to wild. Welcome to the podcast. I'm your host. Perry bell guard national chief december. First nations amok is a plains. Cree word for you. All persevere are other words let's keep going and don't give up on this podcast. We discussed leading issues facing first nations. Peoples top experts with elders and community leaders. And today we're discussing the recent shocking and heartbreaking discovery of the gravesites of two hundred and fifteen children. They were found. On the site of the former kamloops indian residential school at the kamloops up mc first nation in british columbia it is shocking but not surprising for the thousands of first nations people who survived the genocide residential schools are for those who followed the investigation of the truth and reconciliation commission into the residential schools. And the report that came out in two thousand fifteen. Its final report detail. The deaths of thousands of children at residential schools and rightly predicted that. There were still many more. Who's desks weren't accounted for today. We're very grateful to be joined from yellowknife in the northwest territories. Marie wilson. She was one of the three commissioners of truth and reconciliation commission. So marie big. Welcome to our podcast. Thank you so much. I'm so glad to be here to summary. What was your reaction last week. When you first heard about the discovery of the gravesite at kamloops you know. I received this news early in the morning. Just as i was waking and my first physical reaction was just immediately to well up with tears and to sort of sit up and try to take it all in I immediately went as they prepared for my own morning rituals. And i and i'm just radley at her. I picked up my. She'd go which was conveyed to me with a particular responsibility by the women of she sacerby when we held hearings there back in two thousand thirteen and as the one female commissioner. The mother of the group i was Given the responsibility in the direction to do all that we could to make sure that the little children were freed and that they were never forgotton and that they knew that we would not stop looking for them and so I held them in that way In my in my arms and my next thought as i think any human being in this country would have been west to think of my own children and my own grandchildren And to hold them close in my thought but i immediately transported myself to the the heartbreak That had to be resounding In in the whole area of kamloops. Because i remember my very first community event ask commissioner. It was before the three commissioners were even functioning as a team actually It was in the first weeks. August of two thousand nine. The gathering that i went to wasn't kamloops. Remember being invited to tour the school and beyond the grounds and i remembered clearly and it came surging back to me deep in my gut. The feeling that i had at that time the credible heaviness that i had there and the weight of that gathering and at the same time The embrace of the determination that was expressed by the people who had prepared that event with so much love and care and and hope that we would be able to start shedding light on all of this history so it was a barrage of feelings on all those levels as human being as a mother as a grandmother as a commissioner and as one in this country who joins the in the morning and the outpouring of grief on and the expectation that we can and must do much better. Yeah the the sad part was that are survivors of the resentful school. Set for many many years that there was a lot of death and a lot of children missing and not accounted for the schools. The sad part was that nobody believes them. Nobody believes survivors. And so now. Here's a horrific evidence and all all week as i've been invited to to comment on this. It's one of the things that i've said. Is you know. I reject the word discovery. It is a validation. It is a validation of what we have been told over and over and over again what we wrote about in detail what we articulated particularly and specifically in our calls to action seventy to seventy five And what we heard from our very first national event when there was a minister of the then conservative government sitting in circle with a former chief saying their hope for us is that they would we would be able to find their missing relative. The issue of missing children was raised from the very earliest days and has been available as information to anyone paying attention to our work to anyone listening to survivors and sitting in whatever stripe of government. Because i being permission has been available to us all. Thank you for that Validation in terms of the survivors in discovery really isn't the right word. The validation of words validation of testimony. The validation of statements by survivors is very powerful with this horrific evidence. That was found that based on your work as a commissioner of the truth and reconciliation commission What are your thoughts regarding the unmarked graves. Think still exists out there. And i know there was documented of forty one hundred deaths. I believe at the schools Can you shed any more light about the who were when. Why are some of the statistics or numbers Some of the issues that you thought.
"perry" Discussed on Ahkameyimok Podcast with Perry Bellegarde
"Perry that are heading to more incarceration longer prison sentences and everything else while every other group including other groups of color heading down. So i put it in our hands so that we can make the system work for our people's One of the things. I used to always say in your comments like a first nations. People were first nations people being treated like second class citizens living in third world conditions. That's right and so bring about change. And so even when the justice system. And you're a lawyer so you know about common law and the law. How would you see. We're going to look at restorative justice incorporating first nations law natural into that system as well if we're gonna talk about justice reconciliation. Well it's already supposed to be this. These are commitments. That had already been made and they're just not being followed through on a judge's already are supposed to be considering all alternatives to incarceration in terms of sentencing for indigenous peoples. And they don't do it. i mean they. It has not happened even though they're supposed to. And you know. I had the privilege and i deliberately chose to study law at the university of ottawa. Because we did talk about not just civil law and common law but also indigenous law and we looked at criminal law through that lens and so a gain all this left. I've sound like a broken record at this. Point is to bring the p the leaders with the knowledge about how to integrate those an implemented and enforce them into those systems. Because it's not working any other way and frankly there's so much leadership in the indigenous community. Why why would we need any agent. Any intermediaries anyway You know put those people in the positions where they can They can make the changes that are necessary. It's so complex even when you start talking about restorative justice and and it's basically comes down to recognition as a as another set of laws in addition to comment on civil law. And then you start looking at tribal courts and then our own pleased in our own laws and hauer. They enforced in one of the things that was talked about was policing as an essential service. And that's one of the things we're pushing for and that was contained in the throne speech because right now in canada. There's only a program. It's the first stations policing program. It's a program and it's forty eight percent picked up by the provinces and fifty two percent by the federal government. But because of all the things that are happening we saw what happened with the rookie mountain police in the in the violent. Take of and adam and alberto at all the deaths from from from coming into mental wellness checks. People are dying so there's a whole push now and so there is movement towards pleasing as essential service. What are your thoughts on that moving forward as an in terms of twenty twenty and beyond while i will take my instruction. That's something else that i said. In the speech. I think freshman english but i take instruction on those issues from the leadership such as yourself. I can say in terms of the black community. What we want to see is the is the police getting out of anything that is related to to the essential basic security. Because what has happened in our communities is that policing has just expanded almost exponentially so that is the social service agency. The mental health service agency. They're all kinds of interactions with the police. That should not be having with the community. They shouldn't be the first people on the scene and people are dying. You know mostly indigenous and black people are dying because of you know those failures so we want to see a a a reduction in those kind of services and a focus on the things that only they can do and the money and the resources of that are freed up being used to create the new services new mental health response services new community services that.

"It's why i was so disappointed to see the frontier project. stopped in alberta. Because they didn't think tech didn't think they could get it by an ideological trudeau. Cabinet techs first order of business. Going back to two thousand and eight. I'm sure you know this. Chief was engaging indigenous communities and there were i think fourteen benefit agreements developed over that decade plus of of engagement and what canadian companies are now leaders in is not just the the application approvals for exploration or development there's actual partnerships now being developed as a result of our supreme court jurisprudence going back Thirty years where companies that want to have success partner very early and tech did that with the frontier project. I want to see more of that. Because i think the earlier you engage with indigenous partners As you said those sorts titleholders those land owners guardian owners of the land. The more you're going to have success for the project in the long-term last week aaron we had Prime minister mulroney on and He had some interesting comments. I'm gonna. I'm gonna share two points and i want to get your thoughts and views and what he shared because in canada He made two very important points that the royal commission on average people. The art cap recommendations is a road map for reconciliation candidate. If all those recommendations were implemented. I wanna get your your points on on on our gap and as well. He made a statement. That rather than put your smartest brightest most effective efficient person into finance treasury board our global affairs nice affairs. I think that going forward. The prime minister elected in the near future should look at his very best talent and rather put him or her in finance. Should put him in charge of indigenous affairs. So what are your thoughts. Views on our gap in terms of implementation and on that whole point about having the most effective minister enlargement digit services. Canada and our relations. Well that's great suggestions. I have great respect for prime minister. Mulroney and i think there's a lot to learn from our cap. In fact chief. You might be shocked to know a few years ago. When i started researching things related to the missing and murdered indigenous women's inquiry and the push to that when we were in the tailing the harper government I was the first to ask for substantial research to be done on our cap in ten years. According to what the library had said. I'm a research guy. I get into the nitty gritty. And what what bothers me. Quite frankly about are both parties going back. Fifty years is each government comes in and creates kind of a commission mentality rather than an action mentality. And i'll i'll say going back to trudeau and crocetta with the white paper and citizens plus then you had Maruni with With meat and then ultimately charlottetown the charlottetown portion having more indigenous engagement. then of course the original meech round. Then there was the royal commission on aboriginal peoples. The truth and reconciliation commission missing emergent indigenous. Women's inquiry you know some of the underlying issues in my w were brought up in our cap ward. It's enough enough of the talk. Let's get some action done. And that's why. I've said. I view drinking water on reserve as a human rights and it will be a priority that that i'm willing to do anything to make that human right a reality. I think there's been some progress made in the last few years. But i'm willing to see leadership from all sectors including indigenous leadership the private sector have solutions..

"I came third at. I had a great set of policies in that And they were developed in consultation with some. I need nation's leaders and I'm very excited about implementing them all right in your platform. You talk about a national resource revenue sharing summit. You also talked about employing a national news procurement policy which is always huge and part of that those also having access to capital in dealing with the bonding issue and then pose cova. Nineteen you in terms of developing an economic recovery plan how you see first nations fitting into an economic recovery plan and even the sense of. There's this theme now called building back better or trying to find the balance between the environment and the economy. What are your thoughts on. Some of those statements going forward. I great question. You know look. Canada is the best resource producer in the world. If you look it. What's called environmental social governance. I know you're familiar with this. Es g frameworks to sort of say are you looking at the environmental impact and mitigating against that social impact in including benefit agreements and participation from indigenous groups both directly impacted or supporting a large project in this overall governance theme rule of law human rights records. I think canadian resource producers whether they're oiling gas whether forestry mining minerals we are world leaders in the s g and in fact the duty to consult and engage with indigenous peoples developed now. For over a generation supreme court Jurisprudence has us at the forefront of making sure that resource development is done responsibly. You mitigate the impacts on the environment but also maximize the benefit for for indigenous communities and and direct stakeholders in a project. So this is where i think. The relaunch of the economy is key. And where i think. Igniting the indigenous economy and leadership is central. I i really do think. The justin trudeau has left. Canada more divided and less prosperous after four years of prime minister. Many of the ideological moves. He made actually hurt indigenous canadians. More then Other canadians if you look at the cancellation unilaterally of northern gateway pipeline for example. That was that was owned equity owned to a one third level by indigenous communities. No consultation with them on the cancellation of the project. I view that as a violation of the duty to consult. I've spoken to two chiefs like dell swampy and others about the tremendous loss potential that these projects have so i think as we position canada as a global..

"And i knew the judgement wasn't right so i did appeal and then i won the appeal court. How many years did it take from. Start to finish starting your first lawsuit and then to your victory on your second one. How many years did that take Well two thousand and ten was as we talked about. And then i think the trial was in two thousand seventeen and then the film You know came out and at the end of the first cut of the film. It says i lost which is where things were at when the film came out. But then i went to the appeal court in one so a new cut of the film was released. That says in a groundbreaking decision the appeal court. Overturned the initial ruling in what year was at two thousand eighteen almost like almost like a thirteen fourteen year journey. Because you bought the painting in two thousand and five and then at twenty ten at the art show you pulled it down so then from twenty ten until twenty eighteen proximate. Yep you know eight year journey almost. Yeah and there's there's more perry know the the film was the catalyst for reopened investigation by the police and It's not the end of the story. Tell us more about that. Sure i was on tour. And i got a call from a detective and thunder bay and he told me that he'd heard about the movie and he needed to see it and so i had a copy of the film sent to him and shortly thereafter. They opened a an investigation into the whole fraud. Situation and I have been working with the police whenever they need me to and They can't tell me everything but there has been a lot of progress made. They've they've interviewed a lot of people and You can expect to hear more so what we've learned an i. I've watched a documentary and there are no fakes. And what you learned is that Yeah the fix nor the nora morsel. Fakes the original ones. Don't have the signature on the back you know. They don't have that signature on the back and correct the drawing of the thunderbird on the back. They don't have that on the back. The original ones they. The original no remorse does have the the celebrex right on the front which refer yawn the front in that refers to his name. Copper thunderbird correct so so anything with on the back. Red flags automatically come up. That comes out pretty clear in the in the documentary. Yeah and i think one of the the hopes for this Investigation and all of this is that we will eventually sort of clear some of this muddiness and really bring back nor vows legacy and protect it because he is such an important and great artist. Well that's really what it's all about. You know guys like in a closing line the documentary you just said i just wanted to buy a painting and because novell more so is one of our heroes. He was so gifted and so talented. So spiritual So where does this story. Now stand in terms of investigations and the legacy of nora more so from your perspective. Can you make some comments on that. Sure well where there is the art perspective. But there's also the The social perspective you know when we learn of news as we learned you know in the last few weeks about residential schools And they're what they're finding and when you look at what we looked at in the film where there's there's young men who are leaving their communities just to further their education and they're being preyed upon there's A real connection and it really illuminates that. These problems continue and man and in different ways and so i think as we all try to work towards Truth and reconciliation and that's hard work and it's going to take a long time and commitment that all of these stories are important and they need to be heard as difficult as they are and that is my hope that that continues and that friendships and teamwork that i felt with You know dallas thompson and and other indigenous friends that i made along the way can act as an example and and can continue in other ways.

"In you realize that intergenerational trauma it it's embedded i looked to the hard work ahead of us addressing the real impact of intergenerational trauma the loss of control in social life the loss of control in spirituality or religion the loss of control in our health in our language. You know when we're doing the gravesites rejuvenation rate now. I'm lake three steps ahead. Thinking our children in our children yet on borne intergenerational trauma is still happening hud we change it to intergenerational transfer to make sure that that vertical value lineage is giving stronger from grandma to mum to daughter granddaughter. And you know the gravesite is is really tough right now. But you know. I'm already thinking hotter. We use this momentum this moment to change to intergenerational transfer to make sure that as chief dan george said in elementary confederation that we can be the greatest nation that we can be within a hundred years. You know so no i. I drive on that as my motivation to to get through this moment focusing on the great site chief cabinets the There's two things in canada. They've always maintained that have really hurt. First nations people In a in a big way and we still feel the intergenerational trauma effects of these things and The first thing of course is the residential school policy in which i say was a genocide because little children are put into these institutions. Everything good about being a first nations is no good. You're beautiful long hair is cut. Your language was forbidden. Your cut off from your family your community yourself your nation and everything good about like even yourself is no good you know this was taught and then physical abuse mental abuse sexual abuse and we see the intergenerational trauma reflected in the forty thousand children in foster care the jails are disproportionate of our people in jails in high youth. Suicide rates list goes on and on and the other thing was the indian act eighteen. Seventy six indian act you know which allowed the control of first nations people. We couldn't leave the reserve without a permit. Didn't have access to a lawyer with till nineteen fifty. One didn't even vote couldn't vote in federal elections till nineteen sixty one and it broke down are hereditary chiefs inter-clan systems and outlawed sundance pot. Let all these between those two things. The the residential school system in the indian act in that internet basically allowed for the exploitation of our land and territory and resources so people need to understand that those are the two things now going forward in spite of all those things are resilient should be celebrated but i always ask our guest as well. What provides you hope. National feminine approach is kind of in a personal matter of my journey so far. Might my dad made that My biggest inspiration him in my mom and my dad used to have this. This nail beside our door used to put our house key on it than one time on ten. I seen them put the house key on this nail in put a sweater over it in after he opened the door. And i'm like dad. Why do you put the key there. Someone's going to break in. He says you know my boy. We don't walk with our head up around here. And i'm like what you mean bad like i could see it there. You know in you know just just what inspires me is. My dad pushed me and pushed me and pushed me my entire life to show this world. That indian can succeed at a white man's way if that's education if it's golf in on my mom a few years ago i took her to bertel. That's where she went to residential school and she didn't want to go but deep down. I knew she did. She needed closure. She told me her residential school in no the stories that she she told me oven. You know from from that tour. I i realized that my mom is my my warrior nece world on on how she raised me and you know realizing what what kind of life she actually had to go through any. I'm optimistic of the future. No i got a call. Last week from phil fontaine and unifil was the first one to really go public in the nineties about residential school. In you know he told me you speak for me. You keep speaking. And i'm like holy cow like this is so inspiring. Like thank you fill in. You know. I i you know i. I bring hope as i look at kids today in. I'm like okay. The past we cannot change.

"At the site of a former residential school cranbrook. This follow the fine of two hundred and fifteen children's graves at the site of the kamloops indian residential school in saskatchewan seven hundred fifty one unmarked graves were found at the former maryvale indian residential school operated from eighteen. Ninety eight to nineteen ninety-six. All three schools were run by the catholic church with an aim wiping out indigenous language and culture. These gravesites our validations of survivor accounts of the brutal physical mental and sexual abuse experienced by tens of thousands of indigenous children in residential schools over many generations. And today we are grateful and thankful to be joined by cadmus delore chief in a proud member of the causses. First nation. Where those seven hundred fifty unmarked graves. Where found chief cadmus. Welcome to all to our alabama podcast. Thank you so chief. What was your reaction when you started discovering those graves and the numbers. They seems kept growing and growing and growing. What was your. What was your initial reaction. Before i explain. I just wanted to mention that there is a one eight six six number for anybody listening. That may be triggered. This is important to all of us but at the same time our street so so please reach out. We're all in this together. Two years ago houses first nation leap in doing this great check rejuvenation for for a few years. Now the planning and we were going to start last year. We always knew these were unmarked graves area. So we partnered with sas poly technic institutions to scotch when because a covert we pause the year and We decided to start june twenty twenty one and a week before we are going to start on the kamloops residential school on cover two hundred fifteen graves and so we like. What are we gonna find. An though you know growing up on cows you hear the oral stories. You know there's unmarked graves there. So wendy technicians came. We bought a pack of two hundred flags just from home depot. Just just your little steel metal with low plastics leg at the end and within the day and a half we use not bar our i pack and we still had many square meters to go so as more flags hit the ground as more as the radar beat than we confirmed that there is a high chance there's a grave here. It discovery emotionally very You know like. I starting at worried right away on. The people are seeing these flags. People would stop by ask. What are those flags and you know. I would tell them in a watching their reaction. I realized they were getting triggered. So where a kid got. Increase our services our support here and so five. My last wednesday. We finished with over seven hundred flags in the ground. And that's when we were like okay. We got to control this. And we gotta tell this story while chief like i knew you grew up on the reserve. So you had an idea where these gravesites were like. Was there something exactly that that spot to to keep researching investigating. This was a roman catholic run grave site and so You know the name it was somewhat. You know me if i can if i can say it like that and you know it started right at where this walking pass started even as a kid. I knew that's where it started. There was oral stories. There's graves on the road. There's graves across the the fence and you know they're roser today in infrastructure today as we grew around that area after residential school time and so we we asked the technicians to check those areas. We didn't have any hits. But we kind of i knew where it started bringing an elder in. We brought it announced that used to work for the old blades in the sixties. And she confirmed this is where it starts and so we started there at our square meters off as one area. We just went down the the walk path. And the when you get closer to the cross or in the seventies that's when the headstones of today are still there but that's when you all the roman catholic church stopped overseeing the gravesite at that kind because that's where our headstones are from our community gravesite that took over in the seventies. Aw so chief again. This was a catholic run Graveyard and there was a catholic church. There in the catholic church implemented noon ran residential school. There there are stories that in ninth in the nineteen sixties at the catholic church. Bulldozer took how many grave markers at maryvale. And we all know that's against the law to remove head markers. Have you heard those stories and do you think. This was an attempt to hide the large numbers of graves. Our children that died in their care. There are many oral stories as to to the removal of the head. Stones and you know survivors are telling me their their their view. And i'm listening in you. Know one view was is that there was a priest named father carrier. He was upset at the way that the gravesite wasn't looking meat. So he removed the headstones. He had his maintenance person. Push the headstones on the north side of the gravesite by the river. There some bears there today. Were actually searching for them right now. Those those buried headstones and a second story was is that Father look only got an argument with one of the leadership of cows is in retaliation removed the head stones so national chief. I'm bored in the eighties but you know as the spokesperson for the causses. First nation as their chief. I am listening but the main thing on this is that the fought. The priest had the authorization to save or remove these headstones and he decided to remove these headstones so you mentioned survivors and their stories in their teachings you know and their experiences Let's talk about like things that's like you've listened to many of them are there is there are any such stories that stick out in your mind as the most impactful are relevant from any of the survivors. You listen to you. Know i I read a lot of mental health books national chief. I feel my locust control on my personal journey is Well set for whatever's in front of me and hearing some of these stories you know just just shakes me to the core on some of the you know why i had one survivor come to the gravesite and and tell me that he actually dug holes and these were his is his while friends. At the time. I i had others common you know. Just just say that you know the years of being an altar boy or you know. The role the females played with with the roman catholic church has little kids. You know their stories are are being shared. You know specifically with me as you know. I want to be a good listener is one that sticks out to me. And if you aren't baptized. The roman catholic church would not allow you to be buried in their gravesite. At that time it was their grave gravesite and a few have come forward and said that. Their baby wasn't baptized and they. They know where they're buried on the outside of the old fence so we asked them to stand where they thought. The baby was in national chief. We found that the spots and To stand in there in watching them like you know shed some tears at noon. It's almost like closure like know in. I know i reference and said listen like we are going to put something here in honor. This like like this is healing. This is getting.

"Scotch when you need them in british columbia so colonization or pressure control. Yeah that's basically the intention. The residential schools colonization pressure control Really breakdown identity family community nations. Self that's it in a nutshell and so these residential schools but there's Also industrial schools so back in my home territory. The regina industrial school was part of that whole system and so these schools these initial designs of these schools I heard a comment and read something recently. That a lot of them didn't include playgrounds but did include graveyard's. What are your thoughts on that statements that is to say at least i vomit and everything schools were wrapped in theory anyways. We're all in of the logic of civilising people. So indians were encouraged at some schools. And this went terribly wrong for the government to play games but only the play games that had rules and regulations. Twelve administrators were encouraged to To introduce hockey and baseball and those like things but don't let them play across. Across his justice. Advocating they run around in each other with. Sticks is pretty much was described so even recreation to the extent that it existed was about ordered that. Why so many schools at hockey teams might woman tools at the brass fans. These interesting because all of those things were purveyors of order and discipline those the two words like you were asked her and the problem with indian parents is that they didn't understand order and discipline the medieval back to that over and over again indian. Parents are too permissive. They don't spank their children. They don't raise them up to be orderly disciplined adults. Wow and that's what you want it you want. I mean the number of times. I've seen statement saying when these kids graduate. We've created this social psychological alchemy. They will no longer be a burden to the state but in a supporter of state. You're going to convert these people as as as reliable osculation john. There's thousands of indigenous first nations. Children died at essential schools. They died from abuse in disease. Neglecting hunger You know the truth and reconciliation center. Manitoba i think documented like within the residential school system that documented deaths were approximately four thousand and There's probably more as evidence from kamloops you know. And so getting the proper research done and the investigations done but to what degree was this planned as part of the whole residential school experience. And why like. We've called it a genocide of our people. What are your thoughts on that. Oh when i was a research director for the truth and reconciliation commission. We had long meetings with senior lawyers at at harvard and ucla on the issue of genocide. Why what was the genocide l. Could you describe what a genocide was. We have the genocide convention thing which people often point to saying while removing children from their parents and educating them outside of their culture is is genocide so sad. Removing removing children forcibly removing children from their families and inflicting harm. Those are the two elements in the un definition of genocide is a third element and that's intention And that's where all of us have tripped up right. Because when you talking about genocide you'd wanna make talking about -struction of culture. We all agree. It was that cultural genocide. What we don't agree on was the extent to which it was genocide. I would be Compared to what went on in in that c- germany or turkey. Or these places where you were actually out to wipe out that route. Whatever was as a physical entity right not just destroy their their social relations but actually kill off all the people if that's the definition of genocide. None of us have ever been able to find it. Certainly it's consequential physical genocide right. Children were moved and put into place residential schools badly funded. They were bad said they were open to the two big killers all which were kilson measles and of course to the other soldiers plane process. Which was it's a process where children were ashamed about their parents about their traditions about the language. Etcetera so forth. This was a real killing off right and whereas we know children were taught in some respects both. Unfortunately to be avis white people. The mimic their own oppressors. So we know that if you're looking for where sexual and physical abuse comes from on first nations reserves for stations communities you can point back to the residential school where children learned that physical violence was a road to power and mimic that sort of behaviour when they got home that that unfortunately resocialization worked with respect to all the nasty stuff right like division communities and empower situations especially women and all that kind of stuff which is the nasty bits of non indigenous cultures to. We had the indianap- as well in eighteen. Seventy six you know where we weren't allowed to leave the reserve without a permit from the indian age until nineteen fifty one and no access to legal counsel to help fight our fights and claims so nineteen fifty either and we couldn't vote in elections to nineteen sixty one and of course he not also broke down. Our systems of governance in imposed a two year elective system on our people so between the residential schools which was a breakdown of identity and self that everything good about being an indian is no good. Your long hair is no good. Your language is no good. Your family's no good in top of that. The starvation in the abuse of always said. You're not healthy when you come out of that system so would you. Was that the intention. If you look at the indian. It's easy enough to talk about social engineering or an attempt to social engineering in the way. But if you look at the indian act even the most horrible innocent sections of you begin to realize pretty quickly that the people who wrote the indians and its amendments need in fact to know anything about it seemed like Because if you look at what that act says it simply takes indian communities any individuals and rewrites them as averaged complains people are both special over plains cree for range. People band membership was a very elastic thing. If perry belgarde family doesn't want to stay in that particular ban got on the horse and they wrote awesome. They joined another band that came along. That was not possible. You will remember of the band that you were born in and if you went across the river and tried to live in that other band you were dressed faster than the rights in that band or into the canadian government so right from the ground floor. That act was an act of social and economic reorganization. so you said white guys in ottawa. Who writing law didn't know a damn thing about indians. What they had no was what making the occurs looked like they were indigenous and you read the act section by section suddenly realize. Ain't oh the seconds right. This is another form of integration and cultural destruction every bit as vicious in terms of its negative impact every bit as destructive as.

She was one of the three commissioners of truth and reconciliation commission. So marie big. Welcome to our podcast. Thank you so much. I'm so glad to be here to summary. What was your reaction last week. When you first heard about the discovery of the gravesite at kamloops you know. I received this news early in the morning. Just as i was waking and my first physical reaction was just immediately to well up with tears and to sort of sit up and try to take it all in I immediately went as they prepared for my own morning rituals. And i and i'm just radley at her. I picked up my. She'd go which was conveyed to me with particular responsibility by the women of she sacerby when we held hearings there back in two thousand thirteen and as the one female commissioner. The mother of the group i was Given the responsibility in the direction to do all that we could to make sure that the little children were freed and that they were never forgotton and that they knew that we would not stop looking for them and so I held them in that way In my in my arms and my next thought as i think any human being in this country would have been west to think of my own children and my own grandchildren And to hold them close in my thought but i immediately transported myself to the the heartbreak That had to be resounding In in the whole area of kamloops. Because i remember my very first community event ask commissioner. It was before the three commissioners were even functioning as a team actually It was in the first weeks. August of two thousand nine. The gathering that i went to wasn't kamloops. Remember being invited to tour the school and beyond the grounds and i remembered clearly and it came surging back to me deep in my gut. The feeling that i had at that time the credible heaviness that i had there and the weight of that gathering and at the same time The embrace of the determination that was expressed by the people who had prepared that event with so much love and care and and hope that we would be able to start shedding light on all of this history so it was a barrage of feelings on all those levels as human being as a mother as a grandmother as a commissioner and as one in this country who joins the in the morning and the outpouring of grief on and the expectation that we can and must do much better. Yeah the the sad part was that are survivors of the resentful school. Set for many many years that there was a lot of death and a lot of children missing and not accounted for the schools. The sad part was that nobody believes them. Nobody believes survivors. And so now. Here's a horrific evidence and all all week as i've been invited to to comment on this. It's one of the things that i've said. Is you know. I reject the word discovery. It is a validation. It is a validation of what we have been told over and over and over again what we wrote about in detail what we articulated particularly and specifically in our calls to action seventy to seventy five And what we heard from our very first national event when there was a minister of the then conservative government sitting in circle with a former chief saying their hope for us is that they would we would be able to find their missing relative. The issue of missing children was raised from the very earliest days and has been available as information to anyone paying attention to our work to anyone listening to survivors and sitting in whatever stripe of government. Because i being permission has been available to us all. Thank you for that Validation in terms of the survivors in discovery really isn't the right word. The validation of words validation of testimony. The validation of statements by survivors is very powerful with this horrific evidence. That was found that based on your work as a commissioner of the truth and reconciliation commission What are your thoughts regarding the unmarked graves. Think still exists out there. And i know there was documented. Forty one hundred deaths. I believe at these schools Can you shed anymore light about the who were when why are some of the statistics or numbers Some of the issues that you thought might still be there from your work as commissioner. Well i remember exactly you know national chief. It was exactly six years to the day yesterday. that we released our calls to action in our summary report and i remember in my part of our speeches that day I talked about very specifically the missing children. And the little ones who had not yet been found in the little ones to use such a crass term who had not yet been put back together and what i mean by that is the total disregard with which their little lives. And they're passing was documented We had scraps of information. We knew a child Ten years old. We knew if a girl no name or age indicated or little. Johnny no information about a last name or where they came from Some of the information came from indian agent records some from the churches from different denominations some from provincial records and and the point is that we initially confirmed in our report. Thirty two hundred children that we knew had died while at the schools And that was from a combination of records were children were named and records of children who were unnamed. Almost half of the children listed. There had no cause of death A third of them had no indication of whether they were male or female and a quarter of them did not have a name of any kind. And so that's what. I mean by the scraps of information and the incredible disrespect and disregard with which these little ones who should have been Brought home in ceremony were dismissed off and literally buried out of sight out of mind. For all this time we Then pushed.
