However, if trump says there's an insurrection, then he's allowed to do that right so basically. They can do anything they want to do as we saw during the COVID crackdown. States across the United States just completely destroyed the economy shutdown people's ability to make a living for themselves and. They shouldn't be able to do that, but they did it anyway. Handle wanted it, and the people are not only did they want it, but the everyone else's let him get away with it, and as far as military in the streets. Guess what?

This is a candlelight vigil supposed to be a candlelight vigil, but there's been some buzz on social media, suggesting that violence may be happening during or after the vigil now whether that has anything to do with the people at the visual is a whole other question, because just because somebody says something on social media doesn't mean it's going to happen in real life, and they could very well be agents that worked for the government. Before trying. To Gin up conflict and destruction, because they want to have the excuse to come in and crack some heads. Keep Your eyes out for piles of bricks around Manchester. That's another room.

They have some sort of non lethal rounds in the in those magazines, but they do not have empty magazines. Neither do the people of New Hampshire. That's true, which is why I don't think that that's why. I don't think riots like we've seen in these other places are as likely to happen in Manch or maybe Manchester of new, Hampshire, maybe Never Sheila North Boston. But, but not around here not here, not not in Manchester Manchester at least judging by what happened on Saturday. I was at the black lives. Event on Saturday. It was entirely peaceful.

I don't know what they said. I didn't read the details on the story, but they those two were arrested.

Police moved in on the tie. In the Naga Mohawks Rail Blockade Near Belleville Ontario. Several people were arrested. The barricade had been set up more than two weeks ago in support of the Weser Watan hereditary chiefs in British Columbia who are opposing a natural gas pipeline project in northern BC this blockade and others across the country had begun to squeeze the Canadian economy CNN. Shut down its eastern freight network and via rail suspended all passenger service across Canada. There were layoffs in the rail industry and businesses were beginning to feel some shortages. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had been calling for patients and dialogue but a few days ago that changed and after the Police Action. He said his government had no choice for wind. It became clear that there was no reciprocal openness to dialogue from the West Western hereditary leader chiefs. We made new shift in our posture in response to the police action. There were demonstrations in Ottawa and ruling blockades in Quebec from the Mohawk said. GonNa why and and Sheila North a former grand chief of Manitoba says this dispute is not over. This is not done by by a long shot and this can only be resolved if there is actual commitment by the federal government. I believe to move on the long studying issues that face the meanwhile Trudeau says his government is still on the path to reconciliation and will continue to work towards that but the barricades had to come down for national native news.

Wicks has this report. Last year's failed riot boosting statute had a companion law that survived called the Peace Fund created to collect revenue from civil penalties judgments and finds the fund exists to pay expenses for state and local governments dealing with protesters against the keystone pipeline.

"That form of government that form of working together. It has always been here on this continent canadians. We need to understand that being in saskatoon. Ask attune was my very first time to the city and i was when i got there too. I was very much thinking about colton bushy. She i was thinking about what had happened and how that had just happened not too far away in a courtroom from where we were. I was thinking about the tommy douglas. I wonder what he would think for someone who was so important in the shaping of the healthcare system in this country yet for indigenous people and tyrannous people have been left out of the healthcare system in so many ways. I was also remembering remembering looking out into the audience as soon as i took to the stage and seeing sheila north wilson sheila north wilson is the former chief grand chief chief of the m._k._o. I also remember the chief from lack laura being there as well and that was the community feeling feeling that again was incredible so let's go to the audience discussion now and one person in that audience in saskatoon had this question about indigenous this communities in other countries now i have a question which relates to your last message about finding pathways forward for addressing the historical and ongoing doing injustices taking place in canada. I'm wondering whether they're examples from across the world to which we can drawn in terms of grappling with their own experiences here in canada and you can speak to that yup. Thank you for that. I will point to the sammy sammy in northern norway. It's really quite an interesting system so sammy psychologist ages. Sammy researchers have created this incredible treatment place where an entire family is treated if the child is suffering. The child has mental mental health issues so you're given an entire month off of your job. Get a doctor's note. You know everyone you get to leave your work as a family you go and you live in in this. This town house is about twelve townhouses in this. This treatment facility area and the entire family is given treatment. There's there's a school there too and so the kids go to school during the day for that month and while the kids are away the parents are in treatment and then when the kids come home they're treated needed as a family they also have land based programs cultural programmes and everything is done in the sami indigenous way and everyone the family and also their counsellors. They go out onto the land for about three or four days of camping traditional experience. It's meant to bond and sort of return to the land return to that feeling of who they are and it has had incredible results that the donut of care because that's what we need to do you just can't treat the children you have to also treat the parents into lectures and in the book and i think you allude to it very clearly in that clip that the sami tammy standout as a an indigenous group of people who are both empowered and <hes> <hes> and motivated to create their own suicide prevention program that works is this model. Are you seeing this kind of structure being duplicated elsewhere yes there. Are you know there are things that can be done. I could point to you as well. The inuit have a suicide prevention plan. It's five year. I believe it's thirty five million dollar plan. It's community based. It is based through language. It's based through culture. That is the way forward culturally based prevention programs that is how we need to go forward forward in so many ways and i'm going to point to as well to northern ontario <hes> national be asking nations health transformation agenda which is getting the funding back from the federal government placing it in the hands of communities so they can come up with their own healthcare plans. They can come up with what they want to do with the money in all the nan communities are or most of them. There are hardly any doctors partly any how can this be which it just leads to this question from a listener named brunette not it's actually a two part question but i'll we'll do it one part at a time one question at a time and she writes thank you for these profoundly moving sobering and motivating lectures exclamation point. I now have two questions question one. How can the indigenous community become become vibrant self-sustaining nations if the land and resources continued to be mostly held by the federal or provincial government or private corporate interests gets back to the nation to nation agreements. It gets back to govern sharing. It gets back to actually doing the right thing and sharing development first nations communities want want to participate in the economy. They want to do so in responsible sustainable way. That's good for them. That's good for their families. They're not opposed to making the money. They're not opposed to living the good life like everyone else's. It's not either or right exactly exactly and that's what also too that's what people see see. The second question from bruno to is this. What is the quote path forward for a fair share and beyond the flawed present quote comprehensive treaty rights is negotiations start again to me. Path forward means indigenous led it means not something that's fed from the federal government. It has to be on indigenous timelines done by indigenous people back now to the students though in thunder bay you may recall this question it came on very sensitive issue one <hes> that you've read about extensively and i knows near and dear to your heart and that is suicide among indigenous youth my name's laya project from saint ignatius high school and i'm in ms morgan's class and my question is as teenagers what is are ruled helped with these high suicide rates. Thanks for that and i'm going to sort of localize it a little bit too and i'm gonna talk about your communities and kids at you know and <hes>. I think that it's important to listen. You know sometimes when you guys probably all have friends <hes> that joke maybe sometimes about taking their life right say all dream. I'm just gonna go when i'm just gonna do this. <hes> listen to that because oftentimes those jokes aren't really jobs and people say i'm just kidding just kidding and then what will happen. It's b. It's important to be conscious of people that joke about taking their life that maybe that person needs needs some help. Maybe you should tell somebody you should urge that person to to <hes> to go see a doctor to <hes> to tell somebody else as well so it's important. You don't carry that alone by yourself if you're talking to somebody but it's really really important that you listen. That's the that's the main thing and that just go. Oh just for everybody here and with your friends but also to with the kiss up north in indigenous kids that sort of maybe out of your friend group you know <hes> this listening unaccept- dealing with suicide with your peers or friends for anybody but particularly younger people that is an incredibly heavy heavy burden to carry around with you. <hes> i'm thinking about any weight community thinking about our first nations communities in northern ontario and throw this country that have been dealing with this suicide epidemic amongst our youth and it shouldn't be a normal word used every day and accepted in our communities suicide taking your life. It's almost being <unk> seen as something. That's accepted as normal because it happens so often so frequently. That's why we have to try and do everything we can to look at at the root causes of y were here in the first place and move forward change things. We need to bring it out out in the open and needs to see light of day. The final stop on the tour was toronto which was a grand night in my recollection. I've got several highlights one of them. That is immediately on my mental. View-finder was annesley's simpson and her haunting acappella performance what comes into your mental viewfinder of your own when when you think of that night in toronto i think about the all nations drum i think about the power of the drum and how oh before we took the stage i went out and i met the kids who are part of the all nations drum and <hes> they are all from all over the place you know from all first nations all over the country and they live here and tucker rondo. They live here in toronto. We stood in the little long dressing room at the back and i asked for the kids the all nations dramas to come with me and we stood in this amazing all belong of circle and sam my elder her he was there and we all smudged we held hands and we smudged and we talked about where we were all from and we spoke about how we were going out there to do this together and that was power be mentioned that word power i can remember that drum filling up the hall. Just it was talking about a sense of occasion drama but also a kind of spectacle that you you wanna see more you re. It's a place where you want to be. It's not homework. The drum is the sound of a beating heart. A human heart it a circular. It keeps going. That's that's what you hear. That's the power that you feed off of that. Everyone did and kerner hall and in corner hall the toronto venue. There was a question a very big question question about a very big issue and that is what is to be done about mainstream canada and indigenous relations. I have a feeling that everybody who bought a ticket ticket to hear you today where he convinced of what needs to be done. So what can we do and not all of us are teachers. There's a lot of us are struggling but this is really important and if we don't do anything nothing will happen. So what can we do other than read. Thank you for that and i have from. I have a many layered response question. See the easy answer. They talked about. I was reading then. It's sort of escalates the reading and educating and the ninety four calls to action. I think all those things you know every person can do and read and figure out on their own and that doesn't cost. I don't think very much much money or anything like that but there are other things that can be done. You know specifically when talking about suicide in communities in the northern within communities this is something that i talked about with so many people in communities as i went from place to place to place from coast to coast to coast they you said to me you know. Wouldn't it be great. If there was a safe house a place where kids could go and so when things are getting rough you know at home or at night and they don't want to be there they could go to that safe house and they could be there overnight. Surely that can't cost that much. Can't we do do that.

The man's quintal of first degree murder is not changed. The high court said evidence about Cindy Gladue sexual history was not handled properly during the two thousand fifteen trial in a written statement. One of the judges said the criminal Justice system holds out a promise to all Canadians. Everyone is equally entitled to the laws full protection and to be treated with dignity, humanity and respect. And Cindy, glad who status as an indigenous woman who performed sex work did not change the fact that her life mattered in the original trial. The jury heard repeatedly that God, dude was a prostitute and the native Sheila. North is a former grand chief for northern Manitoba. It's worth looking to see other cases and see where stakes are made, especially when it comes to it was almost complete disregard of who she was just because she was an businesswoman. Adopt it turned out the way it did. And how many more cases are we talking about cross Canada that it ended up this way?
