Why the Natives have Won? - Aug. 26, 2006
|It is sad to post this story but it is also so True.
The Natives will win the battle in Caledonia and Caledonia will become the next 16 years of Ipperwash for two main reasons.
1) Most people in Ontario and in Canada don't give a damn about Caledonia. For all the talk about how great Canadians are you don't find it acted on regarding Caledonia.
The number of our friends and family who cannot understand why we would waste our time to help out Caledonia tells the whole story. For most people they don't care because it doesn't affect their pocket book. Do they care about law & order - yes, but not if it means getting off the couch and missing their flavourite show?
Do they care about a 92 year old WWII vet's home being attacked - sure if you ask them directly, but this is soon forgotten a moment later?
Where is the great outcry by the people of Ontario and Canada about women & children living in fear and in direct danger to their lives? By and large you won't find it in Ontario or Canada.
McGuinty, Harper and the Natives know this very well. Does anyone believe that if McGuinty thought the average Ontarian would care, that he would be supporting the terrorist activities of the Natives? McGunity knows full well that when it comes right down to it the average Canadian doesn't give a damn to help out their neighbour. For all the talk, Canadians fall far short of any standard of concern for other people.
Canadians have no problem supporting people who need medical attention and the many other great causes, but to stand for Truth, Justice and 'Rule of Law'? - sounds too politicial for Canadians to really care.
2) Natives have the financial support of their people. To date the band has given $42,000 to aid in the Native Terrorist activities in Caledonia - money by the way that came from you, the taxpayers. But what have the people of Caledonia or Ontario done to financially help in the cause?
You would think that people who have lost tens of thousands of dollars in home value would be motivated to financially support the Class Action Lawsuit - to date the poor showing by residents even to give $100 each only proves why the Natives will win.
It appears most people care little about right or wrong and more about why they shouldn't give $100 to support a lawsuit that benefits them. To Canadians, who have never had to pay much for their personal freedoms, giving $100 is far to great a price to pay to take a stand. Maybe the Liberals were right, don't give Canadians $100 month because they may spend it on beer and popcorn - well, I think for sure, they're not spending it on supporting their own town or the fellow Canadians.
My wife and I have dedicated 16 hours a day into this site since June 9th. To date we have received about $320 in donations. We thank the people who have supported us both with money and emails.
But the reality is our bills, like yours, must be paid. We have failed to pay our August Mortgage and September is fast approaching. Natives know that their community will support them - both in word and in deeds. Natives ask for financial support and their people respond.
If the people of Caledonia, Ontario and Canada are content to sit and watch TV while your homes are taken, the 'Rule of Law' is destroyed, while Police create Two Tier Justice and our elected Officials refuse to hear our voice then maybe my wife and I truly have wasted our time.
We are at a Crossroads as a people - all equal under the law or not.
We are at a Crossroads personnally - continue the fight or return to our day jobs and pay the bills.
Both of these will be determined by the People of Caledonia, of Ontario and Canada. If no one cares enough to help draw attention to Caledonia and if people will not open their wallets to support the good fight then the Natives have won and your town is next.
When it reaches your town don't expect Canadains to help because you didn't help when Ipperwash and Caledonia cried out to you.
The Choice is yours.
Is there not One Canadian out there that has the Money to support this Fight?
The Natives won't win because their cause is more just.
The Natives won't win because their actions are correct.
The Natives won't win because our politicians are spineless.
The Natives will win because of apathy - Canadians don't care.
