Given months of civil unrest and multiple issues relating to the safety of First Nations people across the country, I will be writing to Prime Minister Trudeau to express that we have lost confidence in Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commissioner Brenda Lucki. 1/3

iPhone : We must all stand tall for #MikmaqRights today- but this is my modest call for settlers to dig in for the long haul when it comes to Peace, Friendship and Treaty Lobsters 🦞

iPhone : Indigenous fisheries take priority over non-Indigenous fisheries - especially commercial fisheries. Period. End of story. That's all she wrote.

Thank you for attending my TED talk.

Twitter Web App : I am constantly updating this document with new actions, donations, and resources. Send your ideas! Let's keep the pressure on!

iPhone : There’s no nation of commercial fishers, and if there is, they didn’t sign any Treaties with the Mi’kmaq.

iPhone : It's fucking disgusting the way white supremacists use environmentalist arguments against Indigenous people exercising their treaty rights or practicing their culture. As if the Western extraction, colonialism & capitalism they worship aren't what made environmentalism necessary.
