Feathers Versus Guns: The Throne Speech and Canada's War With Mi'kmaw Nation
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'kmawarein a battle of drums and feathers versus tanks and assault rifles -- not the rosy picture painted by Canada to the international community.
