Weytk (Hello) to everyone; as you can see that we are launching a post card campaign to get the public to send them to Prime Minister Harper for two things;
1. for Canada as the last country in the World to accept the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People and a
2. Public Inquiry into the Murdered and Missing Women.

I ask that if you are Chief, Hereditary Leader, Tribal Leader, or activist or just a person who wants to get involved that you encourage your people to send the post cards in to the Prime Minister and distribute them through your networks. We need to show Canada that we as Indigenous people will not be forgotten, like they have forgotten about our women who have been murdered and are missing.

I ask the Canadian Public to get involved and show that Canada is truly a leader of Human Rights in the world by forcing your Leader to do what is right and agree to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People as minimum standards for our international human rights; so that when you travel throughout the world you can display the Canada flag with pride. The official policy of denial by Canada has to be push aside for the Rule of Law to prevail which is enshrined in Section 35 of Canada’s constitution – your constitution. You witnessed with the world at the opening ceremony of Vancouver 2010 that we do exist as an Indigenous people, with a language, culture and laws. We need you to force your leaders to do what is right for us and Canada. Get involved send in the post card, email Harper, distribute this message throughout your networks.

The Olympics are coming to an end with the para-Olympics to begin 10 days later. We need to shift our focus to Poverty & Children and Title & Rights. There are more children in the care of the state (27,000 nationally) then when the Residential Schools operated at their height. The Prime Minister in the House of Commons on June 11th 2008 he uttered these words: “ We now recognize that, in separating children from their families, we undermined the ability of many to adequately parent their own children and sowed the seeds for generations to follow, and we apologize for having done this.” The Prime Ministers words in the hallowed space of the democracy are insincere as Canada’s refusal to sign the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People is a clear indicator that our Human rights are not recognized in Canada.
