The treatment of Jody Wilson-Raybould highlights Canada’s problem with Indigenous women

Why doesn’t Canada think of Indigenous women as valuable? As an Indigenous woman, it’s a question I’ve asked my entire adult life, but it feels especially pertinent in light of recent events. Last month’s release of a 115-page report on the death of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine, as well as Jody Wilson-Raybould’s expulsion from the Liberal caucus this week, haunt Indigenous women in this country, pointing out that there are seemingly endless ways to be viewed as a problem when you’re an Indigenous woman, but very few ways to be viewed as a person of worth.

Justin Trudeau has had his liberal image badly tarnished from his involvement to the SNC-Lavalin corruption and bribery scandal. SNC-Lavalin in a big part of Canada's deep state, with mining, engineering, and oil exploration contracts all over the world (i.e. it is Canada's "Halliburton").

Canada's mining interests are salivating over getting ahold of Venezuela's gold mining and other mineral riches. Canada has shown its true imperial character by leading the LIMA group in the illegal economic sanctions and regime change plot against the internationally recognized government of Venezuela. SNC-Lavalin can be expected to be behind it as well as other mining and oil interests.

Canadian mining companies have been destroying the environment all over Latin America, as well as in Canada, for decades. The drive the poor off of their land, and hire goons to murder landless indigenous who protest against their traditional lands being stolen. Canadian law prevents lawsuits against Canadian mining companies, which is one reason that 60% of the world's mining companies are headquartered in Canada.

Jody Wilson-Raybould was Canada's attorney general. As in the US it is supposed to be independent. Yet, Justin Trudeau, the PM of Canada tried to pressure here into dropping the SNC-Lavalin corruption case. When she wouldn't he demoted her, and she resigned and blew the whistle.

I see you've got the link you were trying for. (Hopefully you didn't pay them for it.) Surprisingly, the G&M got it right here. Knock me over with a feather. :)

Thanks, No I did not pay, G&M seems to let people through the paywall on this article. I wonder what their policy is. You can get past a lot of paywalls by using incognito page.

I was wondering about that. I haven't seen a paywall going to The G&M. Sounds more like a regional block you may have run into the first time. Perhaps you were using a VPN the last time?
