Canada adopted America's model. In both countries, genocide never stopped. It's hidden on reservations plagued by broken promises; extreme poverty and neglect; low life expectancy; epidemic disease levels; high levels of alcoholism, suicide, infant mortality, unemployment, and incarceration; stolen resources; and lost lives in the name of progress - genocide as jurist Raphael Lemkin defined it:


"the destruction of a nation or of an ethnic group" that corresponds to other terms like "tyrannicide, homicide, infanticide, etc." (It) does not necessarily mean the destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings....It is intended....to signify a coordinated plan (to destroy) the essential foundations of the life of national groups" with the intent to eradicate or substantially weaken or harm them.

He did nothing, "then equivocated, and when Father Murphy died in 1998, he died a priest" instead of in prison where caught and convicted lay felons are sent.


Marquette University Professor of Moral Theology Daniel C. Maguire's March 28 consortiumnews.com article headlined "Why Pope Benedict Must Resign," saying:
