Our last federal election (2015) had the highest voter turnout since 1993. Overall, Canadians have not been participating in running our country and now, 24 years later, we are facing the severe consequences of our apathy. 😩 . . . .  Feeling overwhelmed? New to political activism? Don't worry because there are thankfully a lot of amazing Indigenous leaders and Canadians out there fighting on our behalf.

Right now in Canada, we have an NDP Premier implementing an embargo against Canadian winemakers in support of keeping her province's economy afloat through the expansion of a Houston based pipeline company. I can't even believe how idiotic we look. 🤯😡 Canada, I think its time for a history lesson because we need to realize that we have given away our resources and with it our ability to build a healthy and safe future. 💸💸💸 . . . . "In 1973, world oil prices quadrupled due to the Arab oil embargo following the Yom Kippur War. The province of Alberta had substantial oil reserves, whose extraction had long been controlled by American corporations. The government of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and the opposition New Democratic Party felt that these corporations geared most of their production to the American market, and as a result, little of the benefit of rising oil prices went to Canadians. The bill to create a publicly run oil company was introduced by the New Democratic Party in 1973. Trudeau's Liberals were then in a minority government and dependent upon the support of the NDP to stay in power. The idea also fit with the growing movement toward economic nationalism within the Liberals. The Liberals and NDP passed the bill over the opposition of the Progressive Conservative Party led by Robert Stanfield." As a result of this bill Petro-Canada was founded as a Crown Corporation in 1975 by an act of Parliament. "Buy Petro-Canada and pump your money back into Canada"; "Petro-Canada: It's Ours"; "Canada First" . . . . . .

B.C. First Nations groups are hoping to throw another wrench in Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline by amassing Indigenous people and their supporters on Burnaby Mountain to further delay the project.  umen restriction Members of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation are calling for a mass demonstration on Burnaby Mountain in March. They expect hundreds of Indigenous people and their supporters to join from across Canada. "I'll do whatever it takes to keep this beautiful British Columbia," said Cedar George, a member of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation. His community directly faces Burnaby, one of the cities that Trans Mountain's pipeline expansion will go through.  He says a spill could negatively impact his people's traditional diet and way of life and while the provincial government has already delayed the project, he wants to be sure it doesn't go ahead at all.  In a statement, Trans Mountain told the CBC: "We support the right to peacefully and lawfully express opinions and views about our Project, and we understand that not everyone supports the expansion." It added "we're confident we can build and operate this Project in a way that respects the values and priorities of Canadians and in respect of the environment." For George though, it's not a matter of if a spill happens, but when. "Ninety per cent of our diet came from that water. We are being stewards of the land and when we see an immediate threat to the water, it's time for us to stand up and delay this project," George said.

Just days after the House passed its version of the federal tax law slashing corporate tax rates, House Speaker Paul Ryan collected nearly $500,000 in campaign contributions from billionaire energy mogul Charles Koch and his wife, according to a recent campaign donor report.  Koch and his brother David spent millions of dollars to get the tax law passed and are spending millions more in a public relations campaign in an attempt to boost support for the law, The Wall Street Journal reported.  Koch Industries, one of the largest private corporations in the nation, operates refineries and manufactures a variety of products. The new tax law — which slices corporate tax rates from 35 percent to 21 percent, slashes estate taxes and includes a special deduction for oil and gas investors — is expected to save the Koch brothers and their businesses billions of dollars in taxes.  Just 13 days after the tax law was passed, Charles Koch and his wife, Elizabeth, donated nearly $500,000 to Ryan’s joint fundraising committee, according to a campaign finance report filed Thursday.  Five other donors, including billionaire businessmen Jeffery Hildebrand and William Parfet, each contributed $100,000 in the last quarter of 2017, according to the records. “It looks like House Speaker Ryan is quickly being rewarded for passing this legislation that overwhelmingly benefits the Kochs and billionaires like them,” Adam Smith, spokesman for campaign finance reform nonprofit Every Voice, told the International Business Times, which first reported the Koch contributions.

This is really happening. Because taking things that DO NOT belong to you, can no longer be ignored. That is Native Land. And we will fight you for it. Peacefully. In prayer. And with lawyers. . . . .Share Share Share. Please keep the social media love and movement alive. Letting the Gov take advantage of our tribes- has gone on long enough. . . . .#fucktrump #notmypresident #divest #peopleoverprofits #mniwiconi #uncimaka #protectthesacred #protect #motherearth #namastaywild #nativepride #trumped #youcantownearth #notyourland #wecannotdrinkoil #repost @the_pale_blue #prayersup #makeastand #standingrock #ute #navajo #lakota #dakota #dine #passamaquoddy #nokxl #peopleoverpipelines #nodapl #waterprotectors #notprotestors

✨Smelled camp smoke and sage on the winds today. 🌬Reminded me of the day we met the Bestest little RezBeast in alllll the lands🦊. #mniwiconi #mniwiconipuppy #standingrockpup #rezdog #rezdogsofinstagram #nodapl #nokxl #wecannotdrinkoil #peopleoverprofits #kxliscurrentlyleaking #waterislife #uncimaka #divest #resilience #sacred #protectthesacred #indigenous #nativepride #passamaquoddy #lakota #istandwithstandingrock
This time last year I was with @jardana at Standing Rock, ND with water protectors. The native peoples there reminded us of the precious life-giving necessity of water and rivers. They taught us about the sacredness of prayer and connection to our planet. All by their actions and leadership to protect our groundwater from oil. And now, a year later, we see more and more devastating evidence of how right they are about these horrific pipelines, as they one by one leak oil into the ground and water systems. #cometotheriver #wecannotdrinkoil #standingrock #waterprotectors
I have a hard time with holidays. Not that I don’t like to celebrate or be with family. Usually I’m celebrating, we are probably just calling it different names. But mostly, right now, It is because Thanksgiving, (like Valentines) has found its place based on massacres, traumatic experiences, and mayhem. I love my family, love spending time with them. I did not love seeing my relatives last thanksgiving- being attacked with dogs, mace, concussion grenades, water cannons and more ‘non lethal weaponry’ in freezing temps, while protecting their sacred land, their sacred waterways in NorthDak. It was wrong, illegal, and a serious breech of EVERYTHING Americans are ‘supposed’ to stand for. It’s really hard for me to celebrate one side of a family that gives no recollection to what is happening to the other Side. -I choose not, to be blind. To be aware, of the things around me- affecting and indirectly affecting me. . . . .current feels: this fucking Holiday is affecting me. And I don’t want to celebrate. ......::::: 😣 Can’t sleep. Supposed to working on business number three. Really just wish there was some camp smoke, coffee, laughter and drums outside. . . . . No such luck. Just wind, silence and the occasional vehicle. I miss the drums the most. Camp was different ....some nights I wonder how we all make it, back here. . . . ......don’t care much for civilized living. Never have . . . .. #namastaywild 😞 #repost #stevenpauljudd 🙏🏽 #passamaquoddy #nativepride #scotchndn #twosides #zen #iliketospendthanksgivingalone #help #sendfrybread #missingtheotherhomes #uncimaka #mniwiconi #reflections #nostalgia #meditation #sevengenerations #societyisforthebirds #ocetisakowin #standingrock #knowhistory #columbuswasaterrorist #fuckptsd #nodapl #nokxl #peopleoverprofits #wecannotdrinkoil #kxliscurrentlyleaking 210000 gallons and counting.... 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
😣Remember: we CAN NOT drink OIL. 💧💦💧💦💧💦💧💦💧💦 -this whole week I’ve gotten hints of camp.. Drums. Smoke scents. Sage. The smell of grams fry bread. Moments of silence, and Whispers on the wind- as well as the need for fire cider, as the weather comes back to remind us, we moved forward. Not back.  And came a year so far...... we got this.✊🏽Keep up the good fight. -sending prayers to the land and relatives 🔮#protectorsNOTprotestors #waterprotectors #uncimaka #protectourgrandmother #ocetisakowin #ocetioyate  #seventhgeneration #blacksnakekilla #standingrock #nodapl #nokxl #peopleoverprofits #wecannotdrinkoil #mniwiconi #waterislife #wearemadeofwater #istandwithstandingrock #oilspills #leakingpipelines #repost @lilnativeboy
