    Give SOME land back to FNP! Reserve is the CAUSE of Government dependency!

    And there is also this $21,000 housing allowance he collects though he lives in Gatineau, by declaring his father’s address in Maniwaki as his. (Senator Duffy does it too.)

  3. Idle No More: Talking Transparency Here | Conservatives and Canada's 41st Parliament | Scoop.it Says:

    […] Is Senator Brazeau "ignoring the log" in his own eye as he attacks Chief Spence about Attawapiskat's finances? Is there something he isn't telling us that we don't already know?  […]

  4. Elyse Bruce Says:

    “[quote] OTTAWATwo members of Stephen Harper’s Conservative caucus — an elected MP and a senator — publicly disparaged the Idle No More movement and Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence at a fundraising dinner for a provincial candidate Tuesday [end quote].”

    The senator in the news story was Senator Patrick Brazeau.

    In yesterday’s edition of the Ottawa Citizen, the following article was published.

    “[quote] Chief Gilbert Whiteduck of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, near Maniwaki, Que., said he will no longer remain silent as Brazeau unleashes a “parody of ridicule … against all First Nation citizens,” most recently against Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and the Idle No More movement [end quote].”

    Being a non-native this is my view on things. Brazeau is just a street Indian with a sense of unearned worth towards himself, and the culture he comes from, if he still even know’s what that is.

    He is the type of person that we don’t need fueling discrimination in our society, native or non-native. He should be a poster boy to the native people of this beautifull nation, of how not to remember your heritage, and the perfect image of a truly assimilated steet indian, which most native’s and non-native’s now recognise as the problem, and not the solution to a long standing discrimination in our diverse cultural society we live in in the present day.
    Keep up the fight, for when the rights of the natives are squashed, where do they go next with the geoncide that has been going on since the first white man put their foot on North American soil. I for one just wish for harmony and peace within our own country, and to do that we have to be one country united, for we are all Canadians here, some have just been here longer is all….

    Another story about Patrick Brazeau surfaced in the news yesterday (6 February 2013) that stated he “used his former father-in-law’s address in a First Nations community when he claimed an aboriginal income tax exemption from 2004 to 2008.”

    This period of time covers some of the same time he was vice-chief (2005) and chief (2006 – 2008) of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP).

    And yet another story about Patrick Brazeau survaced in the news today (7 February 2013). The article states that Lorraine Rochon says that the Senate caucus was notified that Senator Brazeau has been removed from the Conservative caucus. The story also states that Senator Brazeau is “currently being held in a Gatineau jail over a domestic violence issue.”
