Idle No More: 250 Years Ago Today

The Royal Proclamation of 1763 set clear guidelines with respect to where settlers could set up on Aboriginal territories in North America. It is a seminal documented point in history and after 250 years, one would think the descendants of King George III and the federal and provincial governments in Canada would respect and honor this treaty.

For those of you who insist that the Aboriginal communities across Canada show accept the current situation, does it bother you to know that over the generations, your side of the agreement was never honored?

Wouldn’t you say that the Aboriginal communities across Canada have been generous and patient as they worked to have the Royal Proclamation of 250 years ago respected and honored and enacted?

Food for thought.
