“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

WUN FEATHER – If you were to ask Justin Trudeau how any of the money, he’s borrowed from taxpayers was spent, he wouldn’t be able to answer

When it comes to Justin Trudeau and his desire to land a seat on the UN Security Council, he went about it all wrong.

We all need to remember that Justin has never done anything of significance in his life. The only reason he holds the highest political position in the land is because his daddy was a Prime Minister of sorts. Justin grew up as a spoiled rich kid, who thinks that throwing money around is the way to influence people and buy friendships.

His answer to every situation is to bring out the check-book that actually belongs to the hard-working Canadian taxpayers, and he fills in a dollar amount and sends it away. That is typical of the social justice warriors and virtue-signalers of the day.

As much as I think that the UN is a group of busy body people -- who think that they can dive into every countries business and make the world all warm and fuzzy -- I think, (or hope), they see through Trudeau.

They see him sending checks everywhere, but those of us with experience, have grown to know that cash money or checks written to organizations never solves anything. By example, his answer to Indigenous fresh water problems was to send money to the nations.

Where did that money go, and how was it spent?

... we don't know.

If you were to ask Justin Trudeau how any of the money, he’s borrowed from taxpayers was spent, he wouldn’t be able to answer... and the UN is

smart enough to know that too. He went about it the wrong way entirely.

What countries and people need isn't money.

They need help ... physical labor ... infrastructure ... fresh drinking water ... freedom and security ... along with education and training. They need housing ... energy sources ... along with healthcare and rehabilitation.

Waving bundles of cash around never improves any of the above items. Most of us know that if you send cash to fix any of these problems (and this is a small and incomplete list), the majority of the cash goes into administrative services and the pockets of the decision makers ... by the time the cash travels past the leadership, there isn't any left.

Let's just take the First Nations fresh water situation as an example.

Instead of sending our nations a wheelbarrow full of money, take the time to visit the community. Have a look at what needs to be done and create an action plan for each community.   Determine the scope of work that needs to be done, and source goods and service providers from each community if possible.

Training and employing community members must always be a focus ... then use community members to build the infrastructure required to provide themselves with fresh water. As you train the individuals to do the work, you also provide ongoing routine maintenance training at the same time, so that community members will always be involved in the day to day activities.

Because community members were involved in the entire process, they have a greater understanding of how it works, and how to keep it operational.

This is just one example, but there is significantly more value in this approach than mailing the Chief a check. Most nations are dead broke, and in serious need of housing -- any money they get their hands on goes towards house repairs, or to support their elders and members in need. The Chiefs make sure that the health centers and public works have enough funds to stay afloat.

I know many Chiefs that are frustrated with the current system. The UN is smart enough to know this as well.

Trudeau brags to the leaders of the countries about how many checks he wrote, but the truth is that none of the money Canadian taxpayers borrowed -- and gave to other countries -- has made any difference in their lives.

What a huge waste of our money.

The UN made the right decision -- Trudeau did absolutely nothing to deserve that seat he so desperately tried to buy with our money.



About Wun Feather ... I am one of the last of my generation to have actually attended residential and Indian day schools. I have lived on and off reserve, and have seen the benefits and the hardships of my people in both situations.

My parents taught me that any time I fell down physically, or emotionally, I just needed to pick myself up, shake myself off, and continue in a forward direction. So, I cannot claim that I did it on my own; I had great Elders.

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by Rates.ca, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
