Mohawk Nation News: The Daisy Gang and Ambulance Chasers

THE “DAISY CHAIN GANG"
AMBULANCE CHASERS, GOVERNMENTS AND SELL-OUT “INDIANS’ MEET TO DESCONSTRUCT THE “DUTY TO CONSULT” THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE

Mar. 16, 2008. If there’s one thing the Supreme Court of Canada ever got right, it’s recognizing that our Indigenous point of view has to be taken into account. They found that the old colonial habit of running over our land, stealing and destroying everything in sight as if we did not exist has to stop. They didn’t go so far as to uphold our rights under international law to our own laws and sovereignty, to uphold our right to our consent to any use of our resources.
This has not been a blessing for us. We are now overrun by lawyers and ambulance chasers. These guys are looking for ways to ensure our demise.
The bureaucrats, politicians and corporations are trying to fill their ambulances with maimed, brainless, suffering Indigenous people if they can find them. Then they hire “scumbag shysters” to chase and run them off the road. No “Indians” around to talk to. It’s a “hit and run”! Then they hold meetings on how to avoid, minimize and “deconstruct” the “duty to consult”.
On February 13 and 14, 2007 a conference on “Aboriginal Law and Consultation” was held at the fancy Sutton Place Hotel in Toronto. The cost was from $1,902.70 to $3,952.10 per person. How many economically oppressed indigenous people can afford to go there? That is the first violation of the duty to consult.Kahentinetha Horn
