You might have heard that KAIROS had its federal funding eliminated by the Harper Cons. This is one active and passionate group that works tirelessly as a voice of conscience and respect for human rights. Ed Bianchi is the guy working in the area of Indigenous rights. I first met him when we’d pass each other at the CBC’s Journalism Training Centre.
Anyway, he sent out a reminder that the UN is not impressed – nope, not at all – with the way some countries (come on down, Canada) have treated Indigenous peoples within their respective borders. Ach, shame.
We need to hear more from people like Ed, and less from Stephen and his gang of idiots. I’m just saying… Perogies anyone?
