Video Shows RCMP Killing Of Dog That Was Clearly Not A Threat

What a disgrace the RCMP has become. This is what has become of the so called police protection? I know who I won’t be calling any time soon if I feel a need of protecting, for I love my dog!!! This is animal cruelty, and charges need to be laid against these officers. More of these officers should be doing time for cruelty against people and animals for their actions. They are getting out of hand and ALL CANADIANS need to stand together to stop their hand of terror upon us all. They say serial killers start on animals after all.

DogHandler The Prince Albert RCMP Service Dog Unit

By Red Power Media, Staff, Updated, 08/18/2015

A Facebook video surfaced today, that shows the Royal Mounted Canadian Police (RCMP) dragging a Native man out of a home when one of the officers walks up to a black dog wagging its tail in the grass and shoots it dead.

The RCMP claimed the dog, Duke, had attacked one of their dogs.

But the video, recorded by a screaming distraught woman, shows that did not happen in the moments before the dog was shot.

The video does not capture the scene in its entirety, however, in the beginning, you can hear the RCMP dog handler instructing another officer to “get a shotgun and take this dog down.”

Duke was nowhere close to the group of officers dragging the almost naked man ―named Adam Cote― out of the house and the dog may have already been injured.

Nevertheless…

McCain Chased Off Reservation By Pissed-Off Navajo Activists (VIDEO)

This was wonderful. He walks in expecting hand shakes and photo opps and much love. Even in the wake of Keystone, Oak flats, and a gold mine spill on the governments watch, deemed to be a ‘ mistake ‘ . He deserved to be run out on a rail with feathers and tar as do many of the government officials. But they ask for trust and understanding when they give none. This was great. Love it.

In a stunning action that was long overdue, a group of native Navajo Americans chased Senator John McCain out of the Navajo Nation capital of Window Rock — making it perfectly clear he was unwelcome in the first place.

McCain was visiting the Nation in commemoration of Navajo Code Talker’s day, and perhaps for a moment thought he would get by listening to polite pleas from Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and Vice-President Jonathan Nez to back a Congressional appropriation to fund the construction of a Navajo Code Talkers Museum. According to a report from Native News Online.Net, however, the Nation’s leaders chose the moment to focus on the EPA tragedy unfolding via the Gold King Mine spill into the Animas and San Juan Rivers.

Vice President Nez said the Navajo people naturally have a distrust of the government and noted the agency never formally apologized to…

Native Americans Most Likely Victims Of Deadly Police Force

I hope that one day people will come to realize the importance of how much “Red lives Matter”!!! The Idle no more movement was a good start but society has never seen the First Nations as equals, no matter what. That day MUST come. For the Indigenous Peoples of the world cannot be denied forever as we are every place in every nation on the planet.

The high-profile shooting of an unarmed teen in Ferguson, Missouri last year focused international attention on police using deadly force against African Americans.

But another minority group in the U.S. — Native Americans — also claims they are frequently subjected to excessive force by police, and recent incidents and protests are drawing attention to their cause.

Three Native Americans are reported to have died during arrest or confinement last month.

One of them was Denver resident Paul Castaway, a 35-year-old Lakota Indian with a history of mental illness and alcohol abuse.

“He recently lost his job and he was devastated,” said his mother, Lynn Eagle Feather.  On July 12, he returned home from an outing in a state of high…

Global News

Seven demonstrators from across Canada stopped in Saskatoon Wednesday as part of their cross-country walk. The group is walking from Winnipeg to Prince Rupert, B.C. as part of an effort to raise awareness of murdered and missing aboriginal women.

The demonstrators were joined in Saskatoon by Saskatchewan Senator Lillian Dyck, who called on the federal government to recognize the plight of Canada’s aboriginal women.

“The federal government is doing nothing, they could care less. This should be an election issue. This has to stop, we have to stop harming our aboriginal women,” Dyck said.

Hearing Into Allegations That CSIS Spied On Pipeline Opponents Set To Begin

It is a sad state of affairs when the people of this nation cannot protest against something they deem unsafe to their health or welfare without being illegally investigated by a government agency. When the fossil fuel industry has become so powerful and their allies in the government have become so close that the agencies themselves, become the tools for the industry itself against the people of the country. This is not what you expect in Canada but some other nation.

A hearing into allegations the Canadian Security Intelligence Service spied on people opposed to the Northern Gateway pipeline project will begin Wednesday in downtown Vancouver – and two of the people who will testify say the allegations have had a chilling effect on environmental advocates.

The BC Civil Liberties Association filed a complaint with the Security Intelligence Review Committee, which oversees CSIS, in February of last year. The civil liberties association alleged that CSIS spied on community groups and First Nations opposed to the pipeline, and that CSIS then shared at least some of that information with the National Energy Board and the oil industry.

Josh Paterson, the civil liberties association’s executive director, in an interview Tuesday said it is illegal for CSIS to gather…

Grace Islet Home On Sacred Aboriginal Cemetery To Be Demolished

It’s a fine day, when finally ancestors may have a resting place decided in their favour over money, as it should be. I’m sure this man would not take kindly to others building on top of his family members either.

Cultural workers will be at the site to ensure that 16 cairns are not disturbed

Crews will soon deconstruct a partially built home on a sacred burial site off Salt Spring Island, B.C., after a multimillion-dollar deal with the landowner.

Construction on a Grace Islet house started last fall after the landowner got the necessary permits, but First Nations raised concerns about the historical significance of the area.

Work stopped in December, and the land was transferred to the Nature Conservancy of Canada after the B.C. government paid the landowner $5.45 million.

Linda Hannah, the nature conservancy’s regional vice-president, said Monday that the house was at the framing stage when the order to stop work was issued.

Oath Keepers: Who are white militia at Ferguson protests and why are they allowed to carry guns?

A group of white men armed with assault rifles have been filmed “patrolling” the streets of Ferguson during a fourth night of protests marking the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death.

Dozens of demonstrators had been arrested for offences including obstructing police, throwing bottles and “obstructing the normal use of the entrances” to a court but the gun-wielding men were not detained, sparking accusations of hypocrisy.

At least three members of the “Oath Keepers” group were seen on the streets of the St Louis suburb overnight.
