Report: Settle land claims

Posted: June 1, 2007 in Appeasement & Cowardice, Corruption, Dudley George, Ipperwash, IpperWashGate, Land claims, Natives, OPP, Propaganda

Former Ontario Premier Mike Harris misled the provincial legislature when he denied telling a high-level meeting of police and government officials that “I want the fucking Indians out of the park” hours before the massive confrontation late at night on Sept. 6, 1995, when Native activist Anthony (Dudley) George was shot dead by an OPP sniper, a provincial inquiry has found.

But Harris did not interfere or give inappropriate directions to the police during the massive police operation, Mr. Justice Sidney Linden ruled in his report.

He praised the OPP for improving communications with First Nations people since 1995, but also slammed the force for never correcting the false press releases it issued on Ipperwash that (Edit: ALLEGEDLY) incorrectly stated that Natives fired at police.

Among other recommendations;

– “The ministry of community safety and correctional services should issue a directive to all police services in Ontario, including the OPP, requiring police officers to report incidents of racism or other culturally insensitive behaviour by other officers to their superiors.”

– “The provincial government should establish a permanent, independent, and impartial agency to facilitate and oversee the settling of land and treaty claims in
Ontario.”

– “The provincial government should work with First Nations and Aboriginal organizations to develop policies that acknowledge the uniqueness of Aboriginal burial and heritage sites, ensure that First Nations are aware of decisions affecting Aboriginal burial and heritage sites, and promote First Nations participation in decision-making.”

(Edit: Let’s quit sugar coating this nonsnese and call it what it is. The recommendation goes as follows: APPEASEMENT APPEASEMENT APPEASEMENT APPEASEMENT)
