Residential School Comparison Embarrassing – The Winnipeg Sun

Residential School Comparison Embarrassing

Last Updated: March 1, 2010

For somebody so concerned about preaching, Nahanni Fontaine sure does a lot of it.

Fontaine, the longtime spokeswoman on justice issues for the Southern Chiefs Organization, was preaching to city council last Wednesday, comparing Youth for Christ’s proposed youth centre in the city’s skid row to that of residential schools. No, really — she actually said that.

You are in Candahar
It’s a bar, an art exhibit, the star of the other Olympiad in Vancouver

by Anne Kingston on Thursday, February 25, 2010

As millions tuned in to watch Canada’s founding First Nation tribes being celebrated with spectacular production values in the Olympic opening ceremonies at B.C. Place, another audience was participating in a more gritty and audacious Aboriginal spectacle just blocks away at the far less grand Playwrights Theatre Centre on Granville Island. There, more than a hundred thronged to the Candahar Bar when doors opened at 7 p.m., eager to check out the opening night of one of the most buzzed-about art installations on Vancouver’s jam-packed 2010 Cultural Olympiad calendar: a pop-up replica of a Belfast public house that’s part performance space, part ongoing social experiment.

The sky is not falling

By: Editorial
25/02/2010

It was clear from Wednesday’s council meeting that many aboriginal groups and social agencies feel the Christian religion is not fit — morally, culturally or spiritually — to provide leadership or guidance to native children. It’s also evident that the process surrounding a controversial funding request by Youth for Christ is deeply resented by community organizations that felt they did not get an equal shot.

Kevin Libin: Too little, too late for the Tories to forgive First Nations U – National Post (blog)

Kevin Libin: Too little, too late for the Tories to forgive First Nations U

Posted: February 24, 2010

Kevin Libin, aboriginal policy, Conservative party, First Nations

When the First Nations University of Canada opened its $30 million, architecturally celebrated doors seven years ago, the political world outside was a very different one.

In its home province of Saskatchewan, Lorne Calvert’s NDP was on the cusp of winning its fourth majority. Paul Martin, with his soft spot for funding aboriginal improvement initiatives, was about to be anointed prime minister. Canada’s first aboriginal-focused university was born with nothing but the best of friends in high places.
