Protesters had no other option – Belleville Intelligencer

Protesters had no other option

I am writing after hearing the news of the sentencing of the protesters at Robertsville, near Sharbot Lake, for contempt of court after they went against a court injunction. All involved understood that contempt of court was a serious offence but from what I have been reading on the government websites and the website of Frontenac Ventures Corporation (FVC) themselves, this was a situation where the people only had one course of action and that was to protest.

Kevin Libin

For the last five weeks, the National Post’s Rethinking the Reserve focused on finding solutions to the aboriginal challenges facing Canada. One of the major themes of the series was the restrictions many First Nations face when it comes to developing their economies, an essential step in moving away from dependence on government support. Writer Kevin Libin talked with Chuck Strahl, who has been Indian Affairs Minister for six months now, about the series, the solutions and what Canada’s government can do to move First Nations toward better economic integration. The following is an edited transcript of their discussion.

Yellowbird red hot; Native country singer has conquered severe stuttering

It’s enough to knock your Stetson off.

Cree cowboy singer Shane Yellowbird is riding high on an astounding wave of popularity, logging a whopping 20 award nominations in the past 18 months for his straight-up country sound. A couple of weeks ago, he landed his first Juno nod. And the 28-year-old is still staggering under a pile of hardware he collected last fall at the Canadian Country Music Awards, the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards and the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards. The tally: eight trophies in about three months.

Protesters’ trial a travesty of law and moral responsibility

I know too little about First Nations’ roles in this country historically and currently, but I do know that First Nations principles, historically and culturally, are based on respect for the land, which translates into environmentalism. I know a little about residential schools-based genocide and related forms of genocide as well. But I think I learned all one really needs to know last week at the Frontenac County Court House, where Justice Douglas Cunningham concluded that Robert Lovelace and Paula Sherman, leaders of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation, should be sentenced to six months in prison and fined more than $35,000 for trying to protect their (and our) land from environmental disaster.
