I am not an Indian Charles, I am a Native Canadian.

We were here even before your Ancestors. You talk about un-equal rights about Racism, Your ancestors and the English, really gave it to us, you know where.

We were here, even before anybody else found us ??

But after reading your Blog, I thing there's a lot of Indians here, whatever an Indian is.

What is an Indian Charles, maybe I'll go the Human Rights Organization and File a Complaint against you,for calling my people INDIANS

Hi, I am probably someone who could have Indian blood but not sure; my ancesters where living near the natives and some of us have skin that tans easily and I'm sure it was stated throughout the years we are and I certainly do not mind at all.

It has always bothered me throughout the years why they would always be helping the French people (I am French, parents from Grand Falls but born in Saint John). Here the native Indians were much more in need and that never happen and still is not happening as quickly as it should. All people no matter what color, race or religion that have been here for hundreds of years should be helped first. Instead they are shunded and they start trying to bring in new people promising them everything these people have been waiting patiently for.

Why is it that our native Indain people could not of been offered a spot as as an RCMP officer's job like they gave the Indians who wear their turbans. The Native Indians should of been able to wear their feathers with pride. Intead the government took their children from their parents and tried to degrade them and stop them from speaking their language.

Like I said before I'm not native Indian but as a so white, french blood, some Indian but don't know for sure, speak little French but understand more. This does not matter, remember we are talking about all people who have been here for hundreds of years and we need to help them now. Money is needed for the people now and respectable jobs for them first. But instead we cater to wealthy families that government thinks will help us prosper. They never seem to understand the people and never will as long as people are not valued.

Lord fights for no one. He fights for himself only and that is a losing fight too. People have caught on with this phoney. No one trusts him. I do not think Natives put much trust in him. After meeting with him, before he went off, they were not that thrilled with him.

Charles is not only Scottish, he is also Acadian and as we all know his roots go back to the Native people. Maybe he's the Indian!

To 6:06 AM???? Have a Coffee. Do you honestly believe that I would used the word - Indian if it was known as a racial slur? In the past, I always used the words Natives or Aborginals. This all change after I heard a Naive group hold a news conference and called themselves - INDIANS!!! So when you go to the Commission? Please add the people at Saint Mary's also! Merci!

Sammy Paul Kingsclear said...

I heard on the CBC one day an interview with some Acadians state the phrase " We so-called FROGS " Take offence to this statement and Phrase.

So are you saying Charles it's alright to use these Phrases ??

Charles T.J. is not the only native in the Legislature. Do some research there is another one in there.

Charles LeBlanc said...

You again?..ok to so call Sammy Paul Kingsclear. You have never heard the Acadians hold a news conference and call themselves- Frogs!

You know better than that. But I believe you're just someone who wish to get me going but this is the last time I'm going to comment on this issue.

There was a news conference held by a Chief somewhere in New Brunswick and they used the word- We Indians!!!!

That's a fact Jack!!!!

If I have a Natibe who tells me in person to change it to Natives or Aborginals?

I will do the change but until then?

It's Indian!!!!

merci

Can't even get beyond semantics, that's the extent of the conversation in NB. Nobody here is from India, go to the states and you'll hear african americans call themselves 'niggers', however, if a white person does that, then all hell would quite rightfully break lose.

Just have that coffee and switch back to 'native', nobody will mind and then that conversation will be done with.

Having Lord 'fight' for native rights is like electing Custer to represent the Sioux.

Charles LeBlanc said...

ok...ok..ok...sigh....what a bunch!!!!!!!!!!! I hate to give in but I don't want 300 comments on the same issue!!!! I really hate to give in!!! Just one last time I have never heard during a news conference blacks calling themselves Niggers or Acadians Frogs!!! But I did hear Ntives call themselves Indians!!! But I will change it!!!! Sigh.......

Be Respect of all People! said...

I am French and I heard the term frog and that is not the same n#####; I won't go there no one should ever use that term. Would some one let me know what is the term people really want used for Canadian Native Indian is it Inuit; and what if I speak of a Canadian Black person. I don't want some ignorant person commenting; I just to be correct and respectful. Frog is not that offensive. Thank you for opportunities to ask question without offending anyone.

In truth, every single MLA or at least nearly every single one to my knowledge is a native Canadian, as is Charles as am I.

My understanding is that TJ Burke was the only ABORIGINAL MLA but if there's someone else, I stand to be coorected as does every media outlet in the province and the Liberal Party who keep telling us this.

Charles LeBlanc said...

Asking me to investigate? We got reporters to do this line of work. Another Native in the Legislature. I feel like this is the watergate era all over again. Someone possing like deepthroat in the Capital. Here's the story and look into it!!!!

The first rule of respect is to call people what they want, second rule is when you don't know, don't generalize.

A migmau doesn't want to be called a malecite, and neither wants to be called metis. There are three distinct groups. Many of course, simply want to be called canadian, but many obviously do not. If I wanted to call myself scottish because that's where most of my ancestors are from, that's my business and if you were respectful you'd respect my wishes. The same goes here.

keep doing research charles there is another

Charles, don't panic when I quote this phrase of what you said

" Asking me to investigate? We got reporters to do this line of work. "

If you can do this blog Charles, all joking aside, have you ever thought of starting up an online News Publication ?

Or even at the very minimum, get paying advertisers just to put their Business card or Logo on your blog ?

Just a thought ?

On line news publication; is something to consider! Advertising on your Blog could be another thought.

Charles LeBlanc said...

Attract kids to ths site???? Don't believe so...lol....I was appraoxh by some to advertisse in this site but I got nothing to do with this. It's WCIE who will make the decision. I just do the bloggling!!!!
