EVERYONE knows if ANYONE else protested this way they would be thrown in jail.....why dont the protesters work on getting rid of band corruption FIRST....find out why chiefs have 6 figure salaries, 2 or 3 residences etc....while most native people live in poverty? Get an accounting of where all the money goes....follow the money and my guess is MANY will be shocked at the results......

Any one can protest in this way and not get thrown in Jail.

The group was large enough and arranged the whole protest. They were afforded no extra priveleges under the circumstances.

Anyone eh? I didnt see the teachers blocking highway traffic? Come to think of it i cant think of ANY protest that has been allowed to block a major intersection in North Bay....

Maybe u can give me some examples oldtimer?

The truth is the government and police are scared of the natives.....the truth is the government is scared to look into native corruption and find out why Band leaders live like kings/queens while 'their people' live in poverty???

Follow the money....follow the money.....natives, as well as the general public would be shocked to see where the money is spent.....

The tax payers of Canada need to start our own movement. How about calling it Pay No More!

Bravo biker barbie!

oldtimer....still waiting on your examples??? Besides natives, who has been allowed to block highway traffic and disrupt rush hour like we saw yesterday??

I do think something like a forensic audit should be done to find out where the money has gone and how it has been spent. We all deserve to know. But just like the North Bay Food Bank when a forensic audit was started it was just shut down but an illegal AGM and seems to have been just swept under the carpet. So I think we will never eally know the truth and these people will continue to like like kings and queens while their people suffer. It is just how it seems to be.

mac3.....u may be right but i think the taxpayers as well as the government are SLOWLY getting to the point where an audit or something like it(some type of fiscal responsibility) will get done.....after all, it is the government that hold's the purse strings and something tells me that they will eventually get to a point where they will not hand out more money without some type of accounting for it....(ie where it is being spent!!)

I sure hope your right dealer. It would be in everyon's best interest to have to be accountable for the money you are given and how you spend it. So much is wasted. And here with sit with a totaly paid in full no refund forenic audit and it has been stopped long ago because of what fear. The native people would be much better off it they had to account for the monies given and much more fair I am sure.

Hmmm six hundred billion in debt after coming in with a surplus. Someone certainly should be accountable. Not to mention the Federal PC's being about as transparent as a lead apron.
