Supreme Court expands land-title rights in unanimous ruling

YES THIS IS SO GOOD 

Aboriginal bands on the West coast of Canada now have more power than ever regarding the use and development of their land, as ruled by the Supreme Court. While the ruling stretches across Canada, historically speaking, the West Coast bands didn’t sign their lands away, unlike many of the East coast bands. This is a very important development in aboriginal history, but it also comes at an imperative time when projects such as the Gateway Pipeline are pushing for development…this gives aboriginal bands the power to stand up against government and industry, and have some say in the use of their lands!

Justin Bieber and Avil Lavigne? Canadian? Hahahahaha no no I think you meant UN-Canadian. Clearly not Canadian. Nope. Not here. Not one of us. Nooooo sir-ey.

klartie:

so Canada passed a law that allows provincial parks to be opened up to industrial activity 

that means big oil companies will be able to drill wells, build roads, and create giant tests pits in Canada’s beautiful provincial parks 

here’s the petition to revoke the park amendment act 

it’s only about 5000 signatures short of it’s goal and takes about 5 seconds to sign. even if you could just share or reblog that would be great

PLEASE PLEASE ALSO EMAIL YOUR MP AND THE BRITISH COLUMBIA MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT—I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. MPs, Committees, and Ministers may be able to ignore things like petitions, but THEY CANNOT IGNORE THEIR CONSTITUENTS. 

You can find your MP HERE

You can email the BC Minister of Environment, Mary Polak, using this email: ENV.Minister@gov.bc.ca

You can email the Prime Minister and his office HERE

PLEASE take the time to do this—I promise it only takes a few minutes, but it means all the world of difference! I petitioned to my MPs and such before it passed, but to no avail, but these bills CAN be re-appealed if the call is strong enough!

if you dont think canada lives and breathes its own stereotype just remember that my school is having a Poutine Festival

My fellow Americans, come November we must choose to elect either a gay cactus or a lying unicorn.

Oh and both of them are the antichrist.

#canadian elections are never this interesting

I beg to differ.

Evil robot nazi dictator or a hot gay idiot who is in seaforth.

Hmmmm….

I have my bow and arrows on this train.

I could def. just take it out and start shooting fuckers in the head and go all nutjob.

But I won’t.

'Cause this is Canada.

We don’t put metal detectors or screenings in our train stations for your luggage because we TRUST YOU.
