Brigette DePape, the Senate page who held up a “STOP HARPER” sign during the Conservative’s 2011 Throne Speech, and being escorted out by the Sergeant-at-arms for it, was a panelist on the October 6, 2015 episode of TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin, on the topic of The Young and Disengaged, concerning the low youth voter turnout in Canadian elections.

I understand the context of their cheering and clapping when Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commissioner said that Canada had participated in a period of “cultural genocide” — not in support of the purported government program of cultural genocide against Native Canadians, as it was termed to have taken place in Canada from the period of 1867 (its founding) to 1969 — but it betrays the radical and warped agenda of those non-Native Radical Leftist audience members who were hoping for such strong language in order to fuel their radical social and historical revisionist agenda on Canadians.

From the description of the May 27, 2015 show posted on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin’s YouTube channel:

Perry Bellegarde was elected National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations in December 2014. Nearly half a year into his term, The Agenda checks in to see what issues he’s prioritized and what progress he’s made on longstanding concerns such as land claims, education and missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls.

Five minutes into the interview, I noticed his accent markedly change, from speaking to an audience of Canadians (almost all non-Native), to his Native audience.

So much for the notion of a departure from business as usual for a Native leader, in acting differently than a typical politician with regard to appealing to his particular audience.

He followed in the footsteps of President Obama and Hillary Clinton, who adopted a foreign accent specifically to appeal to their audience.

I understand the idea of appealing to one’s audience, but unless you’re immigrating to another nation or speaking a completely different language, for me, it’s a type of deception to markedly change your accent from one audience to the next, just to appeal to them. When I attended the 2009 Rethinking AIDS Conference in Oakland, California, I remember an American attendee point out my Canadian accent, and I realize that he was somewhat making fun of it for its distinctiveness and stereotypical Canadianness, but for me it is a symbol of my personal identity, and I don’t intend to change it just to curry better favour with an audience whose accents may be significantly different than mine.

Here’s monetary reformer Bill Still on an important monetary court case victory in Canada by COMER (the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform), concerning the power of the federal and provincial governments to borrow money from the Bank of Canada interest-free (or effectively interest-free, by the federal government receiving the Bank’s profits).

My comment:

Great news, indeed, and very important, since cases like this are usually thrown out due to standing issues, with the bogus claim by judges that the petitioners aren’t eligible to have their case heard due to reasons like not being directly affected, etc.

And unlike a direct constitutional challenge, they are actually pointing to a statute, which is very important, since the court can’t say that it’s just the petitioners’ interpretation of the constitution, but it’s right there as active law because unfortunately these judges and lawyers have been trained to treat statutes more seriously than plain-meaning interpretations of the Constitution itself.

What I do wonder is how they can force the government to get loans from the Bank of Canada, and also how they can be made interest-free, since the provision just mentions loans, but not the interest rate, and of course the banksters will not want them to be interest-free.

But there is a nice way that the loans become effectively interest-free if the federal government does the borrowing, since the government is the sole shareholder of the Bank, and all profits return to the government.

For my interview with Bill Still about his documentary, Jekyll Island, see here.
