Fixing the Worse but not the Bad

CBC news is reporting today on the worsening of the plight of Canada’s Aborioginal people in prison.   The fact of life for Aboriginals who want to be Aboriginal is that they live ion a prison called Canada.  The worsening of conditions for the First Nations is the legacy of a evil European idea – cross the oceans and play “chosen people” venturing into a “promised land”. 

The Americans did it openly with religious fervour and a cruel slave trade, but Canadians have been sugar-coating the oppression of First Nations and have not had the guts to identify publicly that it is the “bad ” in the treatment of First Nations that needs to be addressed, not the alarmist “worse” as in the latest CBC report.

The national broadcaster can do much more.  Who will fix the bad in Canada’s treatment of FirstNations?
