Email I sent to Netflix:

Dear Netflix

Due to Netflix position on the Native issues surrounding Adam Sandler's latest production, which I might add is ridiculous as much as Netflix's response to the Indigenous Artists actions and pronouncements: I am refraining from updating my automatic payment plan to utilize your services.

Ironically, I lost my debit card and went to my bank to replace it. I was going to update my Netflix account with my card, as I do enjoy your services, but then my indigenous colleagues withdrew from your production for valid reasons, which as a Native Artist and community supporter, I must stand with.

Until Netflix re-evaluates the semiotics of Sandler's script and understand the cultural significance of our position as the first people of this continent with respect to cultural authenticity, cultural appropriation, and the differences of the sacred, the profound, and the satirical, I will consider  re-joining Netflix. This email will be posted on my social media pages

Thanks, I was surprised to find it. A copy of a vhs transfer from a 3/4 inch videotape. That was done around 94, the original vhs vhs copy; 20 minutes went missing somewhere along the line

Either you are with us or against us!!! My Monologue to the committee!.....

 Rhetorical question indeed the Conservative MP pronounces in his Canadianized moment of fame during his 7 minutes. , As this news article shows there is little agreement, compromise, or balance with respect to this bill. The Conservative government is painting a hard autocratic line between those who oppose this new legislation or agree with it. Fascist to the point now as the ultra right wing capitalist begin to re-signify and re-define the notion of national security within the borders of their Victorian drawn nation state borders. Transforming the historical definition of Canada's former Conservatives government of the 90s who called Canada's first people, terrorist, militants, saboteurs ad provocateurs. As the RCMP officer during the Gusterferson said during that campaign: "...Smear propaganda, that's our specialty..". Now the terrorist can be anyone one of us now depending of the semantics of the question, answer, accusation, or judgement. The apparatuses of the current ruling government will always be used to perpetuate the status quo of the ruling class of economics, bloodline, and historical positioning which in terms of national security , really meaning protecting the people in power, and all those who have been selected for all those underground bunkers built for the end times..... Ya right looking after us as a people (Canadians) but then when the S#%#$$T really hits the fan; What will be our national interests of security be the next time around during the election?. Fight this legislation, because we are part of Mother Earth and the Natural law, and our body, land, water, air, and space is being eroded away to the point where our life becomes an open book for a system bent on defining the rights and freedom of the individual in an supposing opened free society. I have some experience in this matter,I was considered a security threat when I was hired for a Federal corporation one year. Hired , with passing the attitude test, quite exceptional, yet I waited for the call to begin. Finally after I phoned back, and investigated, I found out why I was not called. I won the CHR case, and aboriginal people will not go thru what I went through avec this certain Federal government hiring practices. During my filming of 7 Fires 4 U...Kitchi Manitou, Our production vehicle was followed by unknown occupants, and I was interviewed by CSIS early 2000s as a possible candidate for their organization. They were surprised when I told them about the security threat situation and how I won the case. Another time I fought another Fed corporation to get an award grant I won and was then offered a reduced percentage of the grant due to "privatization" of the corp at the time. I said no, I continued my fight against this apparatus until I gave up and finally wrote the head "director general" and secured the grant two weeks later after 6 years back and forth. "The system is not favourable" to Native people with existing racist legislation, nor is the development, construction, mining, forestry, oil, and consumeristic industries all bent on securing the most money, resources, and space year after year. All under the protection of this national security interest legislation. So do we as this lands first people pronounce the statement either you are with us or against us to protect Mother Earth, and really stand up against the system and become and re-signified as the criminal, terrorist, or militant again, but this tme the sys\tem includes the rest of humanity, Think about it seriously! Sorry Taz, stealing your ending line...lol
In the first hour of testimony at Thursday’s review of the government’s anti-terrorism bill, Conservative MPs posed only one question: "Are you fundamentally opposed to taking terrorists off the streets?" Conservative MP Rick Norlock asked of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association.

Exactly, this is what I am writing about in earlier post. The democratization of political dissent becoming the criminalization of political dissent 
Cross-Canada protests denounce government's proposed anti-terrorism legislation, giving police much broader powers and giving new powers to Canada's spy agency.

My condolences to  the families of the Calgary and Regina Individuals who passed forward to the Great Creator, Le Grande Artist du Universe, the life and time of  all that is good in his garden on Mother Earth. My condolences to the theatre community for the loss of these good people. Their denouement will not be forgotten, people and indigenous people affected by this tragic collision are sadden and in shock. Creator help us all in these times of trouble and death. :-(
