As Canada 150 tulips bloom and the celebrations begin, Indigenous peoples are telling a very different story of the last 150 years. Adam Gaudry, a Métis academic whose research focuses on Métis politics, history and identity, says that Canada 150 celebrates a history that, for Indigenous people, doesn’t really exist.

“It’s a romanticized narrative of coming together as Canadians — which I think itself is a problematic assumption about Indigenous peoples — to celebrate this wonderful country that’s been built. It flies in the face of the stories of Canada that a lot of Indigenous people have been telling for the past 150 years.”

Whether rural, urban or remote, municipalities across Canada can now apply for grants of up to one million dollars for capital projects that will help them adapt to climate change impacts, such as flooding, extreme temperatures and drought, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. #cdnpoli

The reality is that low-income Canadians are invisible and lack political clout. In Toronto, they are concentrated in downtown areas close to the gleaming bank towers, in huge clusters of dilapidated rental towers not far from the crosstown expressways, or in pockets of subsidized low-rise units near major intersections. Tens of thousands drive by these areas daily, ignorant of the lives led there. In the nation’s capital, where politicians cook up policies to relieve their plight, Canadians living under the poverty line are totally unseen. #cdnpoli

This month a cargo ship carrying 55,000 tonnes of phosphate rock will land in North Vancouver. The cargo ostensibly belongs to Canadian-based Agrium Inc., purchased from the Moroccan state mining company OCP Group to produce fertilizer.

End of story? Not quite.

Wonder if this has anything to do with the price they are asking?

The number of homes in Vancouver that are either vacant or occupied by temporary and foreign residents almost doubled in the last 15 years.

With Parliament looking to summer recess, it is a good time to reflect on what went wrong, and what to like. #cdnpoli

Earlier this month the Toronto Star published an exposé complete with graphic photographs depicting horrific torture and abuse of prisoners in Iraq. What made the story and images so shocking was that this barbarism was not the handiwork of Daesh (aka ISIS or ISIL) evildoers, but rather that those atrocities were blatantly perpetrated by the Iraqi Emergency Response Division (ERD).

While Canadians are not directly in support of the ERD, the soldiers in this elite unit are very much Canada’s close allies in a common struggle.
