From Canada, another Russia 'fake news' red herring
Is Marijuana Decriminalizing Better For Freedom Than Legalization?

"Ukraine repeatedly refers in its claim to Crimea�s unification with Russia as an �illegal occupation�, and claims compensation for the alleged �discrimination� and �oppression� by Russia of Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar minorities in Crimea, it does not actually seek a declaration from the International Court that the unification of Crimea with Russia is contrary to international law."
Here�s why Ukraine is suing Russia in the International Court of Justice

Canadian Governments are training Ukraine military to fight more effectively if need be against  Russia, who we say stole Crimea.
News and reality sometimes differ.

You must be kidding Joe, about the benefits of residential schools.  The approach was all wrong.  If education was to be brought to natives of the land, educators should have moved into the regions, instead of taking children out by force.  They could have learned from each other, instead of imposing one culture over another.

Subject: Truth & Reconciliation

Dear Senator Byek: Thank you for your public remarks on an aspect of the residential school system that has not been aired. You have shown the very best of what the Senate should be---and so often has not been in evidence in living memory. I sense that you are alone with your notion of balance, sober second thought, and the usefulness of truth in the reconciliation process.  Shame on any of your colleagues who haven't admired (or have spoken against) your courage to speak your moderating words. 

As an aside, years ago, I was a volunteer with the Indian-Eskimo Association of Canada, and as such I was imbedded with a Department of Northern Affairs geographical survey of northwest Hudson Bay.  My task was to study the influence of the Protestant and Catholic churches, Hudson's Bay Co., RCMP, and federal government, on the established people who lived there, who called themselves Eskimos exclusively, as did everyone else; and that name also was in all the literature that I saw. Before flying north, I stayed in Ottawa as a guest of the head of Plans & Policy for the Canadian Arctic. An elderly gentleman had a small room with a bunk and a sleeping bag in that Northern Affairs office, and I was very impressed, because his name was Diamond Jenness, the author of Indians of Canada (a seminal work), which my brother Robert had given me years earlier on my 16th birthday. I remember his telling me (me taking notes, no doubt) that all native children should be taken, dressed in smart uniforms, and given nice educations in good private schools away from home. (This was the time that Farley Mowat has just written The People of the Deer, about starvation in Eskimos who were following the deer, and the government had thought that starvation was not an option for any 20th century Canadians.) Later, I sailed in a sloop with Diamond's son north of Baker Lake, so we had many chances to argue about what to do about the native problems in the swaying light of a Coleman lamp.
