"Liberals sound alarm on native water quality"

If you read the latest headline by Gloria Galloway at the Globe and Mail, you might be confused into thinking that the Liberal Party of Canada went out and personally conducted a study into the water quality on native reserves. "Liberals sound alarm"? Really Gloria? It was the government who conducted the study that found 40% of reserves had risky water, and both the Ontario and Canadian governments have already enacted projects to improve the quality. What the f**k does this have to do with the Liberal Party? Sure they were in power from 1993 to 2006 and were clearly negligent on aboriginal water quality, but now they are out there doing the brave work of "sounding alarms"? How benevolent...

Instead of just writing a story on poor native water quality, Gloria decided to spin it into a story about the Liberals defending the poor oppressed aboriginals who obviously did not receive adequate filtration systems while the "natural governing party" was actually governing. Also Gloria, you do realize the NDP are now the official opposition and Linda Duncan made an almost identical statement to Carolyn Bennett today. Why isn't your headline "NDP sound alarm on native water quality"? They did, and they are the official opposition.

  1. Hm, various "interested Parties" have been sounding the alarm on Indian/Native/Aboriginal Reserve water quality for at least forty years.

    But nothing ever seems to change. Are the Chiefs not aware of these problems,and addressing it like any good Leader?

    We spend ,what, six?,eight?,ten? billion a year on a small number of Rez residents,last I heard about 600,000, so why in hell hasn't there been, at the very least, some improvement in Rez water supplies?

    Indian Bands should be auditted every couple of years by a good accounting firm,and every Band should have a competent comptroller to keep control of the Books.

    Call me suspicious, but I'm beginning to suspect something untoward in the way Band monies are allocated.

    Just a suspicion. I'll back off right away if someone plays the "race" card.

  2. Isn't Gloria married to some Liberal big wig. She does not recognize the NDP as the offical opposition, it's just to painful.

    Perhaps it is time to hold the natives accountable. Instead of just sending them cash, send a few well drillers. Deduct this expense from their yearly stipend and VOILA they will have water. That's if they need water. I hear the L.C.B.O.'s on reserves are the most profitable in the country.

  5. How do the Liberals a third rate party keep getting to be on national prime time television.Actually pretending that they are an important party with something to say.Go away Liberals,if this was so important ,you would have had it fixed when you were in power.The problem just did not happen overnight you idiots,it has been ongoing for decades and the more money you feed these chiefs ,it seems the poorer the bands become.How about investigating how the money is spent.

  8. Gallaway is just a silly, frustrated Liberal party operative, married to a Liberal party bagman. Like all Liberals, Gallaway just can't fathom the reality that her party is not in power, hell, they're not even the official opposition for F's sake. Gallaway illustrates the continuing contempt Liberals have for Canadians.
