Great Show. Now Pony Up The Loot, Bigots.

The First Perspective – With a logo based on the Inukshuk, mascots inspired by indigenous myth, and an opening ceremony laden with aboriginal culture, Canada proudly showcased the heritage of First Nations in the winter Olympics to the world. What it didn’t showcase are the appalling social and economic conditions of reserve communities across the country…Hopefully, these initiatives will begin to hold the government to account for its discriminatory underfunding of First Nations.
