The Canadian government likes to throw the word democracy around in their PR campaigns, to boost its international image as a champion of human rights. But peeps in Turtle Island know that KKKanada’s rulers want nothing to do with democracy and everything to do with land destruction and profit.

From the YouTube page:
Barriere Lake Solidarity has produced this video to help bring attention to the current struggle of the Algonquins of Barriere Lake: The Canadian Government’s attempt to take control of the community through an obscure provision of the Indian Act known as Section 74. The video is narrated by Barriere Lake spokesperson Norman Matchewan.
