Remember Occupy, Canada? A new Statistics Canada analysis of income trends among Canadian taxfilers from 1982 to 2010, released today, confirms three of the many concerns Occupy protesters expressed in late 2011. Concerns relating to income inequality, poverty, corporate greed, etc.
First, members of the exclusive club of the top one per cent of Canada’s 25.5 million tax filers have a monopoly on the nation’s total income. In 2010, they grabbed 10.6 per cent of it. That’s up from the 7.0% they claimed in the 1980s.

The CBC News is reporting that Gavin van der Linde, the mayor of Morris, a southern Manitoba town, is “furious over what he calls racist comments about aboriginal people in the latest edition of the community newspaper”. The editorial of the Morris Mirror’s current edition (PDF), penned by editor-in-chief Reed Turcotte, also labels Canada’s Aboriginals and Idle No More activists ”terrorists”.
natives are acting like terrorists in their own country. Indians/Natives want it all but corruption and laziness prevent some of them from working for it.

Hunger-striking Attawapiskat First Nation Chief Theresa Spence is the reincarnation of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. She is becoming the greatest moral and political leader of our time. In fact, Chief Theresa Spence’s courage and sacrifice already eclipses that of South Africa’s globally-celebrated anti-apartheid icon, Nelson Mandela.
Mandela came to us pre-packaged. Challenging the narrative of his heroism is mission impossible. Chief Spence’s narrative is unveiling right before the world’s eyes. It’s impossible to embellish.
