Victoria residents might be invited to donate to First Nations when paying taxes

 

Unlike property taxes that you have to pay by July 1, the contribution could be paid at any time.
 

 

The British Monarchy and the Catholic Church did the deed, They should "pay". Shoot The British Monarchy still "owns" Canada. Just give it to us people. The First People and the Second People and the Third People. Plus give us half their treasure for messing with us all.

Looks like we finally have solutions.



Not everyone would be willing to confess their sexual secrets to a room full of strangers. That's where Kim TallBear and her Indigenous erotica event, Tipi Confessions, comes in.

"I confess: my first lesbian experience was with a white person. Even if she couldn't give any land back, she did give me many orgasms," says TallBear, reading an anonymous confession written and submitted by an audience member at a show during Toronto's 2019 Queer Film Festival.

The Hudson's Bay Co., which facilitated the colonization of Western Canada 352 years ago, is about to transfer its former flagship department store in downtown Winnipeg to Indigenous ownership.
 
On Friday morning, The Bay will hand over its six-storey, 655,000-square-foot building at the corner of Portage Avenue and Memorial Boulevard to the Southern Chiefs' Organization, which represents 34 Anishinaabe and Dakota Nations in southern Manitoba. 
 
The SCO plans to spend $130 million in the coming years transforming the former Bay building into a mixed-use development called Wehwehneh Bahgahkinahgohn, or "it is visible."
 
Plans for the project include 300 affordable housing units for members of Southern First Nations, two restaurants, a public atrium, a rooftop garden, a museum and an art gallery.
 
One of the restaurants, on the main floor, will serve First Nations cuisine. The second will be a reboot of the Bay department store's Paddlewheel restaurant.
 
The project will also include office space for Indigenous entrepreneurs, a health centre, a childcare facility, a seniors centre, a new seat of government for the SCO and a memorial for residential school victims and survivors.
 
The SCO plans to transfer two beaver pelts and one elk hide to Richard Baker, the HBC's governor and executive chairman, as a symbolic payment for the building, which has been valued at $0 due to the cost associated with renovating the 96-year-old structure and maintaining its heritage elements.

So HBC gets to dump a building that is essentially worthless due to its condition (and probably gets a big tax credit in return) and the SCO has $130M to renovate?!

Plus they get those beaver pelts.

That $130M is probably from taxpayers.

Bribing them from looking for true reparations. Which would involve kicking out the monarchy who facilitated the Hudson's Bay corp.

One of the Anglican Church's top officials is visiting Saskatchewan to "repent and atone for where our actions caused more harm than good."

Rev. Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, is set to visit the James Smith Cree Nation southeast of Prince Albert on Saturday afternoon, the first visit by a church official since 2017.

"The visit will be an opportunity to listen, to lament and to pray for justice, healing and transformation in the relationship between the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island and the Arctic and the See of Canterbury and the Church of England," a statement from Welby's office published on Tuesday said.
