Petitioning Justin Trudeau

We Want an Indigenous-led Government of Canada

With Canada's upcoming election, it is a time to reflect on the past and present injustices done to Canada’s Indigenous people. The legacy of colonialism is lived to this day by Indigenous mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers that have survived all the genocide of the past, and which continues on today. While we must extend a hand of love and understanding, we must also be aware of the role that we play in supporting modern colonialism. The responsibility is on all of us to set things right. Whoever the elected candidate, we call on them to right their wrongs of the colonial government and begin the process of transferring stewardship of Canada back to Indigenous people. The process isn’t as difficult as it may seem, especially for those that are committed to truth and reconciliation. The truth is that the colonial government has no right over stolen land. The only true reconciliation is to give back the land and political control to the Indigenous people, who own this land by right and by birth. We call on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to start the process of setting things right, and ask Minister Marc Miller and Minister Carolyn Bennett to offer their support. Whoever the elected Prime Minister may be, we will also be holding you accountable to doing much more than the previous administration.
