I must admit that I knew very little about the residential schools (the real pith and meat of what happened and why) other than what we are taught in our Cultural Sensitivity sections of our Nursing Program. (This is a shameful examples of how Canadian History in High School social studies glosses over the issue as if it never happened). So, I will not claim to be an expert on this issue nor on the merit of bringing charges against people who perpetrate crimes against humanity. I do consider myself to be a student of ethics and of societal importance and have come to know one self proclaimed savior of Aboriginals in Canada: Kevin Annett.
The purpose of this blog is not to defame the man, for I believe he is accomplishing that himself, but to instead deconstruct the lies and irresponsible behavior from a man who once represented the church he now vilifies.
I will try to be fair and impartial, but after-all this is a psychological war where the stakes are high for victims of the residential school, for missing Aboriginal women, for aboriginal rights and for the future survival of Aboriginals in Canada.
It is a war I intend to fight with dignity and honor, and with the help of God and the truth on my side, how can I possibly lose?
