Don’t be fooled by the Canadians for a New Partnership (CFNP) ploy

quoting from the article,which I think critically outlines the real intention of the Paul Martin/Joe Clark Canadians for a New Partnership (CFNP) toward indigenous peoples in Canada. See the whole article at the link below the quote

“Paul Martin, the Finance Minister responsible for the Liberal “hack and slash” era of the 1990s, enjoyed the message of The Canadian Century. Following the mandates of neo-liberal economic ideology, Martin shelved the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP), gutted First Nations program funding, and deregulated the industrial resource extraction industries responsible for obliterating Indigenous lands…..How might the Liberal Party acquire some ideas, win some elections, and re-establish its dominance? By fulfilling the prophecy of a resource-driven century of Canadian prosperity, of course. So, what’s holding us up? Well, according to Crowley and MLI, the main obstacle to Canada’s resource-driven renaissance is…Indigenous peoples. Which is why, during the winter of 2012/13, at the height of IdleNoMore, MLI initiated its 3-volume “Aboriginal Canada and the Natural Resource Economy Series,” co-written by Ken Coates and Brian Lee Crowley. The report outlines the character of Indigenous threats to Canadian prosperity and its proposed solution of re-directing and/or dissolving Indigenous resistance.”
