Apartheid – Canadian Style

Why Indian?  Because Indians insist on living under a Canadian law titled The Indian Act.

The Indian Act is a racist law.  It is archaic, condescending, and patronizing and keeps Canadians and Native-Canadians apart.  It is a legislated barrier that separates Indians from the modern world and obstructs full participation in its humanitarian benefits.  “The native people have suffered for 130 years under a federal government policy regime that has made them wards of the state”[1].
