    So if First Nations are getting ultimatum’s then they should give ultimatum’s back! If Canada will not respect the Indian land their on then us Indians should unite across Canada and file the biggest land claim ever. Europeans made Treaty illegally which makes them illegal occupants to North America. First Nations are now able to understand their evil cunning and now if they keep disrespecting us then we might as well disrespect back. We’re liabilities to them now should we threaten their credit rating? Ukskitsistotok Napikoaks!
