There Be Aboriginal Self-Government in Canada/United States of America?
The question that is brought up is not that of sex, but it is that of
aboriginals in Canada. The question that is asked is should there be an
aboriginal self-government? If the government were to go ahead and give
the natives there own government they would be losing money and would most
likely have angry taxpayers after their asses for the rest of there sorry
political lives. The government would also have to deal with a swarm of
Quebecans that would be harassing them because of their decision to give
the natives their own government, because of their 1995 appeal to separate
from Canada. The Quebecans would believe that if the natives get what they
want, they should also get what they want. That would mean that Quebec
would separate from Canada and create their own nation. However, if the
government refrained from processing the natives request of obtaining a
self-government, the government would be saving a lot of money and would
also be treating everyone in Canada as equals and not just giving what
they want because they have different color skin or different ethnic origins.
Issues brought up on creating an aboriginal self-government are very important
in the future of the Canadian government. I feel that if the government
created self-government for the natives, the government would be spending
too much money. The decision would cause the natives to become way too
greedy. And also that there is probably a little racism going on amongst
To carry on, giving the natives their own self-government has a worthy
advantage. That advantage being that when the government eventually processes
the native’s request of self-government, they will once and for all have
the natives off their back. At least they’ll think that they will. Either
way the government will have to put up with the whining of the disrupted
natives. There is still a pretty good chance that the natives will leave
the government alone for a while. After the years of complaining and fighting,
the natives got what they want. Hopefully they’ll be happy with what the
government gave them and not fight for any more rights, because they have
As mentioned in the first paragraph, giving the natives their own government
would cause the government of Canada to lose a lot of money that can be
used for other useful needs, such as spending the money on something more
useful, such as education, which there isn’t enough spent on. Maybe the
government could even think about putting some more money into health care
and give the less-fortunate people a chance to receive medical help when
needed instead of them not wanting to go a physician because of the amount
of money needed to attend one. The Canadian government is always complaining
about how they’re in debt and can’t afford to accomplish certain goals
they promised to achieve. Well I don’t see them turning down the request
to give the natives their own government, which will cost the government
a few dollars. The government should also maybe consider the fact that
there other things out in Canada that need capitol attention. The natives
are doing fine right now. There’s nothing wrong with the way they live.
Also, if this government succeeds, which it will, the natives will become
greedy and not take working and other things that us unfortunate, self-government-lacking
people, take for granted. When the natives receive their own government
they will most likely believe that they can get whatever they want and
when they want it from the government. They’ll probably think that why
should I work when I get everything from the government? Most of us non-native
people that don’t get treaty cheques, or half-price on tobacco, or even
don’t have to pay any taxes, have to work to get anywhere in this world.
Even if we do work as hard as we can, we still don’t receive the rights
that the natives receive. If yes is the government’s decision then the
natives will get everything they need and won’t have to work for it. So
in turn, there will be no natives in the work force, except for the ones
that don’t want to live a life of free money, excellent rights, and half-priced
tobacco and other products.
One last viewpoint is that I believe the government is being a tad racist
when dealing with this issue of aboriginal self-government. They expect
everyone to believe that they’re doing this for the native people because
of back in who knows when, when the natives willingly gave up their land
to the European settlers in Canada. There is no way that every non-native
Canadian is going to believe yet another lame excuse put out by the Canadian
government. I believe that the government is just giving the natives what
they want because they don’t want to be accused of being racist. Canada
is supposed have this image of a peaceful, non-violent, non-racist country
that is perfect in every way. Well Canada is pretty peaceful, but it sure
the heck isn’t non-violent or non-racist. The government just wants to
maintain that so-called “perfect” image, so they have to give the natives
whatever they want.
Finally, as stated many times before, the natives should not receive
their own government and that’s that. They should live their lives like
the rest of us non-native people do. They should have to work, pay full
price for products, pay taxes, and hunt in assigned hunting seasons. The
answer is obviously that they shouldn’t receive self-government. If they
want to have their have there own government then let them have it, but
make them pay taxes and do everything else like us non-native people have
to. Canada has always said to treat everyone equal, so how about the Canadian
Government lives up to what they say and stop being hypocritical.
