Canada is a uniquely beautiful nation for reasons including Mr. Taliano’s take on this great land. I hope that the people of Canada can see how the special status of First Nations can be the best thing for all of us who call this land home.

 The United Nations criticized us for our failures to provide food security  to Canadians.

 UNICEF condemned us for stopping a bill that would have provided developing world countries with cheaper drugs, thus sealing the fates of a multitude of victims who might otherwise have been cured.

 Amnesty International criticized us, this time with reference to Bill C-45, stating that “changes to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, the Fisheries Act, the Navigable Waters Act, and the proposed Safe Drinking Water For First Nations Act   have profound implications for the rights of Indigenous peoples as set out in treaties, affirmed in the constitution, and protected by international human rights.”

 Additionally, the international community has condemned us as being the first and only nation to drop out of the international KYOTO agreement.
