Here is the Green Party’s 1400-word research paper on my recent op-Ed in the Tyee. My response to their paper can be found at the end of the piece:
Robert Jago’s Tyee piece draws a rebuttal from Green headquarters, and he replies.

Did a pedantic atack on your use of a search engine need all those words? And two grand footnotes! Yikes. Might as well be the people who want to quote dictionary definitions at us.

Did the deliberately overlook their main issue? Or are they really this obtuse when it comes to listening to and engaging with Indigenous people? I suspect it’s both and that rings some HUGE, thundering alarm bells for me.

Do we disengage and start our own leadership and government systems? Or reinvigorate our traditional ways outside the Indian Act?

The entire system was created to oppress us in every way. They’re all bad. The entire system is bad. Do we settle for who oppresses is the most gently? Which party is that?

'Vote' for your own Nations. Stay the feck away from colonizer politics. Focus on re-learning, reclaiming, rebuilding and implementing your own Indigenous governance systems. We know they work - because they are fully informed by THE LAND.

NDP leader opposes the pipeline expansion, believes the way in which project was approved is at the heart of the issue. He wants new process that holds all energy projects to three standards, climate change goals, local opportunities, rights of Indigenous people.

That doesn’t work. You need to understand Indigenous values to understand “economic development” is a sham for us. We know the true value of these resources and it’s not currency. Economy isn’t a reason to deflect from the honorable harvesting practices of the original peoples.

Sorry, I respect Indigenous values, heartily. Perhaps I am misunderstanding Singh's stance. I will look into this further.

Evidently the salient point was the search engine [?] ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

, we have to do better here. Please respond substantively to the legitimate criticism at core of ’s op-Ed. Please let’s also be receptive/grateful for the scrutiny that comes with increasingly mainstream status— it’s fair and helps clarify work needed.

It strikes me that instead of a hugely stupid and defensive diatribe, they could have asked a question: how can we do better? And then listened.
