Amnesty International calls for independent investigation

It’s mid evening of July 1st, 2010, and I’m just reflecting on my many ambivalent feelings about Canada day. Today, when I reflect on what Canada means, I can’t help but think of police, patriarchy, Harper, poverty, white supremacy, Christian supremacy, gendered violence, oppression and colonization. I think there are good things too. I do. But when the dominant culture refuses to acknowledge or try to understand the bad stuff, then it makes it hard for me to think of anything else.
