Canada Day 2020 marks the fifth anniversary of the unveiling of a bronze statue of John A. Macdonald Holding Court (MHC) on Picton Main Street. Supporters and critics of MHC disagree strongly about Macdonald’s legacy and what honouring him with public memorials says about us.

For the MBQ to claim in its proposed “Cannabis Control Act” that it, as an Indian Act Band Council and creature of the Federal Government, is a “First Nation” and that it exists as “part of the Mohawk Nation and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy” and that thereby it has “the existing and inherent right of self-determination, which includes the inherent jurisdiction over their lands, people and territory” is a blatant falsehood and an act of economic and political appropriation.
