OSC continues Canada’s legacy of racism

As I write this, another highly successful and high-profile Indigenous person and proud Mohawk is not only being labelled, but in my opinion, unfairly kicked while he’s down in the media, and by the powers-that-be at the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC). Even before a shred of evidence is heard in a courtroom, David Sharpe’s life as a successful CEO on Bay Street and champion of Indigenous economic development has been destroyed. David and his former company, Bridging Finance, have been tried and convicted in the court of public opinion, the careers and lives of many disrupted by a one-sided smear campaign, even before Sharpe and the Bridging team have an opportunity to defend themselves. There have been no formal allegations or Securities Act charges in the seven months since the OSC released compelled evidence contrary to their own statute and the protections provided by the Canadians Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Onkwehon:we and Brantford residents unite and #landback Arrowdale

Bridges were being built between Save Arrowdale members and Onkwehon:we. One of the stated goals of the movement was to preserve the golf course; however, after learning more about the Haldimand Tract and land claims Heaslip admitted that “It might never be a golf course again.” Bomberry appreciates their assistance: “They’ve offered to do security at night and help out; but they have to understand that we have different rights, we are protected. You wanted it to stay green, you wanted it to stay a golf course, but I can’t promise that,” he said “You guys have it instilled in you that you have to fight legally and obey the laws, you guys will get justice in following this way, but now you’ve spent a lot of time, you’ve spent a lot of money to find out it’s to no avail; your legal system has let you down. Your politicians have let you down, they want development here.”
