Iran using Canadian indigenous chiefs as political pawns

Aboriginal leaders from Manitoba are being used as pawns by the Iranian government, an official from Canada's Foreign Affairs Ministry said Wednesday.



Two current and two former chiefs from Manitoba met with the senior diplomat at the Iranian embassy in Ottawa earlier this week. They say they are on track to get an invitation to visit Iran and meet with government officials about possible support and investments in First Nations in Canada.



"Iran has a long history of supporting indigenous sovereignty in North America," said Terry Nelson, former chief of the Roseau River First Nation south of Winnipeg.



Monday's meeting came about after Nelson sent a letter to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seeking assistance in February.



Nelson said he's written similar letters to other governments for years

  • More meddling and shit stirring by those Iranian mullah cunts. They would really like that one chief named David Ahennikew(sp) who a few years back said "Hitler should have finished the job and killed all the Jews".

    If ever a country needed a severe spanking it is Iran. Basically I can honestly say that Iran and Pakistan cause all the major problems in the world. Throw the Saudi's in there as well for their secretive funding of jihadi's.

    Take away the aforementioned pricks and the wo More..

  • LMAO

    Yeah, okay.

    What happened to all the money the Canadian government has already given the aborigines?

    The tribal chiefs take it & nothing changes. Well except they get richer. The peoples lives aren't any richer for it.

    But hell why not. Take Iran's money. Irans gonna be shocked when they get nothing in return. but most Canadians won't be. :-)

    All iran will get is a bit of propaganda that most dismiss anyway.

  • Canada is 1st oil exporter to U.S.... U.S. is the only country in the OECD that DOES NOT import from Iran. Do you see the problem? We are the muppets puppets and the pawns.

      Really fuckface, and what exactly were the indigenent Natives doing prior to White Man coming to North America.
      Answer fuckface.
      Wiping out any other Native Bands that got in their way for better lands that fed their families.

      It doesn't matter what tribe you came from what conitinent you came from, or what era you talk about.
      When the Big Guy wants what you got, and you can't defend it, or you don't adapt to it. YOU LOOSE.

      History lesson over asshole.

      My apologies to First Nations for most of the ignorance above.

      I had no idea racism was such a part of our society still.

  • Canadian government saying Iran is playing games? The same Canadian government that's backing NWO propaganda in regards to "terrorism" and "weapons of mass destruction".

  • "The Iranian regime is now attempting to exploit tragedy and feign concern as yet another PR stunt to distract from its own abhorrent record".......that sounds ironic and laughable......the word Iranian should be replaced by KKKanadian...........

      Your argument sounds so typical......ask the Auzis (rhymes with Nazis)and see what they have to say about the Aboriginals there.....then go talk to the AmeriKKKans.....maybe from there you could go to South AfriKKKa or even Latin AmeriKKKa and let me know how the attitudes differ........
