Ahenakew's Trial

I actually feel a bit sorry for this old thug. It is true that he accomplished some good things for First Nations people in the country while he was spewing his vile bigotry and gutter language. But, I can't help but think that this article just goes to show that he and his followers are just a well oiled excuse generating machine (aka Indian Industry) and are not above making things up:
"Bighead had a different recollection from previous witnesses of when the interview between Parker and Ahenakew occurred. Bighead said the interview took place about 10 minutes after her father finished speaking at the conference; Parker had previously testified that he waited about an hour, until two other speakers finished, before approaching Ahenakew. FSIN Chief Lawrence Joseph, meanwhile, has said Parker approached Ahenakew immediately after Ahenakew spoke.

Under cross-examination, Bains played the conference videotape in which Parker can be seen walking past the podium after the morning's speakers had finished and the lunch break was announced."
You see, if he and the movement he spawned hadn't been such confrontational, lying, loudmouth bigots things could have turned out a whole lot better for a whole lot of First Nations people who are still at the bottom of the heap, thanks to their services as platforms being necessary for the Indian Industry to step on. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The Indian movement needs a Dr. Martin Luther King whose vision can inspire everyone to overcome this festering problem.
