This is an open letter to all Ontario Citizens and visitors:
A vote was held on February 29, 2016 to March 7, 2016 on the proposed Agreement-in-Principle among the "ALGONQUINS OF ONTARIO" Voters and the Governments of Ontario and Canada.
MUCH Different from the normal municipal/government voting that we Citizens of Ontario are used to:
From the AOO
from the above, these "AOO" ("ALGONQUINS OF ONTARIO") VOTERS HAVE HAD:
"ALGONQUINS OF ONTARIO" VOTERS HAD 90 DAYS TO CONSIDER THIS A.I.P. Plus SEVEN DAYS TO VOTE AS IT WAS MAILED TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM AND THEY HAD NO EXPENSES, DIDN'T HAVE TO GO TO ANY MEETINGS OF ANY KIND OTHER THAN TO POST THE BALLOT!
information with secrets (printed and on DVD) were mailed to each individual "AOO" voter in early December 2015
another was mailed to each individual "AOO" voter in early January 2016
to consider and have dialogue amongst themselves about this AIP ( (Agreement In Principal)
which on May 29, 2015 page 3 show this document had been signed by 3 people, all lawyers that have ties with individual law firms, nobody seem connected with governments (either Federal or Provincial.)
- Robert J Potts
- Brian A. Crane Q.C.
- Ronald L. Doering
My question is who has been representing the people of Ontario?
some of that "voter package" was secret to any other non Algonquin Of Ontario (WHY?)
a mail-in voting system
which did not require them to travel,
or attend polling booths,
or even spend money on postage,
or spend money as our tax dollars paid for this.
Everything was made very easy for them to vote!
Isn't failure to mail these ballots not counted as a negative vote? If not, why not?
The following 3 pages were taken from the
Late August, 2017 correspondence from the Ontario government that I have commented on!
To me, it seems that the AOO voters were treated much better than Ontario citizens by their own government.
FOLLOWING IS THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT'S OWN TIME LINE - POINTING OUT HOW LONG AND HOW BADLY ONTARIO CITIZENS WERE TREATED BETWEEN THE MID 1980'S UP TO THE 31 AUGUST, 2017 BECAUSE THESE CITIZENS HAVE BEEN KEPT IN THE DARK AND HAD NO INPUT TO THIS CLAIM.
IS THIS IS OPEN GOVERNMENT?
MORE OF THE SAME - BUT LOOK AT HOW MANY "AOO" PEOPLE THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT THINK THERE ARE - Approximately 10,000 people of Algonquin descent live in the land claim territory." The area has a population of 1,200,000. which makes that less than 0.01 percent AOO.
TVO's "Who has the right to Ontario's Algonquin Lands" is interesting.
Here is the "ALGONQUINS OF ONTARIO" news media release hat, to me, doesn't seem logical
Using Mr. Potts' figures - OVER 53% OF THE AOO "ALGONQUINS OF ONTARIO" VOTERS DID NOT VOTE PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY DID NOT AGREE WITH THAT AGREEMENT IN PRINCIPAL
From the Ontario Governments estimate of 10,000 the AOO seems to have shrank to 7,540 eligible Algonquin Voters. What is even strange is that the Ontario Government seems to have accepted
the baffle gab -- "The tripatile" (not spelled right) "ratification vote was positive with Algonquin Voters supporting the AIP by a strong margin, and unanimously in one community."
My rational for this rejection is that the abstaining AOO voters had 90 days to ponder this and to discuss this amongst themselves ad a mail-in vote that requires no travelling to poll booths, no expense (didn't even have to buy envelopes or stamps) and seven days to fill that ballet out and mail it. BUT THEY DISAGREED WITH THE A.I.P. AND DELIBERATELY DID NOT MAIL THAT LETTER! THE VOTE WAS NEGATIVE TO MR. POTT'S DESIRES!
I think that most of the AOO voters that abstained realized that the "fee simple" land would belong to the AOO organization not them - they could they could never own or have the advantages of owning it AND they would be under the control of this organization for time immemorial! In other words what they were being asked to vote for was to join what seems to be a modern communist organization (very much like the current Indian Reserves) which collides with their inherent traditions and values.
This article shows that most Algonquin people have been free people for a very long time (it is part of their proud heritage and traditions.) Reading this history is an eye opener that every non AOO CITIZEN should read.
And, please, don't forget the Metis and other First Nations as this Algonquin Land Claim who are really being discriminated against and we shouldn't forget the citizens of Ontario!
ALL CITIZENS (INCLUDING VISITORS) HAVE BEEN FREE TO VISIT AND USE CROWN LANDS FOR RECREATION WITH VERY FEW RESTRICTIONS BEFORE THE CURRENT ONTARIO GOVERNMENT GOT THE MANDATE TO CHANGE THAT and WHY THAT IS i CANNOT UNDERSTAND. THIS IS THE YEAR TO CORRECT THAT!
