white people be like oh my god what’s happening in ferguson is horrible I’m so glad my imperialistic european country that colonized 3/4s of the world or  white colony that gained independence and proceeded to kill off the native population doesn’t have institutionalized racism like those crazy americans

This actually exists. In 2014. I have a Canadian partner, I am mid transition…I knew I had to be careful but holy shit. This actually terrifies me. How does this make any sense? Why do gender markers even exist on photo ID’s?

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Canada a racist country? Sure racists live here, racists live everywhere, but people learn about Canada all over the world because we're a great example of multiculturalism. Seriously, I have friends in many countries that learn about us and our diversity. Do we have problems? Of course we do, every nation does. Are the Harper cons terrible? Of course they are. But to think Canada is terrible and racist is ignorant. Try learning more you idiot.

That said, the Texas-based company has also submitted requests for environmental assessments for four test wells that it has publicly said it intends to drill – not hydraulically fracture, mind you – in 2015.
The requests for assessments currently on the provincial desk are the proverbial death by a thousand cuts in that they only address specific steps in the drilling process. By itself, the construction of a well pad may not trigger an environmental assessment, nor would the construction of one test well. But pad by pad, well by well, the cumulative effects mount, building momentum without governmental address as was the case with the Alberta tarsands. Until drilling actually begins – if indeed it does – the provincial and corporate strategy will likely manifest itself as continued “relationship building” with First Nations groups. The Maritimes is unceded territory, and title remains in the hands of the original confederacy of First Nations groups who have inhabited the area since time immemorial.
