In response to Canadian Indians aligning with the government of Iran, I proposed Canada cut off all funding related to this aligning.
I should have gone even farther by insisting Canada cut funding to the Assembly of Fist Nations since these organizations “unofficially” communicate by consensus, meaning, all Indian leadership agree, before deciding on actions such as the delegation to Iran. They all know what’s going on and are all equally guilty. Silence in condemning Iran and Islamic totalitarianism is consent.
Here is my letter to John Duncan, cc. Stephen Harper, and Foreign Affairs Minister, Baird.
Date: Thu, 6 Sep 2012
Dear Honourable John Duncan,
It has come to my attention that the Ojibway tribe, along with American Indians have resorted to seeking relations with the government of Iran.
Understanding that Iran is one of the greatest threats, if not the greatest threat to North America, I am demanding that Canada sever all economic funding and cultural ties with the Ojibway tribe and cultural organizations.
For decades Canada has given millions upon billions of dollars to the “Assembly of First Nations” and if the Ojibway tribe and related organizations in their mutual cooperation with Iran, begin building a relationship that are known to be undermining the west and western values, then Canada must immediately sever all funding with the Ojibway people in Canada including the, “Assembly of First Nation” since this points to and is indicative of their highest aims and goals.
It is critical to realize that silence is consent. This news of the Ojibway going to Iran is on APTN news, a Canadian Indian news network across Canada. No one in the Indian community has reason for not understanding the ominous consequences of supporting a known terrorist regime like Iran with its proven record of deceit, hatred and outright murder and use of chemical weapons.
Iran’s support for terrorist and militant groups throughout the Middle East and Central Asia has a direct impact on international efforts to promote peace in the Middle East, threatens economic stability in the Gulf, jeopardizes the tenuous situation in southern Lebanon, and undermines the growth of democracy.
Iran has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support to Lebanese Hizballah and has trained thousands of Hizballah fighters at camps in Iran. Since the end of the 2006 Israeli-Hizballah conflict, Iran has assisted Hizballah in rearming, in clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. Is this what the Ojibway are seeking? With native conflicts in Ipperwash and Caledonia, it would seem so.
In addition, Iran remains unwilling to bring to justice senior al-Qa’ida members it detains, and refused to publicly identify those senior members in its custody. Iran has repeatedly resisted numerous calls, not just from the United States, to transfer custody of its al-Qa’ida detainees to their countries of origin or third countries for trial.
The above does not even address Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the president of Iran. Since 2005, he has been a developing Iran’s nuclear power contrary to orders from the United Nations Security Council to stop it. He has called for Israel to be”wiped off the map.” This goal includes mass murder. His second election was stained with the blood of his own people, so his record is clear.
To ally with Iran is akin to allying with pre-Nazi German storm troopers as it was ushering in Hitler.
As a reasonable an upright citizen, I am demanding your government, in cooperation with the provinces, and municipalities, end all and any economic support for the Ojibway organizations and anyone related who seeks Iranian relations. This includes the, “Assembly of First Nations.” These organizations must publicly denounce the Ojibway and American Indians desire for relations with Iran. Silence here and now is consent. Murderous cultures are not equal.
Canada must not condone or support in any way, known regimes that are trying to overtly or covertly undermine our western values and freedoms.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to your reply and willingness to stop it.

Dear Mr. Harlson:
Thank you for your correspondence September 6, 2012, concerning an Ojibway tribe seeking to establish relations with the Government of Iran. I share your concern over the potential development of such relations.
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canda’s mandate is to support Aboriginal peoples and Northerners in their efforts to: improve social well-being and economic prosperity; develop healthier, more sustainable communities; and participate more fully in Canada’s economy – to the benefit of all Canadians. Potential relations between an Aboriginal community and the Government of Iran will not support the efforts of Canada to achieve this mandate.
Furthermore, the Departments Aboriginals representative organizations’ funding policy governs the distribution of funding to eligible Aboriginal representative organizations for political advocacy, membership liaison, policy development, and project implementation. In order to receive funding, an Aboriginal representative organization must meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the policy and be able to demonstrate that it is mandated by its members to meet reporting requirements as outlined in the funding program’s terms and conditions. The funding received under this policy program may not be spent to promote engagement with countries such as Iran. Additional information on the Aboriginal representative organizations’ funding policy can be found on the department’s website: aandc-dnc.gc.ca
My colleague, the Honourable John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs, can address specific issues on Iran. I will provide his office with a copy of your correspondence and this response.

What would you say to an MPP (member of Provincial Parliament) who promotes Muslim religion, spokesmen who want to limit freedom of speech?
Dear Hon. Linda Jeffrey,
I was invited to an inter-faith symposium at Harold M. Brathwaite Senior Secondary public school a few Sunday’s ago. You were moderating discussion between several different religion speakers; Hindu, Sikh, Reformed Jew, Christian, and Muslim.
Looking around the room, I saw the Muslim women were physically separated by a make-shift wall from the Muslim men and other attendees. This was clearly wrong according to equal treatment of men and women. My question is why you were a moderator of such irrational behaviour, especially as a representative of Ontario.
However, my continuing question arises from the stated desire of the Muslim speaker who specifically stated his Mosques desire to limit freedom of speech. This is wrong and unacceptable!
This is not to be taken lightly or to sanction by silence. I think you should have spoken up as (moderator or not) and condemned the idea. It was not a friendly high school debate you were moderating. You were sitting as a representative of a member of provincial parliament. You represent all the people of Brampton.
Freedom of speech is the pillar of a civilized and free society. If a government wishes to become a dictatorship the first obstacle to full control is eliminating freedom of speech. The first step is to set “conditions” to freedom of speech, but freedom of speech is crucial and must not be limited if Ontarians are to have any kind of a future.
Totalitarian Islam is the proper concept in identifying and summarizing Islam’s continuing war against the west. It has not abated with approximately 20,000 reported physical attacks to spread this faith’s movement around the world since 911!
Islamic totalitarianism is continuing its physical aggression and, “creeping Sharia” (Islam domination by stealth) will not stop, especially after the complete withdrawing of our troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. America’s befuddled no-war war (a war with no goal to actually win) has only emboldened the believers of Islam. Take an honest look at Europe’s tolerance problems now – if you wish to know what I mean.
1. When will you and your party stop sanctioning creeping Sharia in Ontario, specifically in Brampton? Muslims have many different variations of their faith, but all the variations have the same fundamentals; Koran, “8:39: …fight until the whole world submits to Islamic law.”
2. The last time neo-mystic global movements threatened the world, North America did fight back until the Nazi and Shinto movements were thoroughly, unconditionally defeated. There was no multiculturalism to mask the enemy and to silence the people.
3. When will this provincial government recognize Islamic totalitarianism is a threat that is to be treated as a threat! For this, religion and politics cannot be joined. Put another way, the province of Ontario cannot have as its rule and guide, any mystic religious influence; neither Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Sikh or any other religion large or small. The sole authority of the Province of Ontario is derived from all the people of Ontario therefore governing is this-worldly, secular and must be objective in nature. Reason must prevail as Ontario’s ruling principle.
Thank you. I look forward to your reply. What will you do to ensure continuing freedom of speech?
TO DATE, I HAVE HAD NO REPLY FROM MPP LINDA JEFFERY.
