Harper plays race card on BC fisheries.
Y'know, I don't think there's a single slimy right-wing trick that Stevie won't use to try to curry enough votes to get a majority next time around. Now he's trying to play the race card with regard to BC's native (First Nations) fisheries: here. So, in essence: our forebears stole their land, stole their fisheries, shoved them onto reserves, and committed countless atrocities upon them. And yet, it's somehow unfair if we give them a couple more fishing days per year than we get, even though the chances of a First Nations man or woman getting any other job in fair competition with a non-native are miniscule. Right.
