I received this info and invite from Support the Lubicon Cree group

Hi Lubicon supporters,

I got a message from another facebook group asking our group to pass this on to all of you. I think its important that everyone read this article. The facebook group 'Fire Margaret Wente' is working to get the 'author' fired.

"I was wondering if you might want to send an e-mail to group members urging them to contact the Globe and Mail about Margaret Wente's offensive article ("What Dick Pound Said Was Really Dumb - But Also True.) There is a facebook group[URL= ]here[/URL]

with contact information and suggestions. Given that this article was so offensive and perpetuates the dehumanizing stereotypes that allow TransCanada and other companies to trample people's rights, I thought group members would be interested."

Margaret Wente in the Globe and Mail perpetuates the dehumanizing stereotypes inaccuracies, myths, and engages in historical revisionism to support her views.

2. Call the Globe and Mail
Find Patrick Martin and Edward Greenspon in the directory, and demand Wente be dismissed.

3. Cancel your Globe subscription, or call someone you know who subscribes and encourage them to cancel.

4. Educate yourself about the real history of Indigenous peoples on this land, and share accurate information about what went on, and what's going on, with your friends and colleagues.
