A pipeline offers a stark reminder of Canada’s ongoing colonialism
As Coastal GasLink employees cleared the camp to make way for a natural gas pipeline, they sawed in half a wooden gate with one word painted on it: “reconciliation.”

That word has been used by the Canadian government to describe their supposed desire to make things right with the indigenous people after centuries of ongoing genocide. But “reconciliation” is not an official policy but rather a political buzzword repurposed to signal moral progress on indigenous issues.

However, right now it is very hard to argue that Canada’s treatment of indigenous people actually has progressed.

California’s Little-Known Genocide - HISTORY
An estimated 100,000 Native Americans died during the first two years of the Gold Rush alone; by 1873, only 30,000 indigenous people remained of around 150,000. According to Madley, the state spent a total of about $1.7 million—a staggering sum in its day—to murder up to 16,000 people.

Why I Took My Daughter to Auschwitz - Condé Nast Traveler
A modern-day exhibit held a vertical book, thousands of pages long, inscribed with the names of all of the dead. I looked up my own last name: There were 11 pages, in tiny type, rows upon rows upon rows of Orensteins, Ornsteins, Ohrensteins, Orenshteins. I wondered if any were my cousins. I wondered how old they were, what their lives were like, whether they’d had children, whether those children were dead too. I thought about the generations lost, the descendants unborn, and felt my knees buckle.
