The founding of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2007 unleashed a torrend of ham-fisted, tearful apologies -- televisions full of politicians repenting for the historic misdeeds of Canada.

Now universities, liberal organizing spaces, and even the Canadian Food Guide all reflect a new inclusion of Indigenous peoples among the churning of the state's wheels.

But this pamphlet contests this supposed inclusion, and the terms of reconciliation dictated by the oppressor, as stated within: "...I have no interest in reconciliation (at this time) and I think the concept is a state-lef smokescreen used to advance a more sophisticated policy of assimilation."
