Jesus people, how forking hard is it? Just hop on your forkin walrus or whatever and come on down to where white people will take care of you!

I mean, DUH.

also, the Inuit have historically lived on much more sustainable lands with milder climates and higher animal populations. the ones that have survived have been pushed further and further north, because European colonialists (ie my ancestors) wanted the good land. so i'm sure, after all that history, the white canadians who shoved the Inuit out of the way will be SUPER happy and willing to move back to France and England and fricking Hungary or wherever, so that all the First Nations can live somewhere more hospitable.


Quoted for truth.


They were actually moved past the tree line in the 50's (often by force and manipulation) by the Canadian gov as a cold war tactic , in order for Canadian to claim sovereignty on the arctic.

The Inuit have lived above the tree line for as long as there have been Inuit. The people relocated by the Canadian government mostly came from Inukjuak, which is north of the tree line.

To be honest, a big problem is racism against aboriginal populations in Canada. I remember once when I was in high school, this guy told me he thought it was great we killed off the Beothuk so they wouldn't be mooching off of us now. And this guy teaches history and social justice in high school now. With Newfoundland and Labrador, both places have issues with shipping and to some extent food cost, but access to clear roads for Newfoundland communities are considered a priority, meanwhile people forget there's more to the province than the island part and the food costs are absolutely frightening in some Labrador communities.

We can solve global warming by simply turning our air conditioners around so they're facing outside.

I like to use my brain when I think, personally :P

It's also bullshiitake because he's not responding to any of the valid, fact based arguments; he's picking and choosing what he answers while pretending that his glib nonsense is some sort of rational response. It's trolling.

What if we just strap the Inuit to the birds flying south for the winter? Then they can just stay wherever the birds land!


Lots of birds fly to Florida. Enough Canadians spend their winters in Florida already.
