Canadian Bigot

I have not meet a single Indian [first nations citizen] whom I consider to have attained even the most glimmering perception of the Christian creed.

~ Joseph Trutch (1826-01-18 1904-03-04 age:78) Chief Commissioner of Land and Works for British Columbia

This lack of Christianity he used to justify confiscating 91% of the land formerly granted by treaty to the indigenous people of BC. To my city, Victoria’s shame, we have a street named after this bigot, as does Vancouver.
