 I got home too late, yesterday, to watch the news. I did catch the 
Canadian equivalent of CNN's headline news, which mentioned 
something about 'Indian affairs'. I don't remember what, but I didn't 
get that impression that it was anything other than the usual 
colonialist rhetoric. ANd I don't see anything mentioned about the 
Indian Act in the Toronto Star (the most liberal of the Canadian 
papers), so I assume it will be business as usual. 

APTN news (Aboriginal People's Television Network) should have a 
report about  this throne speech tonight. I'll check it out, and let 
you know what I hear.
