NDP use tactictal trick to force debate on murdered, missing aboriginal women


The NDP has used a tactical ploy to force a debate in the House of Commons about the need for an inquiry into murdered and missing aboriginal women.


The Opposition caught Conservatives by surprise, waiting until they had filed out of the House after the daily question period.


The NDP then rushed their own members back in and out-voted the remaining Tories to approve the debate.


Romeo Saganash, an NDP member from northern Quebec region, has told the House that aboriginal women are much more likely to be victims of violence than non-native women.


Saganash says an inquiry is needed to get to root causes.


Conservative Susan Truppe defended the government’s record on murdered and missing aboriginal women.



AMAZING.

This scene in Inglourious Bastards, this particular part, was so brilliantly written. The characters are playing a game where you sit in a circle and write a famous person’s name on a card, flip it over, pass the card to the person next to you and stick it to your head without looking. Then you ask everyone questions to figure out who it is. This man- a Nazi commander- asked “Am I American?” (no but..) “Have I visited America?” (yes) “Was my visit fruitious?” (no) “Did I go against my will?” (yes) “Am I from a place you’d call exotic?” (yes) “Am I from the jungle?” (yes) “Did I go by boat?” (yes) “And when I got there was I bound with chains and presented in front of a crowd?” (yes!) “Well then. I know who I am. An African slave. No? Oh then I’m King Kong.” — and in one instance the viewer realizes the metaphor which King Kong was to the African slave trade (a truly Tarantino way of inserting social awareness through dialogue spoken by social oppressors) as well as takes a moment of almost comic relief to a very strange middle ground since we see just how intelligent and foolproof this man is. This is good filmmaking.
