Decolonize the New Indian Agent: Bernard Valcourt
Meet the new face of federal power tasked with managing “the Indian Problem”. We couldn’t cover up those eyes…we needed you to see his particular wild, drunken glare of Conservative crazy first.
Valcourt steps into his new role of Aboriginal Affairs minister, filling the disgraced shoes of former AANDC Minister John Duncam, with the appropriate Harper credentials:
Because we all know right wing militants and the Armed Forces are the only way Settler Colonial states know how to deal with Indigenous issues.
Expect even less negotiating and more strong-arm PC tactics to force native complicity and consent.

A FANTASY IS NOT A PROMISSORY NOTE, CASHABLE IN THE BANK OF THE REAL
“Let’s invent a word so haunted, so transformational–so transitional–that the moment you type it your soul is sucked through it & into communication with & exile from everything. “Everything” being the truth about the world, in the sense that it is the world. “The truth about the world” being that it’s everything in the world–& though you were always in the world, now you are in there with it, which is a different matter altogether. It is not a truth you wanted to know, this quality of the world being able to lie alongside itself & yet remain a single thing. But you spoke the word. You turned the key.”
