Genocide, missing women and hauling water: What the spin doctors don't want you to know

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News


The public relations spin doctors and their counterparts in the media don't want you to know about genocide. They want to protect Canada and the churches from the facts: They are responsible for the torture and murder of Native children.

The public relations spin doctors don't want you to know about the man camps and pipeline workers that drug and rape young girls. They don't want you to know the desperation in Indian country when a loved one goes missing. They don't want you to know that there is money sitting in bank accounts that could be spent to meet the desperate needs for food and water in Indian country.

The spin doctors want you to believe that all is going well, that the government leaders are doing well, and he priests and churches would never do that.
