That America celebrates Columbus Day is why this country and Canada are both conflicted. How anyone can go somewhere, beat-up, kill, steal and install their own government is upsetting enough. To then portray yourself as the "sweet land of liberty" while those who are direct descendants of your plunder still suffer and not allowed a place at the table is further insulting. Perhaps the only thing more appalling is the celebration they call Thanksgiving. Natives both here and in Canada share a most common bond in knowing this history.
