The Oka Crisis: Colonialism in the late 20th Century

I feel it necessary and appropriate, in light of the recent pipeline negotiations, to honor the 20th anniversary of the Oka Crisis in Quebec, and to draw attention to the fact that colonialism is not our historical legacy, but a continuing process in Canada.  I’d like to recommend the following documentary on The Oka Crisis. If you can’t commit to the time to watching it, or if you’d like more background, you can learn more on Wikipedia.
