‘Teachers Federation Goes Off The Rails’

‘British Columbia Teachers Federation letter to illegal anti-pipeline Unist’ot’en camp’

Here is the foolish and unprofessional British Columbia Teachers Federation talking about theirethical imperative to decolonize. Since that would mean ending the ‘colonialist’ school system, can we assume that B.C. teachers are planning to resign en masse and pursue other occupations? This would be an obvious conclusion to draw from this ridiculous virtue signalling.

One would also assume that teachers who own homes and land are now willing to turn over title and pay rent to aboriginals for occupying theirunceded territories.

Doesthe Federation is in the early stages of decolonizing our thinking and processesindicate that the ‘colonialist’ union plans to decertify?

On another matter, is the union pursuing the installation of wood stoves in B.C. schools, considering their opposition tothe deleterious effects of the fossil fuel industry on our environment, our waterways, and our coast lines? Oh, wait…that would make ‘climate change’ worse by increasing CO2… I guess it’s going to have to be coats and gloves in class during the winter.

Can we also assume that teachers will no longer be parking internal combustion vehicles on school property? Are they expanding the number of bicycle racks for teachers to use?

And can we expect all union officials to set an example by also now complying with all of the above?

“From the B.C. Teachers Federation:

‘Solidarity with the hereditary chiefs and Wet’suwet’en people’

“That the BCTF support and stand in solidarity with the hereditary chiefs and Wet’suwet’en people in respecting sovereignty over their land.

‘Public actions on climate change’
“That the Federation encourage members to attend major public actions such as marches, rallies, and demonstrations organized by groups that are geared toward raising awareness about climate change, global warming, and the deleterious impacts of the fossil fuel industry on the environment, our waterways, and our coast lines.

“First, we acknowledge those before us who brought forward resolutions to protect the land, water, animals, and the places we live, work, and play. We do this on all the unceded territories across British Columbia.

“We are using the BCTF ‘Aboriginal Lens’ to frame our perspective as an organization and to balance the needs of the membership with the ethical imperative to decolonize. The ‘Aboriginal Lens’ includes the following seven elements: respect, relationship-building, relevance, responsibility, reciprocity, reconciliation, and resilience. As an organization representing 43,000 members, it is important to be informed about multiple knowledge systems, diverse cultures, and perspectives.

“The BCTF is aware of the complex colonial history we have all inherited, and we are mindful of the fact that the Federation is in the early stages of decolonizing our thinking and processes. We also believe that every member is on their own individual journey and at various stages of learning and understanding.

“The BCTF has adopted the ‘Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action’, and the ‘United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People’ provides us with a compass to do no harm and collectively mitigate the legacy of Canada’s attempted genocide of Aboriginal people. We have worked tirelessly with the ‘BCTF Aboriginal Education Advisory Committee’ and the ‘BCTF Aboriginal Education Association’ to recognize, interrupt, and decolonize our collective history.

“We work in partnership with the ‘First Nations’ Education Steering Committee’ and other provincial education organizations to improve Aboriginal students’ experiences and success in school. Recently, the BCTF was a signatory to a renewed protocol with ‘First Nations’ leadership in BC, along with all of the other affiliates of the BCFED.

“We believe that it is in everyone’s interest to protect the environment and work together in taking the lead from local ‘First Nations’. We encourage you to…act on your positions of influence as teachers and community members by attending public information sessions, teach-ins, marches, rallies, and other events that raise awareness of the devastating impacts of climate change and fossil fuel extraction. This will help put collective, province-wide action behind the recent decisions of the Representative Assembly.”

Education: Honouring the Ignorance of Our Ancestors‘ (Widdowson) {January 27, 2014}:
“The British Columbia government has adopted the position that science itself is only “provisional” and a ‘Eurocentric’ cultural viewpoint:
“…We are aware that our scientific knowledge is provisional and culturally-derived.”
“This is part of the new “aboriginal perspectives” that now undermine the education of all B.C. children. So, the next time you witness the effects of gravity, remember — it’s only your “cultural perspective” that makes it seem that way…”

Practicing Magic In School’ (Smudging In B.C.) {November 18, 2016}:
“British Columbia law is very clear in not allowing ANY religious ceremonies in public schools. In what is becoming an all-too-prevalent double standard, this doesn’t seem to apply to aboriginal religious ceremonies.”
