Protests by Indigenous peoples a culmination of centuries of political abuse and neglect..

A recent poll found that a majority of Canadians favour police intervention to stop Indigenous protesters and activists from blocking railway services.

Are these anti-protesters unaware of the long and brutal mistreatment of Indigenous peoples that led up to these protests? Or do they simply not care about it?

In any case, perhaps a brief history lesson may be helpful, starting after the initial invasion of Canada by European settlers.
