I keep hearing people, who are possibly descendents of aboriginals, on the news saying that they "own Canada".

I would just like to put out my response: "Hey buddy, you don't own crap."

Thank-you.

Making "claims" on land that goes back centuries is an endless game;

It isn't even true. At least it isn't true if you mean native people had a concept of 'ownership', and applied it to land. They didn't -- they were almost all hunters and gatherers who, at best, ranged over a territory without creating permanent settlements. At most there were agreements amongst lineages about who gets to hunt and gather where.

There are exceptions, but the big noise-makers are natives claiming to represent the Six Nations. Legally, these people are immigrants to this country, just like the rest of us, and hold their lands through a grant from the Queen, rather than through aboriginal title.

Our authorities make no distinctions.
