Regarding Manitoba Justice Murray Sinclair, who was chair of the commission, Marantz wrote that “six years is a long time to be herding fat cats.”
As for the rest of Canada’s aboriginal leaders, Marantz wrote that they are “too busy feathering their own headdresses to worry about trivialities like chronic unemployment, poverty, illness, alcoholism and crime.”
Marantz predicted in the article that people would be living on Mars by the time the commission’s recommendations are enacted, calling it the “Half Truth and Recrimination Report.”
He goes on to draw parallels between the “obsession” the aboriginal community has with residential schools to the Jewish community’s connection to the Holocaust.
“But Auschwitz was not a retraining camp,” he wrote.
