Should all colonialists just leave Canada?

I'm thinking of leaving Canada to move to my wife's country of Singapore.  They have a slogan there... "one people, one nation, one singapore" and that is the kind of country I want to live in.  Here, even though I'm born in Canada, I feel like first nations have way more rights and benefits than me.  I feel like a second rate person in this country, like I am one of the temporary workers in UAE that just works for the rich first nations people.  Should all people who don't have status cards just leave Canada to countries where they can feel like real citizens, not second rate, non-status people?

Newby..

 I try to be interested in everything. (If you don't take an interest, it may come back to bite you in the ass!)

 I'm currently wondering if Feminism, Unions, & the Left in general can survive the towering current of ignorance flowing through all aspects of our lives these days.

 The near total lack of interesting thoughtful media really distresses me. The pandering of news media to the lowest common denominator & the change to 'Opinion Journalism' in the U.S. is frightening!

 O.K.... In my day to day life, I spend a lot of time with my adult daughter, & my Mom. My hubby passed away 6 years ago this month. My Mom is handicapped & 96 years old.

Salaries for FN leaders and bureaucrats debate in the media

So i'm sure we've all been reading the media stories of how FN politicians are overpaid, just wondering what babblers thoughts are.

the fact that it is not just the salary paid by the band but any income even from other jobs like owning a business that is included, vs for the canadian politicians it appears to be only the salary paid for government work that is being compared, seems incredibly suspect.
