(about the moderate livelihood fishery in nova scotia)
when native americans defend the land and the water from oil and gas companies destroying it, the police won't hesitate to violently attack us
but when hundreds of white terrorists destroy the property of native americans, set fire to our buildings, set fire to our vehicles, destroy our boats and lobster traps, and threaten to kill us, the police just stand around and watch
my people are just trying to fish a very small amount compared to how much the non-native commercial fishermen fish, so that we can make a moderate livelihood. we've been fishing long before the white people invaded, and we know how to do it sustainably. yet the commercial fishermen, these terrorists, claim they're violently protesting us in the name of "conservation."
and many stores now are even refusing to serve us, to serve native americans, because of the events going on
racism sits comfortably in canada, racism sits comfortably in nova scotia
Anybody order a cup a' me?

Heyo! if you don't know about my postcard fundraiser, here's the lowdown:

@starrieskies commented: wait...was there a collab between mario and conker? o_o
Alright, so this is a story: technically yes but there's some complexities to it.
Conker's Bad Fur Day was originally supposed to be Twelve Tales, and Twelve Tales was originally supposed to be a kid-friendly game! In fact, Conker's first appearance (in a game of his own) was another game called Conker's Pocket Tales, which was for the Game Boy Color and was a game meant for kids that was supposed to build up an audience for Twelve Tales. You wanna know how else Rare tried to build an audience for Twelve Tales prior to Pocket Tales? By putting Conker in Diddy Kong Racing! Rare also put in Banjo for that sweet, sweet advertising.
Of course, as Twelve Tales was supposed to be a kid friendly game, Conker was presented differently in DKR. In fact, you can think of the DKR Conker as Conker as a kid, when he was told by his parents not to swear, be greedy, drink, etc. (I got this from the Conker wiki). More interesting is that Diddy and Conker are said to be friends in that game! Another thing to point out is that DKR had a remake for the DS that did not have Conker or Banjo, but this can easily be stated as a consequence of copyright issues since Microsoft had by then bought Rare and therefore the rights to Conker and Banjo.
Now you may be wondering why did Twelve Tales become Bad Fur Day, then? The closest answer we have is that Rare faced criticism for the game being yet another "kiddy platformer," as was common in the 64 days. So Rare did a 180 and gave us Bad Fur Day. It's a bewildering development tale, to say the least. Most of the info here about how Conker came to be in DKR was from the Beta64 video for Bad Fur Day, so if you're interested, give that a watch.
So Diddy Kong and Conker at one point had a collab, so the Mario series as a whole did so as well.
OHHH that makes so much more sense!! i actually think i remember wondering why conker was in diddy kong racing when i was a kid.. thank you for explaining the premium behind-the-scenes Rare lore!!!
