Disrespect seems to come naturally for Nathan Cullen these days, at least when the cameras are turned off and the mikes are pointed the others way, when we hear this we have to wonder just how much contempt does Nathan have for our indigenous people? In this video Nathan thinks he is off camera, and is heard making very rude comments about a indigenous Liberal candidate in the electoral district of North Coast, currently held by the NDP candidate Jennifer Rice. Nathan mocks Roy Jones Jr for the nickname Kinkles that was given by a Japanese lady from QCC when he was a kid. She told him it meant “golden boy”
This very hurtful comment is now being realized by close family members, a lesson in how brutal words with the intent to harm, can be.
Below is a clipping from the debate in Smithers that was posted by the Interior News on Facebook. The only decent thing Nathan should do now is apologize and resign, step out of politics, and Horgan likewise should be removing Nathan from the NDP and replacing him with Annita McPhee.
This from a man who just posted the following.
Followed by a reply from Darcy Repen who is also a candidate in the Stikine Riding.
The following comes from a new rising star Chris Sankey who is quickly becoming a well noticed aboriginal voice, if this man gets into politics, look out, he will be a voice to be reckoned with.
The following was found on LinkedIn

Listen to Nathan Cullen. The person that everybody thinks has class and respect for Indigenous people. Listen as he belittles Roy Jones Jr. The Haida Liberal candidate for north coast riding. Cullen didn’t realize the Mic was on.
That was classless, Nathan. This clearly shows you’re all about division in our communities. I can imagine what you say about us with your non Indigenous friends when we are not present. Your actions, whether people see it or not, continue to hurt our families and communities. You have the uncanny ability to use the system against us by keeping us divided all the while pretending your the Indigenous friend.
I know Roy. He’s a good person. He wants what’s best for all people, especially his people. We all have differences in our communities, but for you, an outsider, a person who preaches that colonialism is killing our communities, but here you are, the very thing you claim to be against. And to make fun of one of our own when he’s not there to defend himself is low.
Our nation’s may have differences, but we stand up for each other no matter what. By the way its our people who give us our nicknames
I lost all respect for you
