Thanks Cal for the link to the article by James Bradshaw and Shawn McCarthy. Kudos to the Idle No More movement and their supporter. About time the Harper and regional governments realized that they need to start listening to the First Nations. Read and noted.

I've been following this movement and have posted some articles on it. It sounds like the movement is getting a life of its own, and all participants should use caution, and listen to the leadership of the Assembly of First Nations. It is of paramount importance to respect the wishes of Chief Theresa Spence, who is putting her life on the line for her People. Thanks for the information on this, Cal.

So few to rise up against the massive ego. If we could not get them to listen then, and they are not listening now.

In my small town, when the idle no more were having a peaceful gathering, a woman that works in a coffee kiosk, called the natives :filthy animals and called the cops on them. Cops couldnt do anything because they werent doing anything wrong. Natives are boycotting the coffee place, except to ask for directions to tim hortons.
