Nearly 100 people sang and danced in a flash mob round dance at West Edmonton Mall on Wednesday afternoon, the latest action in the Idle No More movement.
 It’s a short limo drive, maybe five minutes, from Parliament Hill to Victoria Island in the middle of the Ottawa River. Heck, you could walk it in 10. So would it kill Stephen Harper to get out of his office and go meet the chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation who is staging a hunger strike on the island to get attention for her community’s plight?Mail
Chief Theresa Spence of the remote Attawapiskat First Nation launched her protest with a vow to “die” unless the Conservative government starts showing more respect to First Nations concerns and aboriginal treaties.
