Idle No More: A Response By People Who Feel Like Hostages In Their Own Country

2013/02/06

If you’re looking for some more information on the IdleNoMore campaign, MP Charlie Angus (Timmins-James Bay) gives a good summary in this video. He is discussing the NDP Opposition Day motion on dealing with First Nation economic development and treaty rights. The response from the CPC MP, Cheryl Gallant, who represents a more southerly Ontario riding, is telling. In essence, she says that all First Nations need is more control over businesses on their reserves, and their problems will be solved; typical neoconservative BS, in other words. Angus’s response is restrained, considering what he could have said.

    Thanks for posting this, such refreshing clarity. The government response is venal.

      Yes, I agree, Mr. Angus is a parliamentarian Canadians can be proud of – something we can’t say about all of our MPs!
