Pueblos en Camino support Idle No More!

As Pueblos En Camino, we urge Prime Minister Harper to meet with Chief Theresa Spence, who is currently on a hunger strike in protest of ongoing poor conditions and to re-establish a meaningful, nation-to-nation relationship between the Federal Government and First Nation people, a relationship that should be the basis of Canadian government and First Nation relations. We also stand alongside the many groups who reject the omnibus legislative changes contained in bill C-45, including the deplorable set backs related to treaty rights for Indigenous people and protection of lake and rivers in the country, among others. We join the growing voices across Canada and the world urging Prime Minister Harper to meet with Chief Spence and work towards a more equitable and respectful relationship with First Nation people.
