Further to my Boxing Day Bash post below, Dec. 26 at noon a round dance/flash mob is going to be held on the F.W. Hill Mall as part of the Idle No More protest movement against the recent passage of the omnibus Bill C-45 by the Haper government in Ottawa that radically reduces environmental protection for federal waterways in Canada while also introducing changes to land management on First Nations reserves through the Indian Act.

Here’s some background courtesy of a First Perspective article that also discusses a hunger strike that Attawapiskat chief Theresa Spence has undertaken to demonstrate the extent of First Nations’ concern about Bill C-45 and to push for a meeting between First Nations leaders and the Conservative government.
