Time for Ottawa to embrace Idle No More

Idle No More may have fizzled, but it hasn’t gone and it isn’t going away.

Idle No More gives voice to that sense of pride combined with anger, and it is multifarious. There isn’t a single and easy top priority. They are kind of like the Parliament of Canada, which rarely speaks with one voice, and with five political parties, has at least five perspectives on any public policy issue. And if MPs really could speak their minds and had free votes we would see a lot more than five perspectives.Photograph by Steve Gerecke, The Hill Times
