‘Idle’ provides Canadians a vision of a better world
To the Editor,
Re: Idle No More stokes the fire, Opinion, Feb. 2.
Idle No More’s purpose is to keep everyone’s attention on issues that have been ignored for too long.
It is the grassroots speaking to First Nations leaders, all levels of Canadian government and corporations and is not to be dismissed as ineffective.
At last, they create the venue for indigenous people to have a voice. Moreover, it is uniting people, both within their own communities, their various cultures and with the broader segment of society.
Idle No More provides a vision of what we all want in a better world – care for our environment and each other.
I encourage open-minded people to stand in at least one event and experience the intent and atmosphere.
To support Idle No More is to have a voice in what is happening in our country.
