Buffy Sainte-Marie has been a great spokesperson
for First Nations peoples for decades now.
The 'Idle No More' movement here in Canada
is getting a lot of attention lately. And rightly so.
The plight of indigenous people in Canada has been
desperate for so long that I am ashamed that our
governments, now and in the past (both Conservative
and Liberal), consistently decide to 'turn a blind eye'
and choose to provide 'lip service' only.
I think the time has come that it is no longer acceptable
to watch young kids take their lives because
they cannot see any good reason to live because of the
desperate living conditions around them.
