The Hunger for Justice

Harper and the Governor General don’t offer a spoonful of respect, let alone justice.

Attawapiskat Chief Spence reissues call for PM, GG treaty meeting

I wish our Prime Minister and Governor General cared enough about the self-imposed suffering of a brave First Nations leader, to meet with her for an hour at least. We probably can’t, as a nation, expect the Prime Minister, or Queen’s representative to meet with just any old person holding a hunger strike — but Spence isn’t just any old person.

The Conservatives’ leadership seems to be without redemption. Imagine their further plunge in the polls* if they allow a woman to starve on the steps of Parliament.

The faces in these protests won’t be smiling quite as often.

*(Which Canadian gives a damn about polls, other than political wonks and manipulators?)
