Next Fort St. John Idle No More rally on Monday

Much like the first rally, this one will begin again at the Treaty 8 office on 100 Avenue with an information session to go over the basics of the Idle No More movement. The presentation will also include response from politicians to local protests. Once again there will also be opportunities to write letters to MP Bob Zimmer, and the group will then march to Zimmer's office to deliver them, and rally outside.

January 28 also marks a day of solidarity for the movement across the country, with rallies planned for several other Canadian cities.
 
The Idle No More movement has swept the nation over the past two months, to raise awareness of issues Aboriginal people face and demanding changes from the federal government. Among the group's issues with Bill C-45 are that it removes protection from the majority of lakes and rivers in the country, and it fast-tracks the process to surrender reserve lands.
