Idle No More movement gains momentum in B.C.
The Idle No More movement is gaining momentum in First Nations communities across Canada.
The movement began with four women in Saskatchewan, to raise awareness about the latest Omnibus budget: Bill C-45
The bill includes changes to the Indian Act that make it easier for aboriginal people to sell land to non-First Nations.
It also changes the Navigable Waters Act, which removes thousands of lakes and streams from federal protection.
Friday, a big rally took place in Ottawa with support rallies throughout the country.
Lisa Luscombe is one of the organizers of the Cranbrook rally.
