Idle No More - Global Day of Action

Idle No More Theresa Spence.jpgToday marks a big day for First Nations across Canada. Aboriginal leaders are scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper even though Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence says she won't be there if the Governor General doesn't attend. Many have been protesting proposed federal government legislation that they say is an attack on aboriginal rights.

Island Morning's Pat Martel spoke to the two women about their rally, as well as the Idle No More movement.
