Saskatchewan's Children's Advocate is joining the national debate on aboriginal issues.

Bob Pringle has released a statement calling on Stephen Harper's government to sit down with First Nations leaders.

He also says it's important for the Prime Minister to visit aboriginal communities and speak with children.

He says the Idle No More protests across the country in the last two weeks should galvanize everyone to be better role models for young people.
