Idle No More Guelph debut

The Idle No More movement is coming to Guelph.
An “Idle No More – Guelph” rally and conversation will be held Saturday Jan. 12 at 2:30 p.m. at 10 Carden St.
In a spirit of solidarity and respect, participants will discuss Bill C-45 and the prioritizing of resource extraction over environment protections, native treaties, food and water protections in Canada, organizer James Gordon said in an email about the event.
“These issues are being brought into focus by Chief Spence in Ottawa,” he said.
Gordon, a local musician and activist will speak at the event, along with spokespeople from the native and Métis communities and local MP Frank Valeriote.
Jan Sherman will lead a drumming circle at 4 p.m. outside following the discussion. Other groups supporting the event include the Council of Canadians, Guelph Wellington Coalition for Social Justice, OPIRG, Transition Guelph and the Grand River Métis Council.
