Sarah Scanlon (right), co-ordinator of organizational policy and development with Ontario Public Interest Research Group – Guelph (OPIRG), reads a list of suggestions for how to get involved in the Idle No More movement to a group of supporters at the U of G. Around 20 people braved wet weather to take part in the “Solidarity Rally” Friday. The ralliers were showing their support for First Nations peoples, who began the Idle No More movement in response to Bill C-45, the government’s omnibus budget bill. The bill potentially impacts First Nations treaty rights. The U of G rally was the first of several local events in support of the movement. Two more events took place downtown on Friday and Saturday afternoons.
