Share your questions for Idle No More

  • Print

Winnipeg Free Press reporter Alex Paul will sit down later this week with Tanya Kappo, one of the main spokeswomen for the Idle No More movement in Canada.

Do you have a question for the Idle No More organizers?  Post your suggested questions in the comments section below. Paul will pose a selection of your questions to Kappo; watch for them in her "In Conversation" piece later this week.

Here are a few of the questions Paul plans to include:

  • Idle No More is committed to peaceful change and you’re branding the movement that way, with events such as flash-mob round dances. But there have been other events that have not engendered public support, such as rail and highway blockades. What's your opinion of these events?
  • Is Idle No More "just" an aboriginal issue, or is there a broader scope to the movement? Why should non-aboriginal Canadians take up your cause?
  • Now that you have built up a sizable momentum, where does the movement go from here?

Kappo, daughter of Harold Cardinal -- the Cree leader who penned the response to the 1969 White Paper -- is a University of Manitoba articling law student and a longtime activist for peaceful change.  She was the first to use the hashtag #idlenomore on Twitter.
