#Idenomore Chief Spence can be forgiven if she needs the prime minister’s ear for a few moments. How can there be $28 million to market an ancient war and no money to provide clean drinking water for aboriginal communities? How can you set up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and then force it to go to court over access to crucial documents? How can there be $50 million for gazebos in Muskoka but not enough for basic housing in Attawapiskat? And how can Canada be the sixth most developed country in the world and our indigenous peoples sixty-sixth? No one should bet the farm that the prime minister will meet the chief. On the other hand, Stephen Harper should bear in mind that you can’t starve an idea — no, not even in Harperland.
