PM Trudeau -Leadership in Action?

Pictures, edit + slideshow to follow!



What was Toronto's big news story last night? As far as the mainstream media is concerned? It was downtown at the Air Canada Centre. The Toronto Raptors defeated the Indiana Pacers 98 to 87. While a far, bigger, more significant political and social justice story went largely unreported further north in our city! 

At 6:30 pm a huge flash mob gathered out front of the Attawapiskat INAC occupation at 25 St. Clare Ave just east of Yonge. Hundreds of Torontonians joined in solidarity with Attawapiskat and First Nation youth, spilling out onto the street as traffic in all directions ground to a halt. Local progressives of all ages, backgrounds and race joined together forming a huge circle of solidarity as drummers beat out a mad tattoo in the middle of the street. 



The demands? You'll find more info and links about the Attawapiskat INAC occupation on my last blog below. Monday night's "flash mob" protest was more specific. It was the first large Justin Trudeau protest in Toronto, signalling that yes Mr. Prime Minister -the honeymoon is over!

Concerned, caring Canadians know that actions speak louder than money and words! As do Attawapiskat youth! They simply want Justin, who is also our self declared Minister of Youth, to personally come to Attawapiskat to meet with them. They want to directly discuss the disturbing rash of First Nation youth suicidal attempts first hand with our new "leader"! And they need to do it now! 

Have you followed Mr. Trudeau's schedule for the past few days? He's attended the funeral of a former Liberal cabinet minister, met with firefighters, and spoke about prostrate cancer. Sent his minister, officials and health care workers to Attawapiskat! instead!


All that's important in different ways, to varying degrees. But are they as pressing and important as the immediate leadership needs of our indigenous youth, in the middle of a mass suicide crisis?!? Whom so badly need to see some real, caring leadership with that personal touch for which Justin has so greatly touched Canadians and become so well known? Now, during their hour of desperate need! As the crisis continues unabated!

Please show us that your charisma is not all form and no content Mr. Trudeau! Go to Attawapiskat now! Speak directly with our First Nation youth -they are calling out for you! Consider it a test of real, personal leadership! For a country that's been lacking any leadership for far too long! Especially for our First Nation youth, who through no fault of their own, so desperately need you now!

In Solidarity with First Nation Youth!
