The Cree Walkers completed the Journey of Nishiyuu in support of the Idle No More movement and aboriginal issues. In January six youths and one guide left Whapmagoostui and walked 1600 kilometers, their numbers swelling to 400, to arrive in Ottawa today. They were welcomed warmly by thousands of people on Parliament Hill.
Meanwhile two very expensive giant pandas arrived in Toronto and were welcomed by Prime Minister Harper.
I find this somehow extremely embarrassing.
