‘The reason why we’re here and had to take this drastic measure was to wake people up. It’s up to the people in the end.’ – Shelly Young. Day 10 of water fast. Indian Brook First Nation voted March 5 to pull out of the ‘Mi’kmaq Rights Initiative’. Young, and supporters say the federal-provincial initiative will strip away existing treaty rights and that the Chiefs partaking have not obtained proper consent from their people.
