    A right to education does not mean education is available to all.

    And perhaps you should check your grammar before criticizing others.....
    Just a suggestion.

    How is education not available to all? It is pretty sad when a person wants to participate in a protest and can not even get the correct spelling of what they are protesting. It does say a lot!

    I bet the Beothuk Indians of Newfoundland wish they could have an education.

    I bet the citizens of Sault ste. Marie would like to go about their business without being inconvience because of this protest. Taxpayers would have liked to not foot the bill for the extra officers needed to ensure a peaceful protest. Which they should have been doing something more useful. Wasted taxpayers dollars. But those protesters didnt have to worry about putting a cent towards it.

    We ALL have a free education up to Grade 12. Those who are "put out" really need to look into just what exactly it is that the Idle No More protest is about. If you actually know what it's about you would support it, it's not just about Native Rights, it's about rights as Canadians. Sadly too many "Canadians" have their blinders on.

    Wrong. Read a lot about it and I don't support it.

    I am sorry but I find it hard to take a protestor seriously when they have a homemade sign with spelling mistakes on it. That picture just says it all! I really don't believe they are protesting on behalf of ALL Canadians - they are out for themselves.

    A bit snobbish to assume that someone who can't spell isn't worth listening to... or to assume that that one person (who could be dyslexic for all you know) represents every protester in the 'Idle No More' Movement.

    Aside from that nobody protests on behalf of 'all Canadians'. Everyone has an agenda & an opinion different from others. I think in this case, The 'Idle No More' movement is stating that what they are protesting affects all walks of life, not just First Nation Concerns, and people should pay attention. I think they are right on this one. Feel free to disagree. Too many people in this country sit back and just 'trust' the government to do what is 'right'. What Bill C-45 represents is not in anyway 'right' for Canadians.

    protesting on behalf of CAnadians?? serious ??? I saw very few Maple Leafs on any of those flags they were waving, And the few that were waving were defaced with writing on them. Real representation of all Canadians. I guess the reason there were few 'non-natives' in attendance is because they were busy at WORK.

    Education to grade 12 isn't free. I pay a school tax levy with my property tax every year. (No kids in school for years either)

    I don't think Gene would approve of your incessant whining. Oh, and you don't speak on behalf of any Canadians, only yourself.

    Attacking the spelling, attacking a member for their opinion. What's the difference?
