SARNIA, Ont. -- A blockade of a CN rail spur line continued into Boxing Day at Aamjiwnaang First Nation in support of the national Idle No More movement.
Spokesmann Ron Plain said protesters have vowed to maintain the blockade that began Friday.
“We’re getting support from way outside the community,” he said. “We have non-native people that none of us know, they drove up on Christmas Day and gave us Christmas presents."
