OTTAWA - Aboriginal leaders were physically blocked from entering the House of Commons Tuesday where they wanted to push for a voice on the government's omnibus budget bill.

Following a rally on Parliament Hill, dozens of aboriginal leaders walked into the Commons and spoke directly to Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver.

Oliver was asked to speak to First Nations by NDP MP Charlie Angus.
