Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who ended her 44-day protest in Ottawa on Thursday, is calling on First Nations leaders and federal opposition parties to take up her fight to push the feds to implement treaty rights.
Spence agreed to end efforts at Victoria Island after aboriginal organizations - including the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) - and the NDP and Liberals signed on a 13-point action plan drafted over the weekend, according to her spokesman Danny Metatawabin.
Spence was also facing pressure from her own band council to return home.
