Former PM calls Attawapiskat Chief ''an inspiration''
Former Prime Minister Paul Martin says Chief Theresa Spence is an inspiration to all Canadians.
Martin met with Spence at her camp on Ottawa's Victoria Island Saturday.
Martin told CTV's Question Period Sunday it was a good meeting & that he told Spence people are concerned about her health. The Attawapiskat Chief has gone without solid food for close to a month.
She's trying to lock down a meeting between First Nations leaders, Prime Minister Stephen Harper & d the Governor General to discuss the treaty relationship.
Friday, Harper agreed to meet with the leaders this week.
But Spence is keeping up her hunger strike at least until the meeting takes place.
