Art on the move: Train of Thought explores treaties and decolonization in cities across Canada

Photos: Liam Coo Jumblies Theater (used with permission)

Train of Thought, an artistic journey across Canada consisting of Indigenous and non-Indigenous voices, pulled into Toronto last week. 

On Wednesday, I found myself sitting cross-legged in Ange Loft's workshop -- described as 'quick theatre creation using audio' in the program.

I had my brown sheet of paper in front of me and my blue oil pastel in hand, ready to be inspired by the interview with Lee Maracle playing on the speakers.

The interviewer asked Maracle how she felt about treaties.

"It's sort of like this," Maracle begins. "You had a house, and the neighbour moves into your house. Pretty soon he kicks you out. It's still your house, and you will always believe it's your house."

How Chris Lloyd fooled the entire Conservative party

Chris Lloyd's thumbs-up shot with Harper has gone viral since the Conservatives found out his candidacy for MP was part of an art project.

Art and life: Papineau's ex-Conservative MP candidate on why he fooled the Tories

Chris Lloyd's thumbs-up shot with Stephen Harper has been making rounds on the Internet, ever since the Conservative party asked him to resign when they found out his candidacy for MP in the Papineau riding was part of an art project.

His bid for office was short-lived -- his Conservative candidacy ended before the 2015 federal election was even called -- but his art project has something to say about the strata that separate politicians and people in Canada.

He has been working on his project, Dear PM, since 1998 when he was a student at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
