On a sunny afternoon, the south lawn at Queen’s Park was transformed into an open-air restaurant. A long, narrow table with 11 place settings was covered with a white tablecloth.
Invited guests included Premier McGuinty and Kathleen Wynne, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, several Liberal cabinet ministers and Sarah Campbell, NDP Critic for Natural Resources and Aboriginal Affairs.
Grassy Narrows mothers had urged the Premier and his colleagues to join them and their families at noon for a traditional fish fry of their local fish cooked on an open wood fire.
The head waiter wore a white shirt with a black tie, black pants and a white apron around his waist.
The mood was festive. Traditional drumming. Children playing.
