Misinformation about subsidy to First Nations fuels backlash

The media is full of images of the First Nations movement that is sweeping the country. Yet the articles that accompany the pictures do little to explain what people want or why they are protesting. Dru Oja Jay is a writer and journalist. He is the author of the recent article What if Natives Stop Subsidizing Canada that appeared on the Media Coop. He speaks with Redeye host Mordecai Briemberg.
