Sometimes I forget that Canada is a massive country where people are separated into silos.
Idle No More has reminded me that there exists massive gulfs between people, experiences and awareness.
I don’t actually fault the folks who aren’t aware of their ignorance. After an aggressive social media campaign, flash mobs, rallies, blockades, coordinated actions, letters of support from national unions and a hunger strike, the media coverage has still been significantly lacking.
How can someone know what’s going on if none of their friends are talking about it? How can they talk about it if there’s an effective media blackout?
