5484...Chief Spence's Cleanse Er Hunger Strike

Has garnered success.  Chief Spence who, like a two year old in the cookie aisle at Wal-Mart, took a tantrum when she didn't get her way, got her way.

The Chief has been on a total hunger strike for over three weeks, excepting of course broth.  And, if it wasn't mean to say this I would, from the looks of her, she may have snuck in a couple of Happy Meals.  Every day.

The goal of this national hissy fit is/was to get a meeting with the man himself, our beloved Prime Minister, Stephen Harper.  This, CBC News reports, she has achieved.  "Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence says she will join a 'working meeting' between Prime Minister Stephen Harper and a delegation of First Nations chiefs but will not yet end a hunger strike that is now in its 25th day."

Let me translate:  She got her way but still wants to continue her, uh, hunger strike until something something happens.



  1. You sound much like Lorne Gunter, Ezra Levant .. with the Happy Meals insult - dog whistle ...
