Parksville and area residents will get an opportunity to have a first-hand look at the issues of the Idle No More movement from an inside perspective, thanks to the Parksville-Qualicum branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women.
Linda Fullalove said her group is sponsoring an information session with high-profile First Nations speaker Kim Recalma-Clutesi, who she said will give her perspective on the movement — where it’s going and where it has been.
“We were impressed with her at the International Women’s Day video we showed and people wanted to know more about it, because she had a different perspective on issues for Aboriginal women,” she said. “We thought we wanted to know more about Idle No More.”
The free event will be held at the St. Columba Presbyterian Church Hall at 921 Wembley Road on Sunday, March 23 at 2 p.m.
