#13 BLS- Occupying Cannon's Office

On June 26, 2008 Algonquins from Barriere lake and several supporters from the Montreal-based Barriere Lake Solidarity Collective peacefully occupied Lawrence Cannon's constituency office. Demonstrators demanded a meeting with Cannon and asked him to use his power to ensure that Indian Affairs upholds the law and oversees a leadership re-selection in their community.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
