I’d hate to see Chief Spence die – even if it’s at her own hand, but there’s an Aboriginal Affairs minister for a reason. If I wanted the Quebec government’s time for a meeting, I’d approach JF Lisée, not starve myself on the Plains of Abraham until Pauline Marois capitulated.

Stephen Harper would be setting an absurd precedent meeting with Spence now. He can’t and shouldn’t do it.
