Idle No More leader Erica Lee defends Paris conference picture - Saskatoon - CBC News


Idle No More leader Erica Lee defends Paris conference picture - Saskatoon - CBC News: "When I stuck out my tongue, it was an expression of the frustration I felt at that moment," she said. "And realizing that there were so many things that I wanted to say to Brad Wall. Being an Idle No More organizer, being an indigenous organizer at home, and never before having the luxury of having a platform or having time to speak with the premier, about any of my concerns."

Ultimately, Lee would like to use the incident to speak to the Premier about environmental issues.

"Honestly, when I posted that photo, I had no idea it would be such a big attention-getter," she said. "I think I would like to use it to move forward and maybe invite Premier Wall to come to Saskatoon, come to inner-city Saskatoon, and talk to some activists who have been working in these communities for decades."
