Idle No More protesters disappointed Senator Brazeau facing charges

Idle No More protesters outside a Burnaby hotel where Prime Minister Stephen Harper spent the Friday say like him, they feel let down by Patrick Brazeau, a First Nations Senator now charged with assault and sexual assault.

“Stephen Harper’s got to go, hey, hey, ho, ho,” they chanted.

A handful of demonstrators say they were disappointed to learn Brazeau , who is Canada’s youngest senator, is accused of violence.

“It’s very upsetting for sure.”

 Lorelei Williams says she’s spent time with Brazeau, who’s been critical of the Idle No More Movement and recently joked about Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence’s weight.  Spence spent months on a hunger protest, helping spark the movement.

“Actually, I wanted to call on Senator Brazeau. He’s not being with us. He’s not being with his people.”

Brazeau was appointed to the Senate in 2008.
