Seven tents have popped up along Albert Street as a protest in front of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada offices moves into a new phase.

Robyn Pitawanakwat, organizer, said she and others are prepared for the long haul.

“We started off with a protest on Friday because we wanted to bring attention to the issues that are happening in a lot of First Nations communities across Canada — the mental health crisis, the water issues, the housing issues,” she said Monday. “So today, we are trying to bring more attention because (the previous protest) really didn’t seem to do anything.”
