Idle No More - A Little Education - Outside The Box

Idle No More – A Little Education

Last week I was browsing Facebook when I came across a post by a “friend” of mine.  It was in response to the Idle No More movement and said “Here’s an idea.  Burn the treaties and get a job…”  I was immediately disgusted and perplexed by this.  His statement had absolutely no relevance to the goals of the Idle No More mission.  It was obvious this was someone who is not only racist but really has no understanding of what Idle No More is about.

I’m assuming there are many people out there who don’t really know what this movement is about.  We hear things on the radio or see blurbs on TV but we can’t always keep up with every call to action, every protest and cause that is going on.

So, if you’ve heard about Idle No More but haven’t really had a chance to find out what it’s all about here is a little background for you.


Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth…

Plan of Action

Support and encourage grassroots to create their own forums to learn more about Indigenous rights and our responsibilities to our Nationhood via teach-ins, rallies and social media.

Build relationships and create understanding with allies across Canada…

Beef and Broccolini Stir Fry Wraps

Beef and Broccolini Stir Fry Wraps

I love finger foods. And a lot of kids, like mine, love finger foods. My kid also happens to love broccoli. She most definitely got the broccoli loving gene from her father. I am not a fan. However, we have found a compromise – Broccolini. Broccolini is a little sweeter and a while lot less bitter (in my opinion) than broccoli. If you aren’t familiar with broccolini it is a hybrid of broccoli and Chinese kale. I have a huge dislike for both broccoli and kale so I have no idea how a hybrid of the two is something I actually don’t mind at all. I chose to use it in this dish not only because I like it but also because it’s long delicate shape was far more suitable in a wrap than bulky ordinary broccoli. These stir fry wraps are incredibly easy and quick to make and I really love the texture of the slightly softer stir fried veggies with the crisp raw veggies. And the flavourful, yet not overpowering, Blue Dragon Broccoli Beef Stir Fry Sauce pulls everything together perfectly.

Get a large bowl of warm, but not hot, water. Soak a spring roll wrapper for about 20 seconds. Set on the counter for another 20 seconds until soft and pliable.

Spoon about 1/4 of the stir fry from the pan onto one side of the wrapper. Add a few strips of cucumber and carrot and a few sprouts. Roll into a wrap.

Serve immediately.
