Chief Spence heads to hotel “to shower and nap” – Is that where she’s really been staying?


On CBC’s The National, Adrienne Arsenault tried her best to spin after catching Chief Theresa Spence leaving  for a hotel yesterday:

“She’s sworn off solid foods but she’s far from allowing herself to being trapped on the island” –

Audio asking Spence:

“Just going to have a shower and a little lie down?” (see here 2:20 mark)

No questions about how much time Spence is really spending on the island in the tipi that we have been told many, many times  by the media she is staying (see here) nor does Arsenault follow her to see which hotel she went to and interview the hotel staff to find out how often they see her like a real investigative reporter would do.

The Media Party have their anti-Harper hero and are not going to do anything to ruin it.

    Paid for by TAXPAYERS.
    You know when I go camping and no ‘hot’ water showers are around only cold water you can imagine the quick bath.
    Her ancestors bathed in the river and napped in their tents without complaints.

      So true Jen. I’m sure some of her subjects back in Attawapiskat would enjoy a stay at a hotel.
      What she’s doing is nothing short of blackmailing the Prime Minister and the taxpaying people of this country.
      The PM will meet with Chiefs but she’s going to continue the “hunger strike” charade. That tells all.

      • Jen Says:

        the PM imo, is meeting with her for the simple reason: the ‘idle no more’ are obstructing areas where the general public who pay taxpayers have to use to get to and from work.

    Maybe try Hilton Lac Leamy Gatineau, Quebec. Seems popular:
    Assembly of First Nations Special Chiefs Assembly December 4 – 6, 2012. Hilton Lac Leamy Gatineau, Quebec
    Keeping the Promise Conference, Feb 26 – Mar 1, 2013, at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau Quebec

    If you follow the CBC spin you’d think they’d be hauling her out on a stretcher attached to life support.

      The CBC are brain dead fools remember when they were chasing that fake hacking scandal at the NDP leadership convention

    She’s getting in a Dodge Avenger, the car of choice for rental companies. Wonder who is paying the bill?

    What is happening with the fact that she earns $70,000 a year (pays no taxes). The bands own shares (millions) in Apple and a Chinese Telephone Company… it was on 1010 CFRB today …. what is wrong with our news people are they hearing the same.. why not tell us the truth about that RICH indian Band and all the money they have for all sort of Arena and not important stuff…… and act like beggers ….

    Crown – First Nations Gathering Outcome Stateme

    24 January 2012
    Ottawa, Ontario

    I am deeply disappointed that the some FN have not regarded this gathering as meaniful to say something to Spence in our behalf – the taxpayers. Nor did they take the opportunity to talk to Chief Spence letting her know that she indeed received millions of dollars from the fed gov from the general public that was ‘supposed to be used on and for her people.
    Instead, what we see is a ‘gang up’ on the gov for selfish reason.

    If the FN have no use then what the government should do is revert back to the ways the liberals under Trudeau and chretein dealt with the NATIVES and NO MORE. Erase everything what this CPC has done new for the natives. Give the same amount of money the liberals gave and not a dime more.

    When this problem with Attawaspikat reserve started, the government tried to send in a outside financial manager; Theresa Spence argued against it with the support of Charley Angus. It gave the impression that Spence ws trying to hide something and Charlie Angus want the real suffering natives to remain obvilious to the whole truth behind Chief Spence wasting money on frivilous nonsense.

    This whole mess is not the fed gov fault at the way Chief Spence treats her people. If the innocent natives under her care ‘DO ‘ become aware of their situation is been exploiterated to suit political parties for votes and their chief’s personal gain, is when and only when things will ever change in the reserves.

    I wonder if the hotel offers room service?

  9. Anonymous Says:

    Well, of course, she had to go to the hotel to partake in the traditional ‘taking of the Twinkies ceremony 😉

    Man, somebody, please put a bug in that teepee to get the real story of this charlatan.

    Lets not worry about the health of Chiefess Spence, she’s already had Doc Bennett and Doc Fry make a teepee call.

  13. Who lied more during interview – CTV’s Kevin Newman or Chief Spence? « BC Blue: One BC Conservative's view on it all… Says:

    […] the protest and “return to her family”. Spence is staying at a Ottawa hotel with them (see here) and the last figure we had from her boyfriend (who is in charge of the donations coming in) was […]
