A few weeks back, we told you about Canadian Indian chief Theresa Spence, who was staging a “hunger strike” (while consuming liquid meals) in the capital city of Ottawa, demanding a meeting with the Prime Minister to address Native Canadian grievances. We also told you how Canadian conservative commentator Ezra Levant was running circles around Spence by showing that she and her boyfriend had somehow frittered away millions upon millions of dollars in aid to their tribe. That story finally came to an end today as Spence decided to end her pointless spectacle after six weeks. During those six weeks, she managed to remain a media darling despite consistently shifting her demands and threatening reporters on tribal land with arrest. Last night, she checked into a hospital, and today gave up.


Fittingly, Spence managed to court scandal yet again with a profane tweet aimed at a conservative senator. Sen. Patrick Brazeau, himself a native former chief, dared to criticize Spence’s press conference (which she did not attend) and felt her wrath. Luckily, plenty of people got screen captures before the attack was deleted. Her people later said she didn’t issue the tweet herself, but no apology has been forthcoming.


After over a month of grandstanding, threatening journalists and ignoring revelations of potentially massive corruption, it’s amazing that this woman had any credibility left at all. All we can say is thank goodness it’s over, and thank goodness for dogged conservatives who will stand up to such hypocrites. We hope that Chief Spence is able to fully regain her health after her liquid fast, but would rather she had spared us this farce. Hopefully she will be healthy enough to someday answer questions about what she did with the tens of millions of dollars meant to help her tribe.

        Does she have someone in her family that could tell her that she’s an Indian? That counts too!

      “Chief Spend” and/or “Chief Dances with Hunger Strike on Liquified Moose and/or Caribou Through Heap Big Traditional Native Blender” is the only person in the history of the planet to gain weight & a third chin while on a Hunger Strike!

      Ghandi & Bobby Sands are envious…..

      Chief Spence was obese before the phony hunger strike and actually added a few years to her life by dropping a few pounds. Didnt work out that way for the IRA legimate hunger strikers Bobby Sands and Frankie Hughes in the 1980s

    • TomJB

      I think she has the concept of “hunger strike” backwards. It is not meant to avoid any semblance of hunger and eat constantly.

      Jokes aside, it sounds like she took hunger-strike tips from Ben Jealous, who led a great one while at Columbia. They drank “electrolyte-rich liquids” and better yet, they fasted in shifts! Yes, those on the hunger strike site didn’t eat, but if they got hungry, they got someone else to be there and not eat, while they went out to get some food.

    As a Canadian please do not judge all Native Canadians by this sorry arse piece of sh-t

      Nah, we’ll just continue ripping on Canada because of Bieber.

      Joking of course. Gotta have a sense of humor after this sad role reversal that now makes us the crazy leftists to the south.

        • Brian Roastbeef

          Heh. Yeah, but when Bieber performs he brings that stuff down here. We don’t send the Kardashians up there to… do… um… whatever it is they do… screw basketball players?

          And I’d bring up that you also gave us Jennifer Granholm, but as we’re the ones stupid enough to give it elected office, (Well, Michigan was) not really in position to get up on the high horse there… :(

      If Canadians would Read the TREATIES, they would see the Natives are NOT to get all they have been getting from the Canadian Govt. Most of the Chiefs live in Mansions, Drive Mercedes, and the people have no water, Shacks for houses, and Children are Going Hungry.

      Now I am not judging all – There are a couple of Chiefs that are doing well for their People, and the people have jobs, and homes.

      But Chief Theresa brought to light, a HUGE PROBLEM and that was the RIPPING OFF THE CANADIAN TAX PAYER. They have been Ripping off Millions if Not Billions.

      In the TREATIES Natives are NOT entitled to the Gold Card they Carry, they should be paying taxes and Working.


      this has been going on far to long, Idle no more broke the law, they have no right to demand anything from the Canadian government, they have no right to not pay taxes and make the MILLIONS they are making tax free, and they have no right to continue to rip off the tax payers of Canada.

    My mom is a Sioux native american. She left my dad and I when I was a year old. My dad got custody of me and my mom had to pay child support. She paid only a little (she would quit her job as soon as the IRS would garnish her wages). In the end, she moved back to the reservation and thus she was protected from any wage garnishments or punishments.

    Have you ever seen someone after a bout with the flu – after about two weeks of little but liquid intake? The first place you can see the weight loss – and the most obvious indication of weight loss – is in the face. Meanwhile, Chief Spence* has the fat cheeks she had weeks ago. The kid glove treatment given to her and her confreres is a little appalling.

    She was also spending her nights in a local hotel and not in the tepee she “occupied” during the day.
