In the spirit of cultural preservation, Beau Dick and his family will embark this weekend on an Idle No More journey from their home on the northern tip of Vancouver Island to the legislature building in Victoria.

There, a copper-cutting ceremony will take place, symbolically breaking the chains that bind us, freeing our hands so that we may create a better future for our children. No matter age, race or location — each one of us has a part to play and only together we shall rise as one.

The family begins the trip Saturday in Alert Bay, overnighting in Campbell River. They will stay in Comox on Saturday night, proceeding through Qualicum, Nanaimo, Chemainus and Duncan before arriving Feb. 10 at the legislature.
