Day 67: get stuck behind a blockade

Usually I enjoy taking the train, it’s quite relaxing. Not so much today though. It started off fast paced with me getting on the train having only five minutes to spare. Once we started I drifted in and out of sleep. My delightful trip has gone downhill quickly now that we’ve been stopped for hour two due to a native blockade. I’m not resentful toward the natives, this is their final act of desperation of having the government ignore a request for an inquest into missing native women. This has been an issue for years and so I blame prime minister Harper and his lack of participation and support for this issue.
Despite my relative understanding I am not impressed with this situation. No alternate transportation yet and VIA rail had not been forthcoming in sharing information or providing any food or drinks.
