Is Chief Theresa Spence your 2012 newsmaker of the year? POLL

Theresa Spence (Image via Montreal Gazette) Is hunger striker Chief Theresa Spence, who entered Day 20 of her peaceful protest today, your 2012 newsmaker of the year? Is it the Idle No More movement? The Quebec student movement? Beleaguered Toronto Mayor Rob Ford? Is it Kevin Page, Canada’s fearless gallant Parliamentary Budget Officer, who showed uncommon courage recently when he took the Harper government to court seeking accountability and transparency over the $5.2 billion in fiscal savings outlined in the 2012 federal budget?

Oh, very well, it’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who has so far maintained a stubborn wall of silence as Chief Spence starves for justice for Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the world over. No?
