It’s bad enough when you have one con-man on the loose, co-opting Native suffering for his own benefit. but when he has support by high profile activists who affiliate themselves with Idle No More, it is heaping salt on amputated limbs.
Above is pictured Carrie Lester (photo credit to Robert van Waarden), self-ascribed mouth piece of the Idle No More movement and loooong time supporter of Kevin Annett. You might remember her from the Occupy Toronto video (appearing at 2:41) featuring the Reverend Kevin Annett and that it was at that meeting that he claimed he had unearthed the remains of two small children from a five-foot square by two-foot deep ‘excavation’ conducted at Brantford Indian Residential School.

Lester, who has made much of her own reputation from the promotion of Kevin at speaking engagements was present at the Mush Hole in Brantford and actively assisted Kevin in his fraudulent claims in interviews with newspapers, television and radio. She also helped him reach avid listeners and students at venues such as Ryerson and Trent Universities. Her YouTube channel still features the Occupy Toronto/Kevin Annett debacle.
Lester also is a known associate of paid activists and known provocateurs at protests and rallys over everything from Idle No More to the Line 9. She claims a Native heritage which, she supposes, entitles her to a certain amount of outrage. All fine and dandy, except when you regularly affiliate yourself with unscrupulous characters like Kevin Annett, Sakura Saunders and ‘chief’ Davyn Calfchild (pictured below).
No blogger has unearthed more dirt on the various Native and Environmental movements than Greg Renouf of genuinewitty.com, and not only of their very slimy behavior, but of their connectedness to one another. Carrie Lester is involved with many of the activists Renouf has called out and conveniently turns a blind eye when they run amok.
Like the most recent re-appearance of Kevin Annett (using a fake profile Ciaran O’Neil) where he is busy banging out posts promoting all his recently published ‘books’.
Let Willie Pickton Speak: Revealing the Bigger Picture of Canada’s Genocide
by Kevin D. Annett
“Pickton was the straw man set up for everyone to gawk at and hate while the real killers got away. The arrangement was vast and orchestrated from the very top”. – Grant Wakefield, former CSIS agent and undercover operative at the “Piggy’s Palace” killing site, August 4, 2011
