Canadian natives slow trade traffic in day of protest

TORONTO - Canadian natives slowed traffic on a bridge crucial to US-Canadian trade on Wednesday as aboriginals across the country staged a "National Day of Action" to protest their living conditions.
Hundreds of natives, some wearing colorful dress and banging drums, blocked an access road leading to the Ambassador Bridge, according to the Globe and Mail, slowing traffic on a major trade artery that connects Windsor, Ontario, with Detroit, Michigan.
Thousands of commercial trucks cross the bridge daily, carrying approximately 25 percent of the goods traded between the two countries, which form the world's largest trading partnership.
