Some of Canada's top First Nations leaders say the federal election awoke a sleeping giant that the new Liberal government will have to contend with. Voter turnout spiked up to 20 per cent in some largely aboriginal ridings and expectations of the new government are high. Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson, who represents northern First Nations, says people will be looking for an inquiry to be called into missing and murdered aboriginal women within the first 100 days of Justin Trudeau's mandate.
