An indigenous group in Ontario, Canada, has been pushing for what they say are basic human rights. They have just achieved an important win in their aim to end what they say is the isolation of Shoal Lake. The 40km-long Freedom Road has just opened and it links the community with the Trans-Canada Highway. But the Idle No More movement is still fighting for the equal sharing of water. They have used protests, online activism and blockades to draw attention to their situation. Daniel Lak reports from Shoal Lake in Canada.
