Hello. I appreciate the work going into this!! And I rarely complain, but I wanted to suggest making this site more colorful and uplifting. I find it dark, and serious, which is actually in my perception intimidating. A bright pic of kids holding signs that they want water protect is more how I am thinking and why I am being the movement. I feel such images are what Canadians and other Global citizens will connect with.
If you have reasons for your current set up, but all means, keep it. But I had to suggest, as this is my impressions at this time.

I don't necessarily have an issue with the nature of the site's colours but it is a bit difficult for some to read a light font on a dark background. In the spirit of accessibility perhaps this could be considered. Thanks!

Dear Creator of Idle No More's Website,

I am only making the effort to write this message because I am committed to what Idle No More stands for and need to let you know that the appearance of this website is lacking both professionalism and accessibility.

Please consider changing this website as it is almost impossible for me to read. The dark background is very hard to look at and if I wasn't so interested in Idle No More I would have quickly closed the web browser. I am a university student, so the issue isn't that I can't see well, or that I am not used to staring at the computer screen.

I truly respect that a significant amount of work has gone into this site. I hope that you will consider my concerns without any misunderstanding.

Sincerely,
MeliaTree

I also find this site dark and depressing, but waddya want? It was free from meekis who donated it. I had to sign up just to say this. IdleNoMore.ca should be bright & uplifting instead of looking like ya wanna blow your brains out or over-dosing on anti-depressants.

I agree make it more uplifting. I know it was free and donated which is great. I can be contacted here if you want to make changes and my company will help and no charge as well. The set up is very good as well as the layout just colours, change from the dark and turn the lights on.
