Leesee Papatsie, the food security activist from Iqaluit who started the Feeding My Family website and movement in Nunavut, was chosen this week as a finalist for an Everyday Political Citizen award. The awards were organized by Samara, a non-partisan charitable organization that promotes political participation in Canada. The Everyday Political Citizen project "celebrates the un-sung heroes of Canadian democracy," says their website. Samara picked 14 prominent Canadians to choose 13 adults and eight youth among the 200 people nominated from across the country. Papatsie was chosen by Kathleen Monk, senior advisor at the Broadbent Institute and former director of strategic communications for the late Jack Layton, one-time leader of the federal NDP.
