HALIFAX - More than 200 people waved flags and chanted as they marched across Halifax's Macdonald Bridge today as part of the Idle No More movement.

One lane of the three-lane bridge, which connects Halifax to the suburb of Dartmouth, was shut down to accommodate the activists.

The demonstrators could be heard chanting "Idle No More" as they walked toward downtown along Gottingen Street to the Citadel Hill, where they stopped to pray.

They were then expected to eventually make their way to the Halifax Common.

The march is part of a wave of Idle No More protests across the country today.

The protests highlight aboriginal rights and the environment as the House of Commons returns from its winter break.

Organizations: House of Commons

Geographic location: Halifax, Dartmouth, Gottingen Street
