KI suspends landuse planning talks with Ontario

 

KI has suspended talks with Ontario intended to come to agreement on the future of KI Homeland.  KI cited a lack of resources to enable the community to fully inform itself, and refusal by Ontario to adjust the March 2012 mining withdrawal boundaries to properly reflect all of KI Homeland.  The letter notes that parts of KI Homeland, including half the KI Watershed Declaration area, are still open to mining under Ontario law.   This policy appears to invite further crisis like the Platinx and GLR disputes.  But KI is open to renewing dialogue on a meaningful path to recognition, restoration, and reconcilliation.
