Community leaders from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) Nation will be in Toronto at a public talk on March 5th followed by a rally on March 6th to demand that God's Lake Resources Inc (GLR) stop exploration on sacred burial grounds on their Homeland and that Ontario cease all mining and exploration on KI Lands and respect KI's Water Declaration
OFL: "[W]e believe that the government must deliver on its 2008 promise of a joint panel to resolve KI’s outstanding issues with mining exploration. A moratorium must be placed on mining and exploration until an accord can be reached. We further support KI’s Water Declaration and Consultation Protocol and call on Ontario to fully recognize and respect these Indigenous laws."
