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."
Ontario Regional Chief Angus Toulouse has expressed his trong support for KI in our fight against Gods Lake Resources desecration. "As First Nations people the lands and the waters are central to our survival as nations and we accept our responsibility to take care of them for our future generations — in fact nothing is more important… The fact of the matter is that First Nations know their rights and they are going to resist and they will not give up,” said Chief Toulouse.
