Call to Action: Please Watch Documentary –First Nation, Eabametoong, Takes Legal Action Against Mining Company for Violating Treaty
Eabametoong has been forced to take legal action against the province AND Landore, to defend the rights of community members and to protect their land.
Ontario issued exploration permits to Landore, which intends to drill for gold throughout a large region of sensitive wetlands and culturally-significant hunting grounds, fish spawning sites and a burial area. Landore insists on moving forward and putting the Aboriginal and Treaty rights of EFN at risk, even through there is NO community support.
EFN has raised these serious concerns through consultation processes and directly to Ministers and Premier Wynne, but Ontario’s permit stands unless EFN’s legal action prevails.
Today and tomorrow, EFN’s Judicial Review hearing takes place in Toronto.
EFN created this short documentary, and we would greatly appreciate you taking the time to view it:

Please stand in solidarity with EFN as we navigate this, send your wishes for a positive outcome, and spread the word!! Canadians deserve to know the backstory of how Treaties are STILL violated, moving away from progress made toward reconciliation with indigenous communities.
