Join marching bands from across North America (names TBA) for a fun-filled, family friendly protest at Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's home to demand an end to unwanted logging in Grassy Narrows and real action on mercury poisoning.
August 25, 2013. Buses depart from Christie Pits Park, Toronto, at 11:30 a.m. Return at 3:00 p.m.
PLEASE REGISTER FOR A SPOT ON THE BUS! http://bit.ly/GNdemoatWynne
Mercury poisoning has left its terrible mark on three generations of Anishinaabe people – loss of balance, tremors, loss of vision, numbness, cerebral palsy, and more.
Last summer Wynne promised to do something about this tragedy. Over a year later there has been no improvement in the lives of Grassy Narrows people, only talk. Instead of helping the Province continues to plan for more clearcut logging in Grassy Narrows' watershed – a practice that further increases mercury poison levels in local fish.
No more delays, we need action now.
