Grassy Narrows supporters parade to Premiere Wynne's house

by Kevin Konnyu

Grassy Narrows Indigenous Nation supporters, including a marching band, paraded to Premier Wynne's house on Sunday, August 25th. Their banners read "You wouldn't live with mercury in your home, why must Grassy Narrows?" “The government has taken away our forests and given us back disease and sickness and death,” said Judy Da Silva, a Grassy Narrows Clan Mother. “Wynne promised to help us, but she did not take that commitment seriously. It is time for Ontario to listen to our people when we say no to logging that brings more mercury poison into our rivers and our bodies.”
