Ontario is currently violating Native land rights and sacred burial sites by allowing gold mining company God’s Lake Resources to explore and prospect Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) sacred burial grounds WITHOUT consultation or consent.

CALL BETWEEN 1pm & 2pm, EVERYDAY!

Ontario has devastatingly ignored Native land rights for TOO LONG. KI protects all life by resisting mining abuse on their traditional territory. Speak out to support KI! Call Bartolucci and demand that Ontario respect KI sacred burial sites and land rights NOW!

CALL NOW: 416-327-0633 – Ask for Rick Bartolucci (Minister of Mining and Northern Affairs) or leave a message.
You can also reach him directly at his constituency office: 705-675-1914

Phone Script:

List of demands and some points to mention:

-Demand that Gods Lake Resources’ mining exploration project in the KI sacred landscape stops immediately.

-It is a disgrace that your government has recorded claims and allowed God's Lake Resources to access KI territory near Sherman Lake even after your minister was notified of the presence of sacred burials in the area and after your government promised to build a new relationship with First Nations and the environment.

-Ontario must finally begin to respect Native land rights by recognizing and respecting KI’s Water Declaration and Consultation Protocol.

-Respect KI’s moratorium on all logging, mining exploration and industrial activity unless and until they have been agreed to through KI’s Consultation Protocol.

You can conclude by saying:

I will continue watching this situation closely, and I will continue to take action to ensure that KI’s Declaration and Protocol are recognized and respected by all governments and corporations.
