Call the Minister of Northern Development and Mines Rick Bartolucci and ask him what part of "No" does he not understand

Need ideas for what to say when calling?

-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.
