As early as this month, God's Lake Inc. a mining company based in Toronto, will attempt to begin exploration on sacred burial grounds in traditional KI territory, about 20 hours north of Toronto.

With the Ontario government refusing to act, the KI Nation has called for allies in Toronto to urgently support their political campaign to defend their lands and sovereignty.
