River Run for Grassy Narrows

Valerie Lannon

July 31, 2014

Chanting "Kathleen Wynne, where've you been? All those broken promses", about 500 Indigenous and non-Indigenous activists marched on July 31 in Toronto to support the Grassy Narrows First Nation.
This is an annual march to Queen's Park to protest the over 40 years that have gone by with little to no action by the Ontario Government to clean the English River, compensate local First Nations and provide proper health services for those suffering the diseases associated with poison from the mercury dumped in the river by a paper company years ago. Speakers spanned the age spectrum with both Elders and youth joining Chief Roger Fobister Sr. in denouncing the neglect by the government.  
Support for this cause is growing and people want Premier Wynne to put her words about "concern" into action - long overdue.
