Legal Case Deserves Support

Letter to the Editor, October 26, 2016

Re: Chippewas of the Thames protest pipeline, Oct. 20

The case that the Chippewas of the Thames is taking to the Supreme Court of Canada strikes at the heart and soul of this country’s relationship with the indigenous people and their rights and the government of Canada’s duty to consult. This also applies to the Clyde River appeal.

I am also so very grateful to the indigenous people who are courageously acting to protect the water, the air, the land and present and future generations. They need and deserve our support and solidarity. I hope many people will donate to this extremely important legal case.
