The proposed project would make all this too dangerous to continue …

Aug 272014

From this letter and this media advisory, we have learned that the Wahta Mohawks were not properly informed or consulted on the proposed obstruction of the Bala Portage.

They will be conducting a "Portage-In" at the Bala falls tomorrow – this Thursday August 28, 2014at 11:00 am, to show their concern. As all the original members of the Wahta Mohawks used the Bala Portage when they first arrived from Oka Quebec in 1881, this is an important part of their heritage.

They will apparently be using the Bala Portage, CTV News and other media will be there, so we should be there too.

Come out to show that the general community supports the Wahta Mohawk’s concerns:

  • If you would like to be part of the flotilla, be at the Town Docks on the Moon River at 10:30 am this Thursday August 28, 2014 with your canoe or kayak (and PFD and marine safety kit).
  • Otherwise, be at the District property just south of the Bala north falls at 11:00 am.

This event is about the Bala Portage, so no red T-shirts and no signs. We’re there to support the Wahta and the Bala Portage.
