Send a Letter to Prime Minister Harper and Premier Wynne
Dear Prime Minister Harper and Premier Wynne:
Re: Proposed Hydro-electric Generating Station at the Bala Falls
I have recently become aware of a letter from the Wahta Mohawks to you (a copy of the letter is at http://wahtamohawks.ca/wp-content/uploads/portage.pdf).
This letter causes me great concern as it appears that the Canadian federal and Ontario provincial governments are not honouring their commitments to properly consult with First Nations.
Until the government’s Duty to Consult has been fulfilled, I therefore request the following:
1) Transport Canada not provide any approvals which would enable the proposed construction work to begin.
2) The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources not provide any approvals or land leases which would enable any work being done or trees being destroyed at the proposed site.
Please respond with what actions you will direct your government to take on this important matter.
