Today, there was a lot of people at the checkpoint. Many Anishinabek from the community and around, Mohawks from Akwesasne and Kahnawake, Quebecers and visitors from many origins. The objective: to foster unity against the destruction of Mother Earth.
Representatives from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Resolute Forest Products, who were invited to come and talk with the community to find a fair solution to the issue, didn’t show up. However, we had a pleasant surprise when a Bailiff sent by the Superior court of Quebec came to serve a letter of notice to logging company Louisiana Pacific, which is harvesting frantically in the checkpoint’s area. Friday, at the request of the community, a judge will decide whether or not to issue an injunction against Louisiana Pacific to interrupt logging activities.
