Prayers for Peacemakers April 16, 2014
Give thanks that Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources has
decided not to issue logging permits on Grassy Narrows (Asubpeeschoseewagong)
traditional lands this year, and that the EACOM and Weyerhaeuser corporations have
decided not to purchase lumber from Grassy Narrows’ traditional lands. Pray that justice will be done next
month when the case goes to Canada’s highest court in Ottawa that will focus on
whether Ontario has the right to issue permits on traditional lands, which
First Nations believe are protected by a treaty agreements.
