We give thanks for the life of Chief Simon Fobister whose Grassy Narrows community remembered him in a memorial dinner last week.  To the very end of his life, Fobister fought for justice—calling on the Ontario and Federal governments to recognize the damage that mercury poisoning had done to Grassy Narrows demanding they follow through on their promises to clean it out of the waterways and provide treatment for the survivors.  As members of Grassy Narrows continue to feel the effects of mercury poisoning, including Chief Fobister’s children, we pray for their healing and for the Canadian government to at last honor its word and build a mercury treatment center.
