Since 2018 there have been over 5,000 mining claims made in Grassy Narrows because of Doug Ford’s refusal to withdraw the area from mining and logging activity. Instead, Doug Ford allows “free entry” throughout the area so that corporations can stake mining claims from the comfort of their living rooms without giving prior notice to Grassy Narrows.

On June 21st Grassy Narrows and their supporters will tell Doug Ford No Mining On Anishinaabe Territory!

You can join in this united effort by:

  1. Share Grassy’s social media posts on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook on June 21st with supporters across Turtle Island and tag Doug Ford with hashtags #LandAlliance #FreeGrassy #GrassyNarrows
  2. Change your Facebook profile picture to the downloadable image attached to this email
  3. Sign and share the petition below demanding Doug Ford put an end to mining on Grassy Narrows territory


Sign the Petition Telling Doug Ford No Mining On Anishinaabe Territory!  

Chief Turtle recently stated that Grassy Narrows has “already made up its mind that mining is no good for our territory because mining always scars the land.”

Leadership from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI, or Big Trout Lake First Nation), Wapekeka, Neskantaga, Asubpeeschoseewagong Anishinabek (Grassy Narrows), and Muskrat Dam confronted Doug Ford at Queen’s Park in March of this year, demanding that Doug Ford meet with them and end the antiquated “free entry” system. The Premier would not even look the leaders in the eyes. On June 21st we will send a message to Doug Ford that Grassy Narrows will not be ignored.

P.S. If you haven’t donated to support Grassy Narrows’ action to repair their fire escape route please donate now if you can – any amount helps.
