KI Chief's statement on youtube

Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) Chief Donny Morris has posted a youtube video on his community web site explaining his position on Ontario's recently announced plans for Ontario's Northern Boreal Forest, an area the size of California. This is a rare chance to hear analysis of this important development directly from a community leader whose people will be directly affected by the new plans. watch?v=j5sOxLOpLB4 Last year, Chief Morris and five of his councilors were sentenced to 6 months in jail for refusing to allow mining exploration to proceed on their territory without consent. An appeal court recently freed the KI6 and has recently released their reasons - a big step forward for the right to consent and also for the right to protest.
