REQUEST FROM GBA RE WIKY LAND SETTLEMENT

URGENT – Action required by October 16th

Further to my previous correspondence on the Wiikwemkong (Wiky) Land Settlement, I would like your help in getting GBA members to send letters/emails to the Ontario government expressing their/our interest and concerns over the proposed settlement. We have drafted a sample letter for people to consider using. As you will see, we are not only focussing on the immediate proposal in the Killarney area but also the larger Wiky Land Claim on all islands from Penetang to Sault Ste Marie and the potential for this settlement to trigger other claims by other First Nations.

The formal public consultation window is open until October 16th. As in all government consultations, number of responses is key. If the government does not hear from many members of the public they will assume that their proposal is acceptable. So please get the word out to your members and encourage them to send in letters immediately.

The sample letter and further background information can be found on our web site: www.georgianbay.ca.

Thanks.

John McMullen
President GBA
