Toxic Threat: Radioactive Waste on Indigenous Lands (Nov 8 Toronto Ontario)

  • 4 Devonshire Pl Toronto, ON M5S 2E1 (map)

A new proposal to transport and dump radioactive waste on Indigenous lands, without the consent of these communities, threatens the very survival of both present and future generations. Standing at the nexus of land rights and environmental justice, a team of powerful and distinguished Indigenous leaders are coming to the University of Toronto to address this pressing crisis. Join us on Wednesday, November 8th at the Upper Library of Massey College from 5-7pm to join the discussion! 

Our panelists include:

• Grand Chief Patrick Madahbee of the Anishinabek Nation; 
• Quinn Meawasige and Candace Neveau, members of the Bawating Water Protectors; 
• Dr. Gordon Edwards, Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility; and
• Angela Bischoff, Outreach Director for the Ontario Clean Air Alliance.

*** On Thursday, November 9th from 12 - 2 PM, please join us in a public demonstration at Queen's Park. Together, we will be protesting the proposed burial and abandonment of nuclear waste on First Nations territories, potentially poisoning the waterways, soil and air forever with radioactive contamination, and will be calling for a 100% renewable future. ***
