Come eat with us, and hear community members talk about their land defense camp and other efforts. In the coming weeks, a junior mining company intends to begin exploratory drilling in the heart of the community’s territory, without consultation or consent. A copper mine would be devastating to the community, and would also affect a large part of the La Vérendrye wildlife reserve and the headwaters of the Ottawa river. Community members have set-up an indefinite land-defense camp on the main access road to the area.
The dinner is free / by donation. Those attending will be encouraged to donate to support the land defense camp if they are able to. The event is organized by QPIRG McGill,
