CELA joins leading Indigenous and environmental organizations in calling for this moratorium. Our Statement has been sent in a letter to the Prime Minister, Premier of Ontario, and Ministers of Environment. It was prepared in collaboration with Indigenous community organizers, including our client the Friends of the Attawapiskat River, in recognition of our shared duty to uphold and respect inherent Indigenous and treaty rights.
