Vermilion River Stewardship supports the grassroots Idle No More campaign by First Nations and other Canadians to protect our land, our water, and First Nations’ treaty rights. Our major environmental legislation has been gutted, including the critically important Navigable Waters Protection Act and the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. Our fresh water and healthy river ecosystems are of vital importance for the future of all First Nations and Canadians.
“All people will be affected by the continued damage to the land and water and we welcome Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies to join in creating healthy sustainable communities.”
Vermilion River Stewardship stands in solidarity with First Nations. We are all treaty people.
