Stop the Giveaway of Georgian Bay Islands to First Nations Community
This petition had 202 supporters
The Government of Ontario is currently in negotiations with the Wikwemkoong First Nation Community to resolve an outstanding land claim relating to the islands off the eastern shore of Manitoulin Island.
Because the land within this claim is largely privately held, the most likely alternative solution is a pristine collection of islands in Georgian Bay including Phillip Edward Island as well as the Fox and Chicken Islands.
For almost twenty years, my children and I have been paddling, exploring and camping among these beautiful Crown lands, as have thousands of other adventurous Canadians. We have learned to appreciate the truly natural rugged beauty of these islands and waters and believe them to be one of the most unique and untouched natural wonders in all of Canada!
Unless we take a stand now and send a strong message to the government of Ontario, these public lands could become private First Nations land within the next year or two. This could effectively cut off access to these beautiful islands for current and future generations of Canadians!
