Wetlands advocates look for new ways to stop construction of South Lawrence Trafficway as legal battle ends

Hi, I want to let you know I been following this from over here in Ontario. Here in my area we had to have a vigil/occupation to get our burial grounds back...the land where some our our ancestors were buried was sold by the local township and houses were built overtop of their remains. This was unknown to most of the local residents...long story but one thing worth mentioning is that the contractor is responsible if bones are found... The one working at our burial ground site told the 'landowner' about the remains noticed and it was disregarded. I pray that if it comes to be...for honest contractors and workers with integrity who are not afraid to speak up and do he right thing. I uphold your connection with these wetlands and wish a better outcome. Having stories about this place tells me that it has been kept consciously in mind and under the from being desecrated. I can see racism has raised its ugly head in your area...fight the good fight! Much respect, Sheena
