Greens support Grassy Narrows fight for justice

June 4, 2024

QUEEN'S PARK — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader Aislinn Clancy released the following statement in response to news that Grassy Narrows First Nation has filed a lawsuit against the provincial and federal governments over mercury contamination in the English-Wabigoon River system.

“Greens fully support Grassy Narrows’ push to hold the provincial government accountable for years of toxic mercury poisoning that have jeopardized its people’s health, livelihoods and treaty rights.

Successive provincial governments have ignored the devastating impact of mercury poisoning and left the people of Grassy Narrows waiting far too long for justice.

I call on the Premier to stop dragging his feet, remove mercury from the river and put an end to the poisoning that Grassy Narrows is facing.”
