Feb 28, 2011:
I was born on the banks of the Sibi Nesswabic (Petawawa River) in unceded Algonquin territory where Xeneca has proposed developments. I still live by the river. I am an Elder of the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation. I am proud of my identity. I have been taught to live my name so you can count on me to work hard to keep the river running freely. I wish to preserve the Petawawa River to be enjoyed by my family and friends now and for the future generations. I ask you to drop all of your plans for developments on the Petawawa River.
