Come out to show that the general community supports the Wahta Mohawk’s concerns:
- If you would like to be part of the flotilla, be at the Town Docks on the Moon River at 10:30 am this Thursday August 28, 2014 with your canoe or kayak (and PFD and marine safety kit).
- Otherwise, be at the District property just south of the Bala north falls at 11:00 am.
This event is about the Bala Portage, so no red T-shirts and no signs. Those in attendance will be there in support of Wahta Mohawk and the Bala Portage.
