God's Lake Resources Inc., a mining exploration company, is threatening to re-enter the Homeland of the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) Indigenous Nation this month to resume exploring on sacred burial grounds. KI has told God's Lake Resources that they are not welcome on their Homeland. Ontario has refused to step in and stop the exploration and KI is calling for public support and mobilization, particularly in Toronto and Southern Ontario.

As part of this broader mobilization, the Toronto KI Support Group, CUPE 3902, OPIRG U of T, the University of Toronto Graduate Students' Union, Earthroots, Mining Watch Canada, and Council of Canadians are organizing a speaking event on March 5, 2012 at the Steelworkers' Hall at 25 Cecil Street in Toronto.

At these events KI leaders will speak to the public about the situation they are facing with God's Lake Resources Inc. and about KI’s bold vision for their homeland and environment..  

For more information about how you can help build this mobilization, please check out the Toronto KI Support Network's facebook page at and KI's website,
