Grassy Narrows teens ejected from Ontario legislature for protest

 


TORONTO – A group of teenagers from the remote Grassy Narrows First Nation were ejected from the Ontario legislature today for wearing T-shirts reading: “water is sacred.”

The teens travelled 1,700 kilometres from the northern reserve near the Manitoba border to demand the province take action to clean up the mercury that has poisoned local rivers, lakes and fish _ and made people sick _ for decades.
