Canada | Ontario First Nation government declares its territory a PA

GRASSY NARROWS FIRST NATION, ON — Perry Bellegarde, the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, has pledged support for Grassy Narrows First Nation's prohibition against all industrial logging within its traditional territory.


The ban was announced Tuesday as community leaders declared their territory to be "an Indigenous Sovereignty and Protected Area," and said they would henceforth make their own land use decisions.
