STRONGER
TOGETHER

PROTECT
the KICHI SIBI
NSDF is not the best solution.

CTV Morning News Ottawa Canada January 17, 2024

"This nuclear waste facility will damage the water and we all know that.
Conscientious people are rising. We must rise together, we are all in that medicine wheel. No matter our colour, our creed or our title, we are all related in the human family and we must stand together."

We cannot stop the thunder. We cannot stop the rain from falling.
We cannot stop the lightning from shining. We cannot stop the rivers from flowing. But together as human beings, as brothers and sisters, we can certainly stop the nuclear waste facility from coming here on the Ottawa River."

IRREVERSIBLE HARM TO BIODIVERSITY

Our Solution

1. Canadian and Indigenous laws should equally protect biodiversity in accordance with the principle of legal pluralism in Canada, a notion reinforced by Aboriginal title and the Quebec superior court's decision in White and Montour, which recognizes Indigenous laws' crucial role in accommodating the Nation's sovereignty, particularly in unceded territories.

 

2. Canada needs to commit to a strategy that aligns with its international legal obligations and UNDA 2021 towards the Algonquin Anishinaabe peoples and the biodiversity of lands previously managed sustainably under Algonquin Anishinaabe laws and practices.

PROTECT THE  ANIMAL NATIONS

NSDF Story Map

Our mission is to protect the Kichi Sibi River and its wildlife from the dangers of nuclear waste. We are a community movement dedicated to keeping our environment safe and healthy for generations to come.

Our Legal Action Fund

We need your help to pursue a judicial review of CNSC’s decision to license the NSDF project. We are asking for donations to our legal action fund to cover court fees as we challenge the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission in court to protect the Ottawa River.
