AZA FN's comments - Northern Road Link

Reference Number

Impacts on Mother Earth will be huge with the Northern Roads Project (NRL). The access this development will create will be like never seen in this unmarked area. There are always positive and negative issues to consider with a project of this magnitude for the people, communities, natural environment, and existing wildlife. The initial feedback is an amalgamation obtained from the historical data from the community combining the expertise and knowledge of our land users in the project area. Our community's contributions are beyond academia and are part of our history and cultural practices. Continued and significantly advanced consultation will be required to further and fully understand the extent of the impacts on Animbiigoo Zaagi'igan Anishinaabek. Serious consequences will come with these decisions on the project activities that cannot be taken back once commenced. After contorting the landscape, it will be that way forever.

Please find attached a letter with our community's comments for your review.
