Welcome! I love to write, and I love sharing what I write with my readers. I vary my style as much as I can-posting events, creative non-fiction, prose and poetry and the occasional video. Enjoy!

Steelworker's Hall, 25 Cecil Street, Toronto
Wednesday June 6th, Noon. Queen's Park south lawn.
MARCH AND RALLY WITH GRASSY NARROWS
Friday June 8, Noon. Grange Park (behind the Art Gallery of Ontario on Beverly)
In April 2010, we marched together as one wild river flowing onto the steps of Queen’s Park to deliver our demands on World Health Day. We ask that you join us again this year to make clear to those at Queen’s Park that we’re as strong as ever, and will continue to demand justice for our people and protection for our environment.
Over 40 years ago Grassy Narrows people were poisoned by mercury from a paper mill that contaminated their river upstream. They are demanding justice because they are still dealing with the ongoing health impacts of this avoidable disaster. It’s an inescapable truth that this poison will affect everyone if we don’t stand together to protect our water.
For decades the GNAA community members have been on the front lines of the movement to defend the earth and to uphold Indigenous self-determination, culture and spirituality. We have kicked out logging giant Abitibi for now, but there is still much work to be done.
Joining in RiverRun 2012 is a great opportunity to show your support and to join us in the fight to protect Indigenous rights and the water, air, land, and creatures that we all depend on.
