The Loaded Ladle voices our support for water protectors at the Treaty Truckhouse in their ongoing resistance to the Alton Gas project.
On Monday, March 18th, the Nova Scotia Supreme Court ordered a temporary injunction against those defending the Sipekne’katik (Shubenacadie) river against brining, naming two individuals, including a Mi’kmaq rights holder, in particular. This is despite the 2017 ruling that the Sipekne’katik First Nation had not been adequately consulted in the lead-up to the project’s approval.
The Loaded Ladle encourages community members — those who cook, clean, and eat with us — to learn about this particular struggle, and the 1752 Peace and Friendship Treaty between Mi’kmaq and settlers in this province. All of Mi’kmaki is unceded, unsurrendered Indigenous land and all of us living here are treaty people.
