Chapter activist Ann Pohl in the Mi'kmaki Water Walk, May 21.
The Council of Canadians Kent County chapter participated in Mi'kmaki Water Walk 2016 this past weekend.
Kent County chapter activist Ann Pohl took part in the walk on May 21.
As noted on their Facebook page, "Mi'kmaki Water Walk 2016, plans to walk in 7 Mi'kmaq Districts to raise awareness and protect our Mother Earth and waters for our future generations." The walk for the Shubenacadie River in Sipekne'katik district started on Saturday May 14 at the mouth of the Shubenacadie River in Maitland, Nova Scotia and concluded on May 21 where the Shubenacadie River flows into the Grand Lake at Oakfield Provincial Park.
The Shubenacadie River is threatened by the Alton Natural Gas Storage LP proposal.
The Council of Canadians has been helping to oppose a plan by the company to store natural gas near the rural community of Alton, which is situated about 75 kilometres north of Halifax.
