ABPA’s Stronger Together: AGM & Forum

ABPA’s  Stronger Together: AGM & Forum

Themes of First Nations-led Economic Growth

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~  October 10, 2021  (LSNews)  Following opening remarks by returning President and co-founder of ABPA, Jason Rasevych, and an opening blessing by Fort William First Nation Elder Victor Pelletier, forum events kicked off with an impassioned and frank discussion about the state of reconciliation with MPP Sol Mamakwa.

Highlights of Mr. Mamakwa’s conversation with moderators Rachael Paquette (ABPA Co-founder and Vice President and founder of Paquette & Associates Law) and Brian Davey (ABPA Director and Executive Director of the Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund) included:

  • - The need for non-Indigenous leadership to demonstrate authentic commitment to understanding and mitigating the harmful legacy of colonialism after Prime Minister Trudeau’s scheduled family vacation on Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, and the Ontario government’s refusal to recognize the day as a statutory holiday.
  • - The need for all First Nations people, and youth in particular, to understand the power inherent in their treaty rights, and to rise up together to use this power to advocate for essential basic infrastructure, like housing, and to assert their jurisdiction and nationhood, without fear of losing funding.
  • - First Nations-led economic development is essential to ensure sustainable development in the North.
  • - First Nations must work harder to find their commonalities to leverage strength in working together so as not to fall prey to the colonial tactic of ‘divide and conquer’
