HUMAN RIGHTS DAY

Guest Speaker

Bob LOVELACE

“STEPS TOWARDS FREEDOM IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD”

Bob Lovelace is making Canadian history. Being co-chief of the Ardoch Nation and an Algonquin, he together with other members of his Nation blocked the uranium mining company Frontenac Ventures from prospecting and exploiting his Nation’s land (under dispute by a land claim) without permission. For his actions, he was sent to jail. He will speak about his experience and the struggle facing indigenous land rights in Canada today.
