Province offers mercury remediation update – Dryden Now

May 26, 2019

Queen’s Park is offering an update on efforts to clean up the English River and Wabigoon River systems. Earlier this week, the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks released a prepared statement.

“The ministry remains committed to working with Indigenous communities to identify mercury contaminated sites in the English and Wabigoon Rivers and develop and implement a plan to appropriately remediate these sites,” it said.

The minister, Rod Phillips, visited Grassy Narrows First Nations in last fall, where he met the chief, deputy chief and members of the community, the statement continued. Minister Phillips has also met with Chief John Paishk and other council members of Wabaseemong (Whitedog) First Nation.

An $85 million English and Wabigoon Rivers Remediation Trust was established by the previous government at Queen’s Park, and the English and Wabigoon Rivers Remediation Panel directs how funds from the trust are distributed. The panel is comprised of members from Grassy Narrows First Nation, Wabaseemoong Independent Nations and Ontario.
