Please note: The Council of Canadians London Chapter will be keeping NONE of the monies raised and after any event expenses, 75% of the proceeds will go towards the Chippewas of the Thames Legal Expenses. The Council of Canadians London Chapter is also wanting to be supportive of the brave Water Protectors Vanessa Gray, Sarah Scanlon & Stone Stewart, who shut down line 9 temporarily and will be donating a smaller portion (25%) of the proceeds towards their legal costs. For the sake of accountability and transparency an accounting of collection and disbursement will be given to all involved.

This event takes place on the ancestral lands of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabek, Lenape, Huron-Wendat, and Attawandaron Peoples.

Many thanks to the N'Amerind Friendship Centre for the use of their beautiful space for this event.
