Members of Grassy Narrows First Nation, along with several hundred supporters, marched through downtown Toronto on July 31. To simulate a wild river, people carried fish cutouts and 1,500 meters of bright blue fabric rippling in the wind. They stopped traffic along University Avenue as they made their way to Queen’s Park. Grassy Narrows Chief Roger Fobister Sr., wearing a traditional headdress, led the walkers.

The march was one of several activities held during the week to garner support for the First Nation’s ongoing fight for the protection of their waters and homelands.
