Clarification regarding substance used in CP rail spraying

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

The Public Safety Unit of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) is advising the community of erroneous information surrounding the Canadian Pacific (CP) Vegetation Management Program spraying that took place on Tuesday, May 31st, 2016.

Concerned individuals have contacted the PSU claiming that the substance sprayed onto the tracks was a carcinogenic chemical called Glysophate. This information is inaccurate. CP utilizes the product Esplanade, which has the active ingredient Indaziflam, a biodegradeable herbicide that inhibits growth in vegetation.

In the past, the PSU has requested that CP not carry out any spraying on the tracks. However, failure to do so puts the integrity of the infrastructure at risk of failure. There are concerns that the MCK could be held liable in the case of a derailment due to lack of proper maintenance (i.e. weed growth).

While both the MCK Public Safety Unit and the Environment Protection Office have concerns about spraying, it is agreed that safety must remain a priority.

The Material Safety Data Sheet is below:

Kahnawake and Six Nations Exercising Inherent Right to Participate in Tobacco Trade

Wednesday, April 6, 2016

The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke and the Elected Council of Six Nations of the Grand River have collaborated to release the following information, setting the record straight on false statements recently issued by the Sûreté du Québec.

As First Nations, Kahnawà:ke and Six Nations have the legal right to produce, distribute, and trade tobacco. Any attempt to regulate or restrict a First Nation from manufacturing and participating in inter-Nation trade within the tobacco industry is an attack on this inherent Indigenous right.

“Tobacco is our natural product,” said Kahnawà:ke Grand Chief Joseph Tokwiro Norton. “We’ve used it for centuries. We use it for ceremonies and, when the Europeans came, we later used it for trade. They took the product, made it ‘their own’ and – all of a sudden – it’s illegal.”

Operations, like the recent MYGALE project, often lump the legal manufacturing and trade of tobacco by Indigenous people with organized crime activities. This is not only incorrect, but highly misleading.

Both Kahnawà:ke and Six Nations have deemed organized crime, and criminal activities to be illegal within their Territories. Both Iroquois communities cooperate with neighbouring law enforcement bodies on investigations relating to illegal activities occurring within their Nations and/or involving their community members. Tobacco is not an illegal activity

“It’s disheartening to read statements, like the one recently issued in the MYGALE project, attempting to criminalize our tobacco industry,” said Six Nations Chief Ava Hill. “Tobacco is a historical trade that supports the growth and economic prosperity of our communities. As sovereign Nations, the federal and provincial governments have no jurisdictional right to tax and regulate tobacco on our Territories.”

MCK Reiterates position on Membership

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

The MCK reiterates its support for the Kahnawà:ke Membership Law in light of recent events regarding non-eligible, non-Indigenous individuals residing on the Territory in clear contravention of the law.

Chief & Council have issued an Open Letter to community members to clarify the MCK’s position on the matter. Another separate Open Letter is intended for the aforementioned non-eligible persons. Both are available below.

The MCK is preparing a plan of action to help alleviate some of the difficulties that surfaced in the aftermath of a series of community-organized meetings held on this topic. The creation of a formal engagement strategy will begin at the Community Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, September 16th.

In the meantime it was felt that the community should be reminded of the origins and history of the 2003 Kahnawà:ke Membership Law, the 1984 Mohawk Law on Membership and 1981 Moratorium on Mixed Marriages. As such, a pamphlet that was prepared for the current amendment process for the 2003 Kahnawà:ke Membership Law, also available below.

Additionally, a random survey of 360 Kahnawa’kehró:non conducted in 2011 is also being made available at www.kahnawake.com for the purposes of illustrating community sentiment on the topic of Membership. In response to the question, “Should the Kahnawà:ke Membership Law allow all non-Natives married to a Member to live in Kahnawà:ke?” 263 respondents (78%) totally or somewhat disagreed, with 76 respondents (22%) agreeing, somewhat agreeing, or totally agreeing. 21 people did not offer a response to this particular question.

“While the laws have changed over the years, the community has been remarkably consistent in its support of the residency requirements,” said Grand Chief Michael Ahríhron Delisle, Jr. “Chief & Council are obligated to uphold Kahnawà:ke laws, while always being mindful that there will always be those who aren’t in favor of the law and that we must listen to their concerns and suggestions. We ask that everyone remain peaceful and respectful during this emotional time.”
