Some Boys Named Sue

Sing it, Johnny!

Johnny: naw, I’m gonna do one of them talkin’ things over music. Hit it!

Seems the Algonquins never ceded their land,

but the governments using it’s dirty hands.

To let uranium mining and more…

like weapons testing at Ontario’s door.

It’s pretty ugly with them good ole boys,

their blasting weapons and bastard toys.

There’s one thing you should know bout who’s who,

them good ole boys are all named Sue.


MNN. July 24, 2007. The colonizers are using a new weapon
for Indigenous destruction. Law suits. Doesn’t “No mean
no”? Canada and Frontenac Ventures have devised new
tricks and donned new masks. They figure if they can sue
then they can take away our lands.

On July 23rd 2007 they punched us in the face by handing
the Algonquins a million dollar lawsuit. Canadian colonial
institutions are being used as a tool to assault us.
Remember, the Algonquins never consented to the
trespassing that’s happening on their land.

Sharbot and Ardoch Lakes are 42 miles north of Kingston
Ontario Canada. The Algonquins rejected Frontenac’s
financial offer last week of $10,000 to dig up uranium to
contaminate and desecrate the land, air, water, animals
and people. They were told that soon an injunction will
remove us from our own land.

The 55 acres at the gate is supposedly private land owned
by Peter Jorgenson who leased an office to Frontenac
Ventures. Frontenac merely has permits from Ontario to
stake mining claims on unsurrendered Algonquin land, as
well as private land.

The Algonquins are supposedly represented by lawyers,
Blaine McMurtry, of Toronto. What are they doing? We are
not told anything! The Canadian crown claims jurisdiction
over the area. Shouldn’t Affairs be protecting the area
according to Canadian legislation and Supreme Court of
Canada jurisprudence. We know that’s a joke! Indian Affairs
has a long history of helping to destroy and steal Indigenous
land, resources and rights. Indian Affairs is right in there
now punching us without a velvet glove.

The Algonquins refused to come under the Indian Act.
They remain free and independent, to be dealt with on a
nation-to-colony basis. The land is unsurrendered and
remains unceded. The Algonquins are not Canadian
citizens. This is all verified by international law. The
Canadian government represents the corporate interests,
against us.

All it takes is for a greedy corporation to persuade one
department to give them a license to exploit Indigenous
land that doesn’t belong to Canada. All the other
departments will fight tooth and nail to defend this theft.
We can’t think of a single time when the Department of
Justice took our part against a corporate predator.

Another dirty player on Algonquin land is MREL [Mining
Resources Engineering Limited], a manufacturer and
tester of weapons. It has a unique “secret” facility in
a “remote location” on Algonquin land. We know all
about it!

Has anyone noticed that there’s been a sudden burst
of spending on the military even though war is illegal
in international law? Canada is under no war threat.
No attempts are being made to solve disputes by peaceful
means. The UN has been turned into a “war machine”.
Canada is an eager little “go for” for these totalitarian
schemes. The military siphons money away from
education, health care and much needed repair of
infrastructure for public health and safety.

Canada has opened up our land to any country or anybody
who wants to do military testing. We are set up to be used
as “guinea pigs” for these tests! The public says nothing
because they are too scared and too shocked.

Canada is trying to seduce a new generation into their
lethal games. Tey’re suckering the children of the poor
into sacrificing their lives to lower the population of
“useless eater”, as Henry Kissinger called us. They’re
trying to convince us it’s glorious to “self-destruct”.

The Department of National Defense Canada and the
DRDC [Defense Research and Development Canada]
are doing studies on the effects of weapons on people,
animals, land, water and air. CRTI is the umbrella
organization [“Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear
Explosives Research and Technology Initiatives”] that
includes 21 agencies and departments, including Atomic
Energy, Health Canada, CSIS and Natural Resources.

MREL makes and tests radon equipment and weapons
of mass destruction on Algonquin land, like RDDs and IEDs,
which are “dirty bombs” made from uranium tailings or
medical grade radio active materials. Who’s the “Chemical
Ali” of Canada? Gordon O’Connor, the Member of Parliament
of the area and the Minister of Defense? Are they nuking
settlers who don’t vote for them?

These losers don’t know how to make a living without killing,
molesting or preying on their fellow human beings. Go to
the DRDC website for all the connections with the worldwide
military industry at

MREL is a very private company that does contracts for the
U.S. Department of Defense Navy, Army and Air Force and
who knows who else. Bill Bauer, the Vice President “front
man”, doesn’t answer any questions.

MREL is busy showing off their explosive and weapons technology
at the “Force Protection Equipment Demonstration” in Stafford
Virginia U.S. Also there are exhibitors like “SAIC”, “Raytheon”
and “RedX Defense”
[We want to reassure our readers that this has nothing to do with
our Sage “Red-X”, though they may have been reading MNN and
want to stop our peace mongering against their bombs!] Look for
an article on MREL at, a trade magazine on
weaponry development for terrorism worldwide.

These companies are all up to their necks in Algonquin land
without any permission or authority. Their presence is based
entirely on colonial bluff.

We aren’t sure if MREL is banned from going around on our land.
The OPP told Frontenac’s George White and Pete Jorgensn to stay
away. Uranium companies exploring in the Athabaskan basin oil
sands in Alberta are using helicopters to fly in their heavy exploration
and drilling equipment, which is a technical possibly that could be
done here on our land.

MREL boasts of having a “remote location” to do its
experimentation, development and testing. They’re hoping that
the Indigenous protests will disappear because they’re farther
from major universities, military and population centers. These
guys are playing hard ball. They are starting to manufacture
“red neck” opposition to our attempts to defend the peace and
sanity of the land.

It’s just a matter of time before the OPP have to “uphold their rule
of law” and enforce the injunction. The OPP work with DRDC by
keeping a consistent presence at the Robertsville Mine. They
know how isolated this territory is and how many people are there.

Port Hope near Toronto is where the uranium waste is being
stored. This was closed a few days ago due to “seepage”.
The Algonquins of Sharbot Lake are feeling the pressure.

Janie Jamieson asked, “Please send in whatever you can as
soon as possible: water, gas, food, disposable cameras, socks,
bug spray, candles, eating utensils and any type of camping supplies.
Help is urgently needed for our well being and protection”.

The Algonquins, our supporters and the local residents are demanding
“No uranium mining whatsoever” on our land. “The testing of the IEDs
and RDDs and nuclear weaponry has to stop”. We’re not allowed to
burn a tire and look what they’re blowing up practically in our faces.
We face birth defects, permanent DNA damage, leukemia and cancer
to present and future generations living in the area. For the sake of the
earth and the future generations, we have to mobilize now to stop this
insane nonsense.

The 20th century tactic was to claim our lands were needed for
military defense. The 21st century tactic is to use their courts to sue
us with their colonial laws that are made up as they go along, in the
name of democracy, but in violation of democratic principles.

    Please remove my name and contact information from this post. It was posted without my permission. The person who is posting this material is not from the Ardoch Algonquin or Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nations, who are the ones stationed at the protest site in Frontenac County. Some of the information in this and other postings, is false as it is secondhand and much of it is inflammatory. This does not help the Algonquin cause. If you would like to know what is really going on, I can send you a statement from the Chiefs of the Algonquin Alliance.

    Thank you for your attention,

    Algonquin Alliance Statement Against Uranium Exploration and Mining

    July 24, 2007

    On June 28, 2007 leadership and members of Ardoch Algonquin First Nation and Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nation moved to secure the site of a proposed uranium mine in the traditional lands of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation near Ardoch Ontario. Frontenac Ventures Corporation, under the ownership of George White had been notified by mail to vacate the premises prior to the 28th with his equipment and staff. On the 28th members of the two Algonquin communities moved in and secured the site to prevent the drilling of uranium core samples which were slated to begin the following week.

    Upon securing the site, the two communities established an alliance whose overall purpose was to prohibit access to the site and any proposed drilling within and around the site and all associated sites by Frontenac Ventures Corporation. The Algonquin alliance discovered through an initial search that multiple users had been granted access to the site and land surrounding the site by the MNR, Mining and Northern Development and private owners. At no time did any of these ministries or private owners contact or secure permission from Algonquin people to use the lands or resources in question. In fact, while Algonquin people in the area had heard rumours of a proposed uranium mine in Frontenac County, we were not aware of the plans to develop a mine on our traditional territory until Gloria Morrison, a private land owner in the region, attended a council meeting and asked for the Ardoch Algonquin council’s help in protecting her property. Gloria came to the meeting because 60 acres of her 100 acre holding had been staked by Frontenac Ventures under the Mining Act. She had exhausted all other alternatives at that point and hoped that Algonquin people could help her as she understood that the land she had purchased was in the historical territory of Algonquin people.

    As already mentioned the overall purpose of the Algonquin alliance is to prohibit access to the site and any proposed drilling within and around the site and all associated sites. This includes sites that are privately owned and leased to Frontenac Ventures Corporation as this usage is against the Original Teachings and Guiding Principles which provide the guidance necessary to live within Mino-Pimaadiziwin (which means to live the good life, in a balanced way that promotes the sustainability of the Natural World and all living entities). The alliance is using a four-pronged approach to dealing with uranium exploration and mining which includes education of the larger community on the dangers of uranium exploration and mining and direct action in various locations in Algonquin territory to bring local, national and international attention to the issue. The two Algonquin communities who make up this alliance are also concerned with their responsibility as Anishinaabe people to examine prior usage of the land and resources by all users who have been granted access by the province of Ontario. Part of that strategy is to develop sound mechanisms for restoring balance to the land and waterways that have been impacted by their activities on the land and also create protocols of interaction that can be used with future users so that the same mistakes do not occur again.

    The alliance also has to deal with the other users who were granted access to our territory through the province. One such user is MREL. MREL is a company that has moved heavily into the defence and security industry, and in particular the development of a range of vehicle disrupters which are used to neutralize improvised explosive devises and bomb laden vehicles, placed in anything from regular automobiles up to tractor trailer sized trucks. The units are robot deployed and designed to minimize collateral damage. The thrust of their work is humanitarian with an emphasis on saving lives, both by countering the threat of bombs in the civilian community, as well as to improve the defence capability of Canadian troops.

    As MREL’s current contract is designed to save lives, and not connected to the drilling of core samples or uranium mining, the alliance has made the decision to permit MREL to enter the site under a memorandum of understanding between MREL and Ardoch and Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nations. The memorandum of understanding will cover only the current project related to their research on vehicle disrupters. It will cover the nature of required clean-up from previous MREL work, set out the protocols for relating to the land in a way that promotes balanced relationships with the land and waterscapes, while also enabling MREL to complete the project in the designated timeframe. Any other usage of the site by MREL would have to be renegotiated. The MOU will also address the issue of securing the site while MREL is conducting their research. MREL has also come out openly against George While and Frontenac Ventures Corporation and has provided the alliance with numerous documents, maps, and correspondence that supports our position against uranium mining.

    The alliance is also concerned with a new tendency on the part of some individuals to treat this site as a tourist attraction. The articulation of our autonomy here is a serious issue for both Ardoch Algonquin First Nation and for Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nation. We have secured the area for the sole purpose of preventing the drilling of core samples which would lead to the development of a uranium mine on our traditional territory. Securing the area means literally keeping everyone out unless they have been invited to enter at the main gate where the encampment is located. This policy is necessary to secure the safety of everyone, inside and outside the gate. The entire parameter has been secured through the use of warriors to prevent access to Frontenac Venture Corporation and no one should enter the site as you could be seen as working for FVC. This encampment and occupation of the surrounding land and watersheds is part of an ongoing resistance on the part of these two First Nations to resist the attempts of Frontenac Ventures Corporation to drill core samples, it should respectfully not be treated as a tourist attraction.

    The Algonquin alliance and resistance force is being assisted by CCAMU, Mining Watch, and other environmental and citizenship groups who are opposed to uranium mining. Many of the individuals involved in the various groups have had their own property staked under the Mining Act by Frontenac Ventures Corporation. While Algonquin people are concentrating on direct actions that articulate our autonomy in the valley of the Kiji Sìbì (which is a necessary component in the overall efforts to prevent uranium exploration and mining on our traditional lands), our non-Aboriginal friends and neighbours have renewed ancient relationships with the Algonquin people and communities here and have taken up once again their side of the wampum belt that was neglected long ago by their ancestors. Their efforts to create and disperse important information on the Mining Act and impacts of uranium mining have gone a long way in gaining outside support for our struggle to stop Frontenac in their tracks. Our non-Aboriginal neighbours have also created a network of support for the Algonquin and other Aboriginal communities who remain on the site behind the gate. This network of concerned friends and neighbours have taken it upon themselves to make sure that the people who remain there have the food, supplies, and necessities needed to maintain the occupation until a positive resolution can be achieved. Both Algonquin communities, as well as the other Aboriginal people at the site greatly appreciate the dedication and sacrifices made by everyone who has supported and continues to support our efforts to stop the proposed uranium exploration and mining on Algonquin land and that of our neighbours.

    Direct Action

    The alliance has taken several direct actions in the past few weeks to draw attention to the issue including two protest marches down Highway 7 in Sharbot Lake. The next direct action will take place on July 28 in Perth. Those wishing to participate in the action should meet at the lot behind Wendys at 3pm. This particular action will take place at two spots on Highway 7. There will be pylons inserted into the middle of the road to slow it down to two lanes. We will be setting up information tolls at each end of Perth on Highway 7. Cars will be allowed to travel but at a much slower pace which will permit us to provide info on the issue and also ask for donations which are needed to sustain the resistance force at the site and to pay for legal fees. We will need volunteers to stand at each end of the highway with picket signs and eight people to work the information toll. We will maintain the information toll from 3pm-6pm. We will continue to plan such actions on Highway Seven moving next to Carleton Place and eastward……eventually reaching Ottawa if necessary.

    Legal Strategy

    The Algonquin alliance has secured the legal services of Chris Reid, who is an expert on Aboriginal rights and law. Chris is working from the legal standpoint that Algonquin people never surrendered our lands and thus our autonomy and jurisdiction remain intact in the areas in which Frontenac Ventures Corporation has staked and plans to drill core samples. The details of that strategy need to remain confidential, but we will keep you updated on the progress made.

    Response from Frontenac Ventures Corporation

    Frontenac Ventures Corporation has responded to our protest in a variety of ways, including issuing a statement in the Globe and Mail wherein Frontenac’s CEO George White suggested that perhaps companies in Canada should utilize paramilitary forces such as those used in Africa (if you have seen Blood Diamond you will get the idea) to protect mining interests from people such as ourselves, which he equated with terrorism. In a meeting held last week, White’s lawyer said several nasty things about our Mohawk allies and asked point blank if there were Mohawk warriors on the premises. White also promised swift legal action against us at that meeting and has followed through with that threat as we have been told that he has filed a 77 million dollar law suit against the two Algonquin communities here and their associated leaders. While a security force showed up at several points today trying to serve the notice, no one accepted it and they will now deliver it to our legal team which is being led by Chris Reid out of Toronto.


    Given the length of time we will need to maintain the occupation of our lands and the nature of the legal issues, we will need to implement and maintain various fundraising initiatives and activities over the next few months. Frank Morrison, who alerted us to the activities of Frontenac Ventures Corporation, is in the process of organizing a major benefit concert to take place in Carleton Place which will help in that regard, as will the one that is scheduled for Weds in Sharbot Lake. If you are not able to come and stand with us on the ground here please get involved in organizing fundraising activities to support our efforts here and what will be undoubtedly a lengthy and costly legal battle. All funds raised can be dropped off at the gate or mailed to 1045 Canoe Lane Ardoch, ON. Please specify that mailed funds go to fight uranium mining and the efforts of the Algonquin people occupying the site. If you are not able to get involved in the organization of fundraising activities, please consider dropping off or sending in your donation to support this important issue. Uranium exploration and mining will destroy our traditional territory and make it impossible to live off the land or to maintain our responsibilities to the land and waterways. We are doing this for the benefit of your children and grandchildren, so that they will have a future as Algonquin people.
