KI Paddlers To Hit The Water

A team of paddlers from the northern community of KI First Nation is hitting the water to protect their watershed. The group is scheduled to leave the fly-in community Friday and will follow the ancient trading route before arriving in Fort Severn.  Richard Anderson is the Watershed Coordinator for KI and says the paddlers are united .  He says they are calling on Ontario to respect their land before it gets poisoned by mining companies.
