This week, concerns about fencing along highway 6 starting at Lone Wolf and going south were brought to the attention of the SON Environment Office.

On Thursday July 29th Councillors Sid Nadjiwon, and Nick Saunders, and Acting Chief Miptoon went to the site with Emily Martin (SON Environment Office) and Jarmo Jalava (ecologist) along with three staff from Parks Canada. We are very concerned with this fencing for a few reasons including how it will interrupt bear and deer travel from the west side of the highway to the SON Hunting Grounds. We have sent an email to the Ontario Ministry of Transport requesting a meeting and that all work stops until meaningful consultation with SON happens. The Environment Office is actively following up.

Please let Emily Martin (519-397-0849) know if you have any more information or questions about this fencing.
