A group of 15 youth from the Skownan First Nation will arrive in Winnipeg today to protest against Bill C-45.
Led by 15-year-old Victor Thomas, the delegation left their community on February 15 to make the 320 kilometre journey along Highway 6 to the city.
Skownan youth are most concerned on what the piece of federal legislation means to Canadian waterways, lakes and rivers, and environmental protection.
“These young people, showing great leadership and bravery, should be commended for doing their part in protecting Mother Earth,” said Skownan First Nation Chief Cameron Catcheway.
The group will arrive on the steps of the Manitoba legislature at 2 p.m.
