Update: Wahnapitae’s Community Energy Plan
As you may remember Wahnapitae is working to create a Community Energy Plan. Several of your neighbours have contributed their energy (electricity, fuel oil and propane) billing information to Marilyn. This, along with information gathered from Hydro One (electricity provider) is being used to create a community energy baseline. The baseline determines how much energy the community used from 2013 to present. This information will help us to compare the community’s energy use to the energy use in surrounding communities. As we move forward, this information can be used to measure the success of installing energy conservation measures or renewable energy projects by measuring the change in annual energy use.
Ratification of self-government agreement on education
Dear Chief Roque and members of Council:
As you are aware the Anishinbek Nation is on the final stretch to ratification of self-government agreement on education. It was years ago that Grand Council provided a mandate to negotiate and move toward restoration of jurisdiction in matters of education for our children. We have seen our negotiators work hard in the intervening years to provide us with an opportunity to make a difference for generations to come. Now is the time to stand up and declare to all who will listen that this is the right and only way for us to proceed.
In saying this I am asking you to be a champion for this agreement. Wherever the opportunity presents itself I would like you to speak on behalf of this agreement so that all of the Chiefs and Councils of communities that are in the ratification process leave no doubt about where they stand. I am still surprised at the number of our citizens that do not know of our process or how close we are to moving away from the Indian Act where education is concerned...CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING the letter from Grand Council Chief, Patrick Wedaseh Madahbee
