“One thing that police and the army know is that indigenous people don’t have any real supply of guns. The supply of guns is controlled but what the authorities don’t understand is that every one of the 633 reservations in Canada has old cars. In Winnipeg thousands of cars were being stolen every month, our indigenous youth who make up to 95% of the inmates in jail, were in criminal “training schools” on how to steal cars. If ever there was a military showdown between Indigenous people and the Canadian army, the first target would be the railway lines and burning cars would be on every railway line in Canada”

The Kenora Forestry industry has been struggling for quite a while with not only the restarting of Kenora Forest Products, but to use wood that is located on First Nations land. The province says they're encouraging Kenora Forest Products to work with First Nations, in order to obtain wood rights. Scott Cavan from the ministry of aboriginal affairs says they're seeking to identify wood supplies in local and neighbouring forests, in order to support a restart at the sawmill. The operation's been closed since 2008.
