KEPO Seeking help from community for fish study

Friday, July 11th, 2014

The Kahnawà:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) will be conducting a summer long Fish Study and is seeking help from community members to gather information.

KEPO is aware that there is a fear in the community concerning the contamination of fish and is attempting to determine safe limits for fish consumption from local waters. This will require samples from fish caught in the community which will be analyzed at the Centre for Indigenous Peoples’ Nutrition and Environment laboratory at the MacDonald campus of McGill.

KEPO would also like to interview local fishermen and fisherwomen to determine their average fish consumption. This information will help establish the standard quantities of fish being consumed by those actively catching fish in the community.

If you are willing to participate, please call Holly McComber or Patrick Ragaz at 450-635-0600 for full details on the procedure to collect fish samples or to make an appointment for an interview.

This work will build on and update a previous effort completed in 1997. That study found that the fish in the community were generally safe to eat at the levels consumed by community members at that time. KEPO hopes to reassure the community that this is still the case.

Communications Tower for Essential Services

May 29, 2014

The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke would like to inform the community of a project between Justice Services, the Kahnawake Peacekeepers and the Community Protection Unit which will see the installation of a new communications tower to be used primarily for essential (Peacekeepers, Fire Brigade, Public Works, Capital and Medical Transport) services.

The tower will be 56 metres (180 feet) in height and be installed next to the Kahnawake Peacekeepers building. A tower of this size will provide radio coverage for the entire Territories of Kahnawà:ke and Tioweró:ton, fulfilling the communication needs of essential emergency services for the community.

“The existing antenna installations are outdated and do not fully meet the needs of the community,” said Director of Public Safety Arnold Lazare. “Communicating without the technical worry of old equipment allows us to focus on our jobs, and that’s making sure our community is safe.”

The tower will comply with health standards outlined by the Health and Safety Department of Health Canada and as part of the process, Industry Canada requires a thirty (30) day consultation period allowing residents the opportunity to share their concerns over radio broadcast waves.

Additional details on the project and information on how to provide feedback can be found online at .

The thirty (30) day consultation period ends Friday, June 27th at midnight.

First Draft of the Kahnawake Family Homes & Matrimonial Interests Law

April 23, 2014

The first draft of the proposed Kahnawà:ke Family Homes & Matrimonial Interests Law will be presented at a community consultation on Tuesday, May 27, 2014. The proposed law is to counter Canada’s Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights (S-2) legislation.

The Community Mandate to proceed with a Kahnawà:ke law was given at community consultation on September 25, 2013. Additionally, it was agreed that the law should be created using the Urgent Process of the Community Decision Making Process due to a deadline of December 16, 2014 imposed by the passage of S-2. If communities do not have their own laws in place when the law comes into force, the Federal legislation will prevail.

The Draft, as well as the Executive Summary and Information Sheet are available below for viewing prior to the consultation.
