MCK issues Info Sheet regarding controversial Canadian S-2 legislation


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) wishes to advise the community that it has issued an Information Sheet in regard to Canada’s recently-passed Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act (usually referred to as S-2).

The Information Sheet (titled “Notice from the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke regarding Canada’s ‘S-2’ legislation”) is being made available in order to help illustrate the MCK’s concerns regarding the new legislation and to actively encourage Kahnawa’kehró:non to support the effort to create a Kahnawà:ke law that will supersede S-2. Additional information, surveys and in-person kiosks are planned throughout the summer in order for the community to gain a better understanding of S-2 and its implications.

The single-page document (see PDF) will be delivered to community members via Canada Post early next week. Those who wish to view it immediately can do so by visiting the website.

The MCK earlier announced that it will be approaching the community to give the mandate to use the ‘Urgent Law-Making Provisions’ in the Community Decision Making Process to begin the creation of a Kahnawà:ke law. S-2 will come into force sometime in 2014.

Questions or concerns should be brought to the attention of Chiefs Clinton Phillips or Lloyd Phillips at 450-632-7500.
