Grand Chief Responds to Gazette Editorial by Chateauguay Mayor


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke wishes to inform the community that Grand Chief Michael Ahríhron Delisle, Jr. has responded to Chateauguay mayor Nathalie Simon’s ‘op ed’ published in the July 10th Montreal Gazette. His response, which is published in today’s Gazette, addresses several inconsistencies included in her article.

The response can be viewed online at The Gazette.

“We have no choice but to respond to Ms. Simon’s article,” said Chief Delisle. “Decisions should always be made based on accurate information – there is no room for revisionist history.”

The four mayors of the Roussillon, which surround Kahnawà:ke, announced on June 26th that they were taking legal action to block the recent Quebec government decree that confirmed the return of certain lands adjacent to Highways 30/730 that are contiguous to Kahnawà:ke. This has been the first-ever significant return of land to the community.
