Attached is a copy of a presentation which Henry Hogg, Reeve of Addington Highlands (AH) presented to David Zimmer, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs of Ontario as it relates to the Algonquin Land Claim. At our 2013 AGM meeting, we provided a basic overview of the Algonquin Land Claims and talked about some recent interactions by the government. A table was posted at the meeting with some maps and printed material. As well, we posted some general links to various articles on our website.
By posting this latest presentation, the MPOA is merely providing further information as we get it. It is not our intent to make comment but rather show to the residents / cottagers of AH that the township is taking an active interest in these complex issues. This was an initiative of AH and was presented in person to the minister. Should the Minister provide a response, refute or correct any mistakes/misunderstandings or to explain differing government positions, we will make every attempt to also post this.
Here is a link to an article written in the online Frontenac News on this topic: http://www.frontenacnews.ca/2014/14-04_jan_30/14-04_land_claim.html
