“December 16th, 2015 marks the 38th birthday of the [northern flood] agreement. And since its inception nothing much has happened but destruction and it’s the destruction that has opened up many eyes of our people.”

- Mervin Garrick, Pimicikamak Cree Nation, Cross Lake

“Island Lake is not directly affected […] with the dams, electric dams, and our elders teach us that our land is still pristine in the Island Lake communities. We still drink from the water. We’re fortunate to drink from the lake of Island Lake.”

- Byron Beardy , Island Lake
