1 Niagara Reinforcement Line Vol. No: 115 Niagara Reinforcement Line (NRL) (Submitted by SN Dev. Corp.) The movement to stop the NRL project will cause financial damages of not less than $46 Million to the Six Nations Community over the next 40+ years. These funds would have been 1) distributed to the Economic Development Trust for investment into community priorities; 2) used to enhance community owned infrastructure, and / or; 3) reinvested into new business to create additional value for the Six Nations People. As of March 1, 2019, the disruption has caused $1 Million in added project expense, and each month the project is delayed Six Nations loses $93,000 in profit. This disruption was done without fully understanding the risks and involved no community discussion. The reckless actions of a few have damaged the reputation of Six Nations, the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) and our Aecon- Six Nations (A6N) partnership. With no NRL we will have less jobs for our skilled workforce (30 less employees at A6N), and if the project is not completed the community will lose upwards of $100 Million in benefits. Even worse, the work stoppage presents new challenges to our future it sends the message that Six Nations is not able to cooperate for the greater good. The impact of this is beyond calculation. Continued on page 2 March 2019

2 2 From front: Niagara Reinforcement Line (NRL) - (SN Dev. Corp.) Below is a breakdown of the three stages of the NRL project and the benefits to Six Na ons. Phase 1) Construct and Connect A6N is a construc on business jointly owned by our community under SNGRDC and Aecon Group. The workers are mostly Six Na ons community members and their job is to do the work to complete the NRL so that Hydro One can send power through the line. a. Profits made by A6N go to the Economic Development Trust. The Trust then distributes those funds to community priori es b. The NRL work will provide a big opportunity for our workers to gain valuable experience in the energy industry this could mean more jobs in the future for A6N c. Most importantly, the project presents an opportunity for A6N to become known as a company that can get the job done Phase 2) Ownership On behalf of community, SNGRDC will buy 25% ownership in the NRL funded by the $12.5 Million secured from SNEC via the Casino Agreement. a. When the NRL is complete, Six Na ons will buy 25% of the line. This will mean that we will receive 25% of the profits for the life of the line which is about 48 years b. We will invest $12.5 Million to buy our 25% share. Once power starts moving in the line, our investment value will grow to $19 Million c. The NRL will provide our community with a stable income of $950,000 per year. This means that our community will get nearly $46 Million over 48 years. Phase 3) Future Development Six Na ons secures a 300 Megawa energy capacity set aside from Ontario. This means we control a large amount of energy to be used in crea ng future projects. a. If the NRL is completed as planned we will have a strong voice in who uses the line and energy projects around the Six Na ons territory. b. Development of 300 megawa s of energy represents $1 Billion+ of new investment in our projects, as well as new skills for our workforce and more employment opportuni es. c. We are aware that the new Ontario government has shut down some energy projects, but our contract is protected. If the government shuts down this set aside commitment we will receive $15 million dollars from Ontario. This would cover our ini al investment and our costs.

6 Cannabis Update 6 Six Nations Elected Council Passes Cannabis Law On February 25th, 2019 the Six Nations Elected Council passed the Cannabis Law after receiving feedback gathered from a number of community engagement sessions over the fall and winter months of The passing of this law is aimed at providing health, wellness and safety for all members of Six Nations of the Grand River while securing economic sovereignty leading to the prosperity of present and future generations. As we move to transition to the next steps a community driven commission will be created. The community cannabis commission will be responsible for overseeing the implementation, and community interaction of this now passed law. This law will be open to future revisions as it will be an additional responsible of the commission to review the law and amend accordingly on an annual basis. If you are interested in copies of the Six Nations Cannabis Law, they will be available at the Six Nations administrative building Watch the Chiefs Update on our Youtube Channel Six Nations Elected Council

10 10 March 2019 SNEC Updates by Chief G. Ava Hill SIX NATIONS DAYS AT QUEEN S PARK: Six Nations Elected Council and the Senior Administration Team recently held Six Nations Days at Queen s Park March 6-7, We set up several meetings with Cabinet Ministers and MPPs to introduce them to our community and to begin to establish a relationship with this new Government. We also met with several Opposition Party MPPs. We met with the following Cabinet Ministers: Attorney General Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Finance Vic Fedeli, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Steven Clark, the President of the Treasury Board, Peter Bethlenfalvy, the Minister of Tourism, Sports and Culture Michael Tibollo, Minister of Infrastructure Monte MacNaughton and the Minister of Environment Rod Phillips. We also got the chance to have a few minutes with the Minister of Health Christine Elliott, who we ran into in the hallway. We also met with the Opposition Leader, Andrea Horwath and several of the NDP MPPs. Additionally, we met with former Premier Kathleen Wynne and former Minister Michael Coteau. We also met with Mike Schreiner of the Green Party and several MPPs from across the Province. We did have the opportunity to attend Question Period in the Legislature and were acknowledged several times by various Members. This political lobbying does pay off as we have already received word that the funding for various programs at the Justice Department will continue for another year. As well, we received funding from the Ministry of Transportation for the rehabilitation of another bridge. We held a Meet and Greet Breakfast which was attended by several other MPPs. Minister of Indigenous Services, Greg Rickford, and his staff, along with the Leaders of the NDP, Liberal and Green Parties all attended the Breakfast and brought greetings and pledged to work with Six Nations. It was an excellent two days at Queen s Park and Six Nations presence was certainly felt by the MPPs. Special thanks to Brant MPP, Will Bouma, who sponsored the room for our breakfast and encouraged the other MPPs to meet with us. After the Breakfast, I took part in a press conference with NDP MPP, Sol Mamakwa, who is an Indigenous person from Northern Ontario. He was presenting a Private Member s Bill to get the Ontario Government to endorse the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and he asked me to join him and say a few words, which I was happy to do.

11 Social Services Notice: Youth Culture Camps are happening March 29 to 31, 2019 Activities to include: A Social, Fun & Creative Workshops, Preparing a Feast for Parents and Elders. For further information call Barb: ext.: 4247 or Lyme Disease & West Nile Virus: What You Need to Know (Education Series 2019) In preparation for the spring and summer of 2019, an education series will be provided to the community through the Six Nations Elected Council Newsletter; ending with a community education event in April In the January 2019 newsletter, we learned that Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi, and its an infectious disease spread through the bite of infected mosquito that has fed on an infected bird. The March 2019 Newsletter information will highlight the signs and symptoms of the disease and the factors placing people at high risk. The final April 2019 Newsletter will offer treatment information and important prevention tips for you and your family members. Lyme Disease: West Nile Virus: Symptoms of Lyme disease can be different from person to person. Early signs and symptoms of Lyme disease usually start 3 to 30 days after being bitten by an infected blacklegged tick. Most people experience mild flu-like symptoms soon after being bitten, while a small number may have more serious symptoms, sometimes weeks after the bite. Early signs and symptoms of Lyme disease may include: Rash, sometimes shaped like a bull s eye Fever, chills, headache, fatigue Muscle and joint aches, swollen lymph nodes If left untreated, more severe symptoms may occur and can last from months to years. Severe symptoms may include: Sever headaches, rashes shaped like bull s eye Facial paralysis (i.e. Bell s palsy)- Intermittent muscle, joint, tendon and bone aches Heart disorders (heart palpitations, abnormal heartbeat), known as Lyme carditis. Neurological disorders (dizziness, mental confusion or inability to think clearly, and memory loss, inflammation of the brain and spinal cord, nerve pain, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet) Arthritis with severe joint pain and swelling, particularly the knees and less commonly in other joints such as the ankles, elbow and wrists. In rare cases, Lyme disease can lead to death usually because of complications involving infection of the heart. The risk of getting a tick bite starts when the weather warms up in the spring, through until the fall. Ticks can also be active in the winter, if the winter is mild and there is not much snow. However, the greatest risk occurs during the spring and summer months. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Most people (70% to 80%) who are infected with West Nile virus have no symptoms. Some people have mild symptoms that can take up to 1 week to resolved; and they include: Fever, headache, body aches, mild rash, swollen lymph glands. First symptoms usually appear within 2 to 15 days after infection and anyone infected with West Nile virus can be at risk of developing more sever symptoms and health effects. Adults 50 years or older and those with underlying conditions or weaker immune systems, however, are at greater risk. Very few people (fewer than 1% of people infected with the virus) will develop severe symptoms and health effects that may last for many months to years after the initial illness. In many of these cases, the infection can affect the central nervous system (this is the nervous system tissues in the brain and spinal cord). Some severe cases of disease can be fatal. Serious symptoms can include: Rapid onset of severe headache, high fever, stiff neck, nausea or vomiting (sometimes both), difficulty swallowing, drowsiness and confuse Neurological symptoms include: Loss of consciousness, lack of coordination, muscles weakness, paralysis SAVE THE DATE: Lyme disease & West Nile Virus Education Wednesday April 17, Six Nations Community Hall. 5:00 PM, Presentations 6:00 to 8:00 11
