 Groups across Canada are calling on CN Rail to drop its injunction against Grassy Narows Clan Mother Judy Da Silva. Fifty Grassy Narrows people and supporters held a water ceremony near the CN track to protect against the threat of a spill of oil or other toxics that could contaminate Grassy Narrows’ water.  The CN line forms the southern boundary of Grassy Narrows Territory and runs directly beside a number of lakes.
