Pembroke and all of Renfrew County must stop perpetuating the colonial settler story of nature as property or resource.

Pembroke community builders must learn from Indigenous stories about seeing nature as close family, rather than object, and meaningfully include Indigenous peoples in all land and water use decision-making processes throughout the area.
