Once Ottawa’s premiere tourist attraction (“a second Niagara”), Chaudière Falls is an impressive waterfall whose internal architecture features a swirling vortex of water at its base. There are 10 reasons to oppose the proposed commercial development at this sacred site on the Ottawa River.

All Canadians can choose to stand in solidarity with Algonquin/Anishinaabeg nations opposing the Dream Corp./Windmill mega-project at Chaudière Falls. These islands and the waters around them must remain a public space open to all nations, as evoked by the late Kitigan Zibi elder William Commanda. Based on principles of justice.
