Some good news coming out of Barriere Lake this week. Youth spokesperson Norman Matchewan was acquitted of all charges stemming from a 2009 blockade that was set up to defend the Algonquin First Nation’s territory from illegal logging. A logging company spokesperson was also perjured himself–a fact that became apparent after a video disproved one of his claims. Feeling the burden of truth on his back, the company spokesperson then admitted to another lie. A good day.
