Rock Tour in Lanark Highlands

The Reform Gravel Mining Rock Tour continues on Saturday, September 16 in Lanark Highlands, Lanark County. Please join the Reform Gravel Mining Coalition and Friends of Lanark Highlands for what promises to be a very special event: the Paddle & Parade Party.
The event will kick off at 12 p.m. with a birch bark canoe launch and paddle around the beautiful Barbers Lake, accompanied by drumming and a pipe ceremony led by the Shabot Obaadjiwan and Snimikobi Algonquin First Nations. A piper will then lead us in a procession from the lake to the world famous Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp, where speakers and musicians will treat us to performances, including the Long Sault Trio and a very special guest appearance by Sarah Harmer!

We acknowledge that we work on the Treaty and traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Treaty 13 and the Williams Treaties, the Treaty and traditional territory of Williams Treaty Nations (Alderville, Hiawatha, Curve Lake, Hiawatha and Scugog Island, Beausoleil, Georgina Island and Rama Island First Nations). Ancestrally this territory was home to other First Nations including the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and the Pentun peoples. Today, this land is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. In addition, our work takes place nationwide, across all the Treaty and unceded lands of Turtle Island. We recognize, respect and strive to reconcile the inherent Aboriginal and Treaty rights of all the Indigenous peoples as upheld within the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Constitution of Canada.
