2013 Annual Breakfast

on Thu, 07/11/2013 - 18:42

On Thursday June 27 in Flora McCrea Hall at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church, Frontiers Foundation welcomed over a hundred donors, volunteers and other guests to our traditional feast of Ojibwa pickerel and trout plus a full range of other treats.

Our Guest of Honour and Speaker was Hon. David Zimmer, Ontario’s Minister of Aboriginal Affairs. Mr. Zimmer who visited Pikangikum only two weeks ago, spoke passionately regarding the intolerable conditions there and the need for organizations like Frontiers to act. The Debestigoosh hand drummers entertained us and MC Mike McTague recognized many VIP guests like Peter Friedman’s CMHC team, Bob Haggart from CN and special Head Table guest Marni Beal-Alexander, widow of our former Patron Hon. Lincoln Alexander. Phi Kappa Pi fraternity filled up a big table with ten guests with President Chris Chan announcing a national fundraising campaign for Frontiers.

Spring Appeal 2013

Dear Friends:

By now, most Canadians and many beyond our shores have become aware of Attawapiskat’s tragic circumstances. Unfortunately, too many are not yet aware of other First Nations' communities hurting even more critically, like PIKANGIKUM. Pikangikum will continue to hold “the suicide capital of the world” title until its mortal problems are effectively and comprehensively addressed. Pikangikum needs 200 safe, warm serviced houses. For that they need portable sawmills so they can harvest their own timber and cut their own lumber. They need potable water and waste management in every home. They need cold climate agriculture with gardens, greenhouses, poultry and farm animals. Enter Frontiers Foundation/Operation Beaver. Pikangikum Working Group, with the support of Pikangikum Chief and Council, has asked us to be the Implementing Partner for a multi-year project involving all of the above.
