Greetings from your new District Governor to you friendly Rotarians. Welcome to a new Rotary fiscal year. Welcome new Presidents and your boards. We have a new Rotary International President, Jennifer Jones, our first woman in this role from Windsor, Ontario!  Happy Canada Day.
Last Thursday, guest speaker Angela Recollet, Executive Director of Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre, spoke candidly to Sunrisers about recent developments concerning the Robinson Huron Treaty Litigation Fund (RHTLF). Angela had mediated a media conference where the federal and provincial governments announced a proposed $10 billion settlement with the 21 Robinson Huron First Nations. The settlement is in relation to the Robinson-Huron Treaty of 1850 Annuities Statement of Claim, which was launched by the RHTLF in 2014, involving a claim for resource revenues. 
Under the treaty, the Crown promised to pay a perpetual annuity of $2,400, which in 1850 worked out to approximately $1.60 per person. But the annuity was not increased until 1874, despite the economic growth on the land. The $10 billion settlement is to compensate for the years the amount was never raised. 
Thank you, Angela, for sharing your insights and knowledge with us.

We meet Thursdays at 7:15am at the Northbury Hotel, 50 Brady Street, Sudbury. Guests and new members are most welcome!
