Our Camp is peaceful and driven solely to recover the remains of our loved ones.
As days progressed, things were made clear to us. Initially, our anger at the report that the Winnipeg Police would not search for our loved ones was overbearing. The police said it was not feasible to conduct a search. This news created a question, and the answer was that our Indigenous sisters were not important enough. This lack of police effort led to the initiation of Camp Morgan.
First Nation Indigenous Warriors and the Harris family have been at the front lines each day, fighting every level of government and the Winnipeg Police to conduct the search.
A feasibility study has been conducted, and the outcome states that searching at Prairie Green Landfill is feasible. Funding for the search still needs to be guaranteed. There is no feasibility study currently being conducted to search Brady Landfill. We are told that once the search at the Prairie Green Landfill starts, a feasibility study for the Brady Landfill will start.
On July 5, 2023, Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson announced the Manitoba government would not fund the search, citing possible health risks to search team members.
Camp Morgan is still at Brady Landfill to ensure this search is completed. If not, we must resort to further measures to ensure it is searched. We hope that we can get both Brady and Prairie to move operations to new ground, erect monuments and turn the existing landfills into areas where we can visit our relatives who are still there. Please remember that we believe there are remains there that we will not be able to locate. Remember that there are remains there that might have completely turned to dust. Remember that our people have been getting killed off for centuries. It is up to us to remember all these genocides.
