Huron Wendat nation disturbed by desecration of burial site in Barrie
The City of Barrie says it will meet with Huron-Wendat Grand Chief Konrad Sioui to discuss the possible desecration of indigenous human remains found during the construction of the Allandale Go Station lands in Barrie.
APTN National News reported that the station was constructed on a place known to the Huron Wendat nation to be a traditional burial ground site.
The City of Barrie said in a statement they are taking the concerns of the Huron Wendat nation very seriously but that there are currently no outstanding archaeological issues with the site.
The Huron-Wendat Nation has requested an independent investigation into the possible desecration of ancestral remains during construction of the Go Station platform.
