Grand River Mohawks Send City of Brantford’s Massive Debt to Collections: $734+ Billion in Delinquent Lease Arrears to be Collected by Chicago-based Collector

Today, the Grand River Mohawks announced a debt which they have been attempting to draw attention to – and collect on – for years (owed to them by the City of Brantford) has now been placed in collections with a Chicago-based commercial collection specialist for immediate collection.  The arrears figure of $250 billion has been accruing interest since it was acknowledged by Mayor Taylor on April 19, 1994 and now sits at more than $724 billion (including 6 % interest compounded annually).

Speaking from Kanata Village, Jason Bowman, Special Assistant to Bill Squire confirmed the historic move to CTV news earlier today.

It is regrettable that the City’s leadership has demonstrated such contempt for the Mohawk Workers and our Chief.  The city, including Mayor Friel, Councillors Wrobel & Carpenter, and some staff elected to belittle and diminish the seriousness of what the Mohawks have been trying to say for far too long.  Perhaps now, the City will take their debt obligations to the Grand River Mohawks more seriously and cease from defrauding us – and others.  I feel badly for those represented by such belligerent and reckless leaders.  Indeed, the City’s failure to accept the many opportunities presented to it have now forced us to forward this significant account to a third party (professional) commercial collector based in Chicago.  This is a sad day for the City of Brantford, but marks a new era for Indigenous people standing up for themselves and taking the matters of monies owed to them to the next level.” – Jason Bowman (for Bill Squire)
