A rally was held Wednesday outside Montreal’s main courthouse.

That’s where supporters of the Algonquins from the Parc de la Verendrye region are fighting a logging company that is clear cutting without consulting them.

Two elders were recently arrested for blocking an entrance to the forest. The elders said the area is known for its wildlife and plants that are used for traditional medicine.
