G&R Recyclage - Robert and Gary Gabriel

Traces of contaminants, including PCBs, have been discovered in the water near a dump in Kanesatake. Opened in 2015 as a recycling center for construction and demolition debris, it has accumulated mountains of industrial garbage on a strip of Mohawk land.
The Ministry of the Environment no longer sets foot there at the demand of the president of the company, Robert Gabriel. Among the clauses of the 30 year contract signed by Robert and Gary Gabriel, the Mohawk Council allows them to operate on Mohawk land "as long as they respect the terms of the contract". The site is packed with 17 times the amount of waste it's permitted for.

In 2020, the Ministry revoked the company's license and cracked down on truckers dumping loads. The traffic stopped, but the waste remains. Reports outline PCBs, E. coli and hydrogen sulfide. Brothers Robert and Gary Gabriel were members of the Warriors during the 1990 Oka crisis. In 2005, they were convicted of forcible confinement and participation in a riot, after the house of Grand Chief James Gabriel and the headquarters of the local police station burned down. At trial Robert Gabriel was described as the head of the "very violent" organization.
