Sandy Lake Chief Adam Fiddler along with Nishnawbe Aski Nation Grand Chief Stan Beardy , Koocheching Chief  William Harper and Pikangikum Chief Jonah Strang met with Queen Elizabeth II at Queens Park in Toronto on July 6th, 2010.

Chief Fiddler showed Her Majesty a duplicate copy of the Adhesion to Treaty No. Five signed by Robert Fiddler on June 9, 1910. He reminded her that First Nation people still honour, respect and hold sacred the terms of the Treaty, and enouraged Her Majesty as the reigning Crown to continue honouring the spirit and intent of the Treaty.

Chief Fiddler also carried the flag of the Union Jack that he was draped with at the 100th Anniversary of the signing of the Adhesion to Treaty No. Five on June 9, 2010.  At the time of the original Treaty Signing in 1910, Chief Robert Fiddler was similarly draped with the Union Jack to symbolize the protection of the King as part of the Treaty obligations.
