Gambler First Nation (MTN)-A Land and Resource Council meeting held at Gambler First Nation was the first of it’s kind held on reserve involving any outside organization according to the band’s chief David Ledoux.
“We were pleased to have this happen on our reserve,” said Ledoux. “This is the first time we have had any organization come here and hold meetings so we’re very happy with that.”
“We haven’t had AMC or SCO here so having Treaty 2 here shows interest,” he added.
The regular meeting was held in the community to increase participation of Treaty 2 membership in the activities of their government and to develop community relations.
The agenda covered land protection, flood protection, wildlife and forestry management and included important updates on the train derailment that happened in late February near St. Lazare, Manitoba which saw 37 cars derail and spilled 820,000 litres of crude oil onto the land.
New business tabled included a water diversion from Saskatchewan’s Blackbird Creek which will flood lands in Treaty 2 territory on the Manitoba side of the provincial border.
