Highway 290 blockade ends

CTV Winnipeg, May 14, 2016

Officials from the Fox Lake Cree Nation have confirmed that a blockade on Highway 290 has ended.

A group of protestors had been blocking three Manitoba Hydro sites, claiming that hydro workers destroyed a sacred ceremonial site.

Chief Walter Spence said Manitoba Hydro has committed to work together with the Fox Lake Cree Nation, and rebuild the site.

The protest ended around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. A Manitoba Hydro spokesperson said the company is disheartened the sacred site was damaged.

Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson confirmed the end of the blockade on twitter Saturday.
