Lise Hansen, senior negotiator for the Ministry of Indigenous Affairs, held an open house at La Place Rendez Vous last Wednesday to discuss the Rainy Lake First Nation Flooding Claims. She spoke about the Ontario government’s proposal to amend the boundary of the Rainy Lake Island Conservation Reserve. The federal and provincial governments currently are negotiating flooding claims with five Treaty #3 First Nations, involving nine reserves on Rainy Lake and the Seine River.
