Six Nations, federal, negotiations resume Jan 28
The feds offered $26m as the value of the flooded Welland Canal lands, scrawled on a piece of paper, slid across the table with no signature and without clear rationale. It is now Six Nations counter offer that is on the table, capped at $500m, with land, compensation for land, and compensation for 'loss of use' of Welland Canal all under discussion.
Federal, provincial and Six Nations negotiators are all expected to be back at the table on Jan. 28 to resume land claims talks, Radio Station CKPC reports.Talks broke off last June. Since then, Six Nations has rejected a multi-million dollar federal offer to settle a claim related to the development of the Welland Canal. A key part of this month's meeting will be the federal response to Six Nations' rejection of that offer. http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1377517
