Lheidli T’enneh turn down agreement with provincial and federal governments

For the second time in 12 years, the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation have turned down a treaty offer from both the provincial and federal governments.

The proposed treaty would have provided self-governance and land and resource rights.

After five weeks of voting, 57 percent of members were against the pact when voting closed on Saturday.

The treaty offered more than 37 million dollars in capital transfer, 2.3 million in annual health and education funding, and more than 43 square kilometers of land.

Negotiations have been underway since 1993 and both parties will now return to the drawing board.
