Hollow Water First Nation prepare to barricade highway

The residents of Hollow Water First Nation issued this media release at 11 p.m. last night:

We received correspondence from the Province of Manitoba Representatives which by no means addresses the concerns brought forth by the Hollow Water First Nation. Provincial Officials must realize that an area once untouched has now been possibly irreversibly damaged. In an effort to ensure Provincial Officials understand the seriousness of the situation; the Hollow Water First Nation is now prepared to deny access to the 304 Highway. This highway crosses the Hollow Water First Nation’s Traditional Area and provides access to Wanipigow Lake and the Bissett Region. As of 11:00 pm measures have been put in place to provide such a barricade.
