NPLRA members may recall that there was a fair bit of media coverage about the Wild Rice situation in Pigeon Lake last summer and fall. Recently, your Board of Directors contacted the Trent-Severn Waterway (Parks Canada) to get more information. Parks Canada got back to us and indicated that they are committed to maintaining up to date information on the Parks Canada Website about the ongoing consultations between Parks Canada and the First Nations regarding Wild Rice, as it becomes available.
If members have any immediate questions or concerns regarding Wild Rice, Parks Canada encourages you to contact them at Ont.Trensevern@pc.gc.ca or to contact Beth McEachern at 705-750-4924.
Parks Canada indicates that they “very much appreciate being able to work with stakeholders such as yourselves in the on-going management of the Trent-Severn Waterway.”
