Listuguj Comes to Understanding with Restigouche Camp Owners Association

 

PRESS RELEASE

 

Listuguj Comes to Understanding with Restigouche Camp Owners Association

 

August 6, 2018 (Listuguj, Quebec) – Representatives from the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government and other First Nations met with members of the Restigouche Camp Owner Association and the city of Campbellton at the Restigouche River Experience Centre.

Throughout the day the discussion was consumed with the idea of “changing the narrative”. This was agreed upon by everyone in attendance that the narrative that is described when speaking about the resources within traditional Mi’gmaq territory should include the Mi’gmaq in all relevant representation.

It was agreed upon to evaluate and review the current history that is being displayed at the Centre to include both the history of multiple generations of guides and anglers along with the history of the Mi’gmaq and Gespe’gewa’gi.

Acknowledging the darkness in our collective history is the first step to reconciliation and to ensure that history does not repeat itself.

“The discussion was a very positive one and we mutually agreed to acknowledge all aspects of our collective history and work on the best way to move forward together”, said Chief Darcy Gray.

Throughout the afternoon a great collaboration of ideas took place and there was a firm commitment to improve the current representation of the Mi’gmaq at the Restigouche River Experience Centre. In order to properly do this there will be an advisory committee put together to address this important task.

“I would like to express how delighted I am to have done this for the second consecutive year, and there have been some very concrete and substantial ideas that have been recommended and discussed”, said Edgar Cullman Chair of the Restigouche Camp Owners Association.

Listuguj Embraces New Banking Ventures

 

FOR COMMUNITY RELEASE

Listuguj Embraces New Banking Ventures

June 18, 2018, Listuguj Quebec – As an active approach to open doors for greater Economic Development in the community, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) has decided to transfer banking institutions from Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) to the Bank of Montreal (BMO).  With the process comes, not only transferring bank accounts; but also, currently mortgages, loans and lines of credit.

Throughout the years, LMG has incurred debt to provide housing to our community members.  To date, our total long-term debt is just over $12.7 million, including mortgages and lines of credit.  LMG is currently in the practice of honouring the Financial By-Law, which states under section 62 b) of the by-law, there is a requirement that reasonable notice be given to members of the community for any loan exceeding $500,000.00 and said notice has to be published in a local media followed by the community.

 

This bulletin is to notify the community that LMG is authorized to enter into an upcoming financial agreement with the Bank of Montreal in the amount of 13 million dollars for the purpose of transferring existing loans at maturity to Bank of Montreal. LMG will be moving its current debt of $12.7 million from RBC to BMO as each mortgage matures.
