Public Notice – Lane Closure on JC Van Horne Bridge

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government wishes to advise community members that there will be a lane closure on the JC Van Horne Bridge for repair work during the following period:

  • From Monday July 20, 2020 to Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Note that this does not change the NB Border Access Control Measures currently in place at the Campbellton side of the JC Van Horne Bridge.

During this period, a single lane will remain open with alternative traffic directed by temporary traffic lights or flag-persons.  Motorists should expect short delays. These closures will not affect cyclists or pedestrians, one sidewalk will remain open at all times. The schedule may change depending on weather conditions.

The LMG encourages community members to exercise caution when travelling on the bridge.

Due to construction on the JC Van Horne Bridge, wait time on the bridge is approximately 30 minutes. Medical Transportation is requesting that you call in advance at lease 1 hour before any appointments in Campbellton to ensure that you arrive on time.

Chief Darcy Gray’s Response to Recent NB Announcement

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Chief Darcy Gray’s Response to Recent NB Announcement

  

Friday, July 17, 2020 – The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG) is encouraged by the Premiers’ ongoing discussions surrounding the expansion of the ‘Atlantic Bubble’ and the Government of New Brunswick’s recent announcement of possibly ‘twinning’ with our community. Listuguj community members and residents have been patient and understanding throughout this process. As restrictions begin to lessen, allowing for inter-provincial travel between NB, NS, PEI, and NL, it is time to move on beyond the current restrictions imposed on Listugujewaq and Listuguj residents. We are optimistic that access will be possible as we continue to have no actives cases of COVID-19 within Gespe’gewa’gi. Soon we will be reunited with our families and loved ones once again and be able to access affordable grocery options and essential services across the river.

 

“For each of us, our number one concern has always been the safety of our People. Based on my recent discussions with Premier Higgs, I’m hopeful we can find a way forward. For that to happen, we must be willing to collaborate, have open dialogue and lead with humanity in mind. These are the fundamental principles our ‘new normal’ should be founded on, including recognizing Mi’gmaq inherent rights and rights protected in treaty, as we are the original inhabitants of these lands. Certainly, I’m concerned about the impact these restrictions will have on our relationship with our regional neighbours. Hopefully, from here on, decisions will be made with meaningful consultation, which includes consideration for our needs in accessing our territories. As a region, we cannot afford to turn back the clock on the progress we’ve made together so far,” says Chief Darcy Gray.
