Chief Darcy Responds to Mini Bubble

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government is encouraged with the outcome of discussions held between Premier Blaine Higgs and Chief Darcy Gray. Effective August 1, 2020, Listuguj community members and residents will once again be able to reunite with their families, access affordable food options, and access our traditional and ancestral lands.

“Regaining access is a positive first step. I’m happy with the outcome of the discussions held between myself, the Premier and his office over the course of the past few weeks. I’m optimistic that moving forward our governments will continue to work collaboratively on issues that adversely impact Listugujewaq, including access to our traditional and ancestral lands,” says Chief Darcy Gray.

From the outset, our government has been committed to doing things differently. Communications, relationship building and open dialogue is our foundation. We look forward to working collaboratively with the rest of the region, and are encouraged by the dialogue and efforts already happening to ensure a safe transition for our students attending Sugarloaf Senior High School in the Fall.
