It may be a while before the Thompson Planning District votes on whether or not to add Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN) and Tataskweyak Cree Nation (TCN) as voting members of the board.
Despite now having written support from the Pallister Government, Mayor Dennis Fenske told Arctic Radio News that the Province wants to study the proposed changes.
Fenske added that the proposal to add both NCN and TCN to the planning district will affect not only Thompson, but other planning acts and First Nations across Manitoba.
The study is being done by the the provincial government as it is their legislation that would need to be amended.
The resolution to add the two First Nations as voting members of the Planning District has been on the agenda for the last two meetings, though it was tabled both times.
