The Thompson Local News

A man is on his way to Winnipeg from Leaf Rapids to raise awareness for a northern First Nation.


33-year-old David Bighetty’s trek will end at the Manitoba Legislature, and he hopes to raise awareness about the community of Granville Lake.


Bighetty, who has been living in Leaf Rapids since an evacuation of his home in 2003, says that many former Granville Lake residents are waiting for financial compensation, and that some are still paying rent on properties they haven’t lived in for over a decade.


He said that being displaced from his home hit him hard, and he hopes that future generations will be able to return home. He added that he wants to go home, but can’t because there is no construction for housing or water and sewage infrastructure.


Bighetty made his way through Thompson last weekend, and hopes to be in Winnipeg by early August.
