The Thompson Local News


The Province has asked the RCMP to investigate Manitoba Hydro over allegations of sexual abuse and racism here in the north.

 

The allegations come from a report which studied the social impact of hydro development, both past and present, on communities.

 

The Clean Environment Commission, who published the report, is described as an arms-length provincial agency.

 

Members of the Commission met with members of Fox Lake Cree Nation earlier this year and heard testimony that described what it was like when hydro workers came to town starting in the 1960's.

 

Those who testified spoke of racism, marginalization and sexual assaults with one person saying that they weren’t included as humans in their own community.

 

Another person told the Commission that his late wife came home from a residential school to a Hydro project which was just as bad.

 

Sustainable Development Minister Rochelle Squires says that the Pallister Government takes the matter seriously, and will be referring the report to the RCMP for investigation.
