GULL BAY FIRST NATION INTENDS TO SEEK COSTS FOR LAWSUIT
CHALLENGING ELECTION

Gull Bay First Nation (Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek) announces that on October 8, 2021, the applicants in Wigwas et al v Gull Bay First Nation filed a Notice of Motion for leave to discontinue the matter with the Federal Court. This court matter began on March 31, 2021, when the applicants brought an application for judicial review to the Federal Court. The primary legal issue, in this case, was whether the decision of the Gull Bay First Nation Band Council to postpone the election due to the COVID-19 pandemic was reasonable. The applicants are asking the court to excuse them from paying costs for the litigation that they are now abandoning.

Larger Land Base

As you may be aware since 2016 Gull Bay First Nation has been in litigation with Canada and Ontario pertaining to the size of our reserve as promised by the Robinson Treaty of 1850.

As well, we are seeing the compensation for loss of use of those reserved lands that were promised by the Crown when the treaty was signed.

Since November of 2020 I have been in Mediation/Negotiations with both Canada/Ontario and 3 other First Nations from the Robinson Superior Treaty Area.

Please be advised that there is an offer to settle this claim from both Canada and Ontario. The First Nation is planning to have community information sessions about the claim subject to COVID-19 restrictions.

Should you have any questions or concerns about the offer to settle this claim please direct them to myself at: 1-807-627-6937
