Gull Bay seeks ‘fair share’ of annuity rates

Gull Bay First Nation has joined ongoing litigation proceedings that could finally resolve the issue of outdated annuity rates paid to members of the Robinson-Superior and Robinson-Huron treaties of 1850.

“Gull Bay’s chief and council will ask (Ontario’s Superior Court) to ensure that our Nation and its members both on and off-reserve get a fair share of the damages based on its population,” the band said this week in a news release.

The current annuity of $4 per year — which has long been regarded as ridiculously low — hasn’t been updated for nearly 150 years.

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.
