Crowd continues to grow at longhouse erected across from provincial legislature in Fredericton
Oct 28, 2013
A letter signed by several First Nation leaders, calling for a moratorium on shale gas exploration and development in New Brunswick, has been delivered to the premier’s office.
Meanwhile, members of the Maliseet First Nation continued to gather Monday at a traditional longhouse set up one block away from the premier’s office over the weekend.
Others are being urged to bring tepees to set up there as well, in hopes the site will be crowded by Nov. 5, when the legislature’s fall session is scheduled to begin, said Ron Tremblay, of Wolastoq Grand Council.
