Waywayseecappo First Nation Treaty Four voted 92 per cent in favour of a historic land settlement with Canada this week.
The community held a referendum on July 15 to decided if they would accept Canada’s settlement offer of $287.6 million for the unlawful take over of approximately 48.3 square kilometres in 1881.
In total, 951 votes were received, with 905 voting in favour of the settlement, said a press release sent by the Waywayseecappo First Nation Treaty Four chief and council on Wednesday.
The Sun published unofficial results on Tuesday, July 16 based on numbers posted by a councillor on Facebook citing a total of 951 votes indicating that 851 had voted in favour of the settlement and 45 voted against. These earlier numbers are to be considered incorrect.
