Voting is underway in a land designation referendum for a First Nations community in Antigonish Co.
Both on-and-off-reserve band members of the Paq’tnkek First Nation can cast ballots until 8 p.m. Thursday.
P.J. Prosper, Paq’tnkek’s Chief, says a simple majority ‘yes’ vote will allow band officials to designate a parcel of reserve land north of the community’s new highway interchange for commercial development.
Prosper tells The Hawk the proposed Bayside Travel Centre would include a gas station, a coffee shop and-or restaurant, along with Paq’tnkek’s relocated entertainment centre.
