CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – The sale of Mill River to a private developer in 2017 happened with no meaningful consultation and has “left the process of reconciliation in need of repair,” the lawyer for the Mi’kmaq First Nations argued Wednesday in P.E.I. Supreme Court.
Wednesday marked day two of hearings dealing with a judicial review application brought by P.E.I.’s two Mi’kmaq First Nations on the province’s sale of Mill River to Toronto Blue Jays founder Don McDougall in January 2017.
Neil Stewart, deputy minister of finance, was again on the witness stand. He was asked by David Rosenberg, legal counsel for the Mi’kmaq, to review a number of letters sent by the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of P.E.I. and by Chief Brian Francis and Chief Matilda Ramjattan through 2015 and 2016 asking for more information and consultation on the proposed sale of the Mill River golf course.
