TOBIQUE, N.B. – Members of the Tobique First Nationhave approved a land claim deal with the federal government that will provide each member with over 13 thousand dollars.

The band in western New Brunswick reports the vote was 864 in favour of the deal.

One hundred and 86 people voted against it.

The 39.2-million settlement is in exchange for more than 4,000 hectares of land taken by the federal government more than 100 years ago.

About 20 per cent of the total payment will be earmarked for various projects in the community.
