Hello CAPT supporters:
There has been some very good news this week about one of the First Nations represented on the ACR Working Group by Chief Jason Gauther, Chief of Missanabie Cree First Nation (MCFN). MCFN recently signed joint ventures with 7 industry partners (specializing in fields such as surveying, mineral extraction and blasting). These partnerships will allow Missanabie Cree First Nation to develop new opportunities in their traditional territories. The ACR Passenger Train Stakeholders Working Group has already had a very positive experience in partnering with Chief Gauthier who represents both MCFN and the Northeast Superior Regional Chiefs Forum (NSRCF) on the ACR working group. We congratulate Chief Gauthier on the new partnerships formed with the seven northern companies announced in the links to media coverage below. We look forward to continuing our long-term relationship with Chief Gauthier on behalf of MCFN and NSRCF as we continue to develop a long-term sustainable passenger train service that will serve our whole region.
