Native blockade at Conawapa
JUL 23 2007

Manitoba Hydro says its currently in talks with the Fox Lake First Nation about a blockade at the Conawapa exploration site in northern Manitoba.

CEO Bob Brennan tells CJOB it appears one or more people are blocking the road leading to the site, which also houses construction workers.

Brennan says it’s not clear what the protesters are demanding, but adds their actions are not endorsed by the band.

He says the blockade isn’t causing any problems at this time, and says Manitoba Hydro also uses helicopters to supply the camp.
