Nipissing First Nation Election Results
A 3-peat for Nipissing First Nation Chief Marianna Couchie. She recently won re-election along with all the incumbent councillors too, with the new term of office starting August 1st. Couchie says her campaign focused on stability in government, communication and sustainability. She says moving forward the community really wants infrastructure upgrades. Meantime, Couchie says they’re building a new small business centre, a new daycare is being built in Garden Village, more housing has been developed and they’re looking to the province for approval for 64 long term care beds. She also says the community will be deciding what to do with a land claim settlement offer. That offer is for $123.9-million for the First Nation’s loss of use of land on their northern and western boundaries. Couchie says community meetings and a ratification vote will be held when it comes to the land claim.
