The Pimicikamak First Nation has served what it is calling an “eviction notice” to Manitoba Hydro workers.

In a statement released Wednesday, the First Nation said some of its members would occupy the grounds and staff housing complex at the Jenpeg generating station until their concerns are addressed by Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger and Manitoba Hydro CEO Scott Thomson.

Pimicikamak First Nation wants greater benefits from northern power generation. They also have concerns about permanent flooding and shoreline damage.
