Nova Scotia chiefs agreed Monday to put longtime negotiations with provincial and federal governments on hold while they go back to Mi’kmaq communities and ensure that their members understand what is going on in the talks.
The Made-In-Nova Scotia negotiations have been underway for years, with a framework signed in 2007. They are meant to resolve issues related to treaties and indigenous rights.
At a meeting in a Dartmouth hotel Monday, protesters Shelley Young and Jean Sock spent hours speaking with chiefs across the province about why they want a new communications effort.
The chiefs ultimately agreed, they announced at about 3:30 p.m.
Young and Sock then took their first bites of food since March 1. They had been living on water, and Young said Monday she felt “weak” and in pain.
