Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation held a public meeting to publicly ask the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs to halt a cease and desist notice on the completion of a hydro power line that’s been sitting in limbo for nearly 13 years.
HCCC sent an incendiary letter in response to the request, accusing the Elected Council of copying their organization and saying talks between the chiefs and the Dev Corp were a bad omen and shut down after a symbolic string of beads fell to the floor during heated discussions.
The Dev Corp says the HCCC work stoppage at the Niagara Reinforcement Line has cost the Six Nations community half a million dollars so far.
Six Nations Police say a deceased male was found on Six Nations Wednesday evening.
