Members of the Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation have a decision to make. The community members will be casting ballots in what’s called a Land Designation Vote today. They are being asked on whether a parcel of reserve lands near the Paqtnkek Interchange Project currently under construction can be used for commercial development.
Chief PJ Prosper says if the community says yes, the development would move forward modestly.
Polls will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. today.
