MSIFN claims Ontario did not consult them over new Pickering casino
The Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation (MSIFN) is heading to mediation with the province in an effort to settle its concerns that the Ontario government breached an agreement that limited the number of gaming halls in Durham.
The Scugog Island First Nation says the discussions will centre around “claims of agreement violations, bad faith negotiations and failures to provide consultation related to gaming.”
The MSIFN is “seeking relief” for the government’s decision to open new gaming facilities near the Great Blue Heron Casino without providing consultation. According to the MSIFN, the province is obligated to discuss the issue with the Scugog Island First Nation under Section 35 of Canada’s Constitution Act.
