SARNIA, Ont. — A southwestern Ontario First Nation says it has ratified an agreement in the dispute over Camp Ipperwash, which saw the death of aboriginal protester Dudley George in 1995.
In a release Saturday, the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation said eligible voting members approved the deal with the federal government in a vote held on Friday.
The First Nation says the agreement includes a financial settlement in excess of $90 million, the return of land appropriated by the federal government in 1942 under the War Measures Act and cleanup of Stony Point lands.
