Land in New Brunswick Returned to Peskotomuhkati Tribe

The Peskotomuhkati tribe, based in Qonaskamkuk, or St. Andrews, New Brunswick, has received 2,500 acres along the Skutik, or St. Croix, River on behalf of the provincial government, reports Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. The act is an example of the effort between the two nations to work collaboratively to renew their relationship based on recognition, rights, respect, co-operation and partnership, which is recognized as key to achieving reconciliation with Indigenous people in Canada.
The land acquired includes Camp Chiputneticook, a 2,500-acre property in New Brunswick along the Skutik River, which is of cultural significance to the Nation. The Government of Canada provided the funding for the acquisition. The Nation has acquired the land and buildings from the Orser family, who have used it as their summer home for more than a century.
Along with the land comes a collection of artifacts of cultural significance for the Nation.

A source has confirmed to the Brunswick Business Journal that New Brunswick is specifically targeted for tarrifs on Softwood Lumber.  The use by the American Department of Commerce of "Atlantic Provinces" indicates some ingorance in its definition. The term generally includes New Brunswick from the understanding of Canadian readers.
