Jennifer opened meeting with report on Anishinabek Nation meeting in North Bay on Matrimonial Real Property she attended with Councillors Lionel Fox and Wayne McQuabbie. The Anishinabek Nation is working on a draft law of MRP before the federal government hands down legislation in the spring as promised. It is important for First Nations to have their own laws in place before the government can dictate how First Nations should deal with MRP.
