This is a tale of intrigue and sabotage. How is it Lake St. Martin First Nation was permanently displaced from their ancestral home by the Manitoba flood of 2011? Why would the Manitoba government use a water control structure to save upstream cottagers and farmers with only an economic and recreational interest in the land that would flood people with a deep connection to the land? The Manitoba government brought further disaster to this community by unilaterally deciding to build a $100 million dollar water channel beside their reserve and to relocate the community against their will to an old military base.
