Modest Progress Reported Between Mohawk First Nation and Canadian Government Over CN Blockade

After a meeting near a rail blockade that has shut down train service across much of Eastern Canada, Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller reports that hours of talks between the federal government and representatives of the Mohawk First Nation ended with “modest progress.”  Miller went onto say that “Tonight, we made some modest progress by opening up a dialogue with the people standing out there in the cold and doing so for eight or nine days,” he said. “We talked openly, frankly, painfully at times, and sometimes with humor. There’s a lot more work to be done.” However, Miller declined to tell reporters what that progress was, saying he would deliver that message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau directly.
