SUPPLIED Manitoba Hydro workers are still perpetuating sexual violence against northern First Nations women, the area’s former chief says in the wake of a bombshell provincial agency report.
She said an incident happened this summer.
“There was a woman attacked by (a group of Hydro) workers,” said Sheila North, who ended her term this month as grand chief of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak. “I definitely know that it’s still happening, and there’s many reasons for it.”
North said the allegation emerged this summer, involving workers likely involved in the Keeyask generating station project, which involves four northern Manitoba reserves.
