MCK announces Agreement with Hydro-Qu�bec


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) wishes to inform  Kahnawa�kehr�:non that a Land Use and Dismantlement Agreement (the �Agreement�) with Hydro-Qu�bec was signed yesterday for the continued use of Line 1 Lands, Line 2A, and the eventual dismantlement of Line 2 as a whole.

In the Agreement, Hydro-Qu�bec agrees to:

  • endeavor to dismantle Line 2 by 2022
  • release its interest on all lands within the footprint of Line 2B, and extinguish the �perpetual servitudes� on those lots
  • the continued use and operation of Line 1 (consisting of only ten towers along the St. Lawrence Seaway) until 2042, subject to renewal by the parties
Furthermore, as reported in the past, Hydro-Qu�bec has previously agreed to:
  • deregister its interests in Line 3
  • return Line 4 to reserve status (note: these lands are currently in Canada�s Addition To Reserve process)
The Agreement was signed by Grand Chief Joseph Tokwiro Norton and the President of Hydro-Qu�bec Trans�nergie, Mr. Marc Boucher.

�It�s been a long journey,� stated Grand Chief Norton. �It�ll be gratifying to finally be able once again use these lands. We�d like to thank everyone for their hard work, especially former Council Chief Kenneth McComber, who lead the negotiating team for the past several years to the conclusion of the agreement .�

�We are delighted to have reached this Agreement with our Mohawk partners and look forward to pursuing this excellent working relationship in future endeavors,� stated Marc Boucher, President of Hydro-Qu�bec Trans�nergie.
