As a footnote it was the Gesgapegiag Band that initiated the talks with the Quebec Gov't and a LOT of work and time went into this .Band chief Guy Bondo is very popular and has a vested interest in Salmon fishing on the Grande Cascapedia.. When the band went to vote they voted unwhelminingly in favour .
Strong rumours are afloat that same is in the works for the Restigouche/ Matapedia .Now THAT is the awesome news that we're all waiting for
