A court date has been set for the dispute over the sale the of the Mill River Resort.
The Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI has asked for a judicial review of the transaction. A hearing on the matter will be held January 16-18 in 2018.
325 acres of Crown land was sold to businessman Don McDougall in January this year for $500,000. The sale would include the Mill River Golf Course, the resort, campground and fun park. It’s part of a 20 year agreement.
The province has committed $6-million into the property for capital improvements over the past 12 years. Also $1.6 million for operating losses the first six years.
The Mi’kmaq Confederacy says government did not engage in proper consultations and asked for the review.
An injunction regarding the sale has been dropped.
