Today as we talk about the potential for more urban reserves in Manitoba, let’s look back at the first one in Winnipeg …
Back in February 2015, Long Plain First Nation celebrated the grand opening of its new gas station and smoke shop on the first urban reserve in Winnipeg: the Madison Petro-Canada Gas Station and Convenience Store.
There are many urban reserves, operating seamlessly, across the country pumping (in this case literally) big money into the economy.
I had no idea this gas station was an urban reserve. How many of you knew? Taking your calls and texts after 1pm: 204.780.6868.
