    to believe a provincial park would be created but are concerned the government wants to extend a consultation process on the matter by five years It is time for the government to quit stalling and establish the Fisher Bay park now David Crate the chief of the Fisher River Cree Nation said Friday Crate said his community is considering its options If the park isn t established and government s not serious on protecting this area then we ll probably have to do that ourselves Crate said We may be forced to close the area down Crate said the First Nation would not erect blockades but there could be legal action The Fisher River Cree Nation and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society issued a joint news release Friday calling on the province to support a park in the area Crate said another five years of consultation could jeopardize a park plan I mean governments change right What if the NDP government isn t here then we re going to be dealing with a different government which may have a different vision for protected areas he said The minister responsible for the creation of a park said Friday that the province still wants to create a park Our intention is still to create a provincial park there and to create it in the very near future Bill Blaikie Manitoba s minister of conservation said Friday It s not the case that we want to put off creating a provincial park for five years Blaikie said extending the status quo for another five years is simply a procedural matter to allow consultations to wrap up It s not a question of us wanting it to take that long or thinking that it will take that long or stalling or anything like
