CROSS LAKE, Man. – Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger apologized to a northern Aboriginal community Tuesday for damage caused by a hydro-electric dam.

Selinger agreed to visit Cross Lake First Nation following a six-week occupation of the Jenpeg generating station last fall.

Protesters had said they wouldn’t leave the grounds of the dam until they received a personal apology from the premier. They say the hydro developments affected hunting, fishing, trapping and water quality. It also led to flooding and loss of cultural identity.
