Canada | Deal near on large new national park reserve in NWT, but one First Nation holding back

After close to two decades, a final agreement on the proposed Thaidene Nene National Park Reserve is set to be signed in Lutselk'e, N.W.T., on July 25, but not everyone is fully on board.


The proposed park, 26,376 square kilometres of land northeast of Lutselk'e, is touted as what would be the most progressive protected area in Canada. Its core would be a national park, with a territorially protected area surrounding that.
