First Nation members aim to halt condos


Musqueam First Nation members took to Vancouver streets on Thursday to protest the developmen­t of condos on what the band says is an ancient village and burial site. Work has already begun on what the Musqueam believe is a 3,000-yearold midden on the 1300-block of SouthWest Marine Drive. The plan is to build a five-storey residentia­l and retail complex on the site. The land is privately owned and not protected by the provincial government. In January, work was stopped on part of the developmen­t after human remains were found. Work has continued on other parts of the site.
