Members of the Blueberry River First Nation say some progress was made after they installed a roadblock on Saturday.
Spokesperson Clarence Apsassin says the peaceful protest did generate talks.

The roadblock happened at the 43 road connector from kilometer 62, at the Beatton River Road, to kilometer 32, at the Tommy Lakes Road.
All traffic was let through, other than the targeted seismic company’s vehicles.
Apsassin says the problem started with a broken agreement. He says the company agreed to sign members of the reserve for contracting. Now, he says, the company is not returning any phone calls and is continuing business.
He says other businesses are following protocol, like Taqa, a Calgary-based company.

Apsassin says more roadblocks will continue if the members don’t see results.
