LONGLAC, Ont. -- Highway 11 at Longlac No. 58 First Nations will be under a road advisory for about an hour Wednesday afternoon.
Police issued a road closure notice to media shortly after 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Few details were made available in that release, but officials with the Greenstone Detachment of the OPP say the brief closure is the result of a peaceful Idle No More demonstration.
While police did say they expected the road advisory to end in approximately one hour, they did not give an exact time.
