Ottawa Provides Cash For On-Reserve Home Renos

Friday, March 19, 2010 at 15:25

 

 

Several reserves around the province are receiving money from the federal government to renovate homes in their respective communities.

 

The government announced today on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation that it is moving ahead with efforts to address immediate housing needs.

 

Minister responsible Lynne Yelich says the renovations will occur on multiple reserves and generate employment for workers as well.

 

According to the government, a total of 650 housing units will be retrofitted on reserves across Saskatchewan through its $666,000 investment.

FSIN Up In Arms Over Threat To Tax-Free Tobacco

Friday, March 19, 2010 at 15:21

 

 

The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations is calling on the province to back off on a proposed plan to reduce the number of cartons of tobacco status Indians can buy on reserves.

 

In a press release issued this morning, the FSIN says they only learned of Premier Brad Wall's plan minutes before he delivered a state of the province address in Saskatoon on Wednesday.

 

The federation contends there was no meaningful consultation regarding this matter.

 

Vice-Chief Morley Watson says the proposal is also a blanket attack on treaty rights and the ability of bands to generate their own economies.

 

Watson says the proposed decrease in the tobacco exemption would cut millions of dollars in revenue for approximately 70 on-reserve businesses in the province.

 

He adds Saskatchewan First Nations chiefs will hold a meeting on the issue.

Friday, March 19, 2010 at 15:18

 

 

An arrest warrant has been issued for a La Ronge man facing serious charges.

 

Mathew Sandy Allan Charles, known locally as "Chew", didn't show up for his court appearance yesterday in the community.

 

He was arrested after a man with a bladed weapon broke into a residence on November 18th and attacked and raped a woman.

 

Charles was scheduled to be sentenced on charges of assault and criminal harrassment.

 

The warrant was issued when he failed to show.

 

In additon to those charges, Charles is also facing a charge of sexual assault and overcoming resistance to commit an indictable offence.
