Fond du Lac Band Dismisses Election Appeal

An off-reserve member of the Fond du Lac First Nation is waiting for word about an election appeal she filed last year.


Colleen Whitedeer is a university student living in Saskatoon.


In an appeal filed last September, she listed several grievances she had about the way the Fond du Lac band election was held the previous month.


However, officials with the First Nation say the matter has already been dealt with.


A band lawyer apparently reviewed Whitedeer’s list of complaints and concluded there wasn’t any grounds for an appeal.


The band drafted a letter of response a few weeks after receiving her notice of appeal, but Whitedeer says she has yet to receive it.
