A political studies professor based in La Ronge says Jeremy Harrison is risking alienating First Nations voters with his allegations over Monday’s vote.


Ray Davie notes the concerns Harrison has raised allegedly took place primarily on First Nations reserves.


Davie says Harrison’s public statements could backfire, especially if he’s a candidate in future elections or in a potential byelection.


Davie also says if Harrison’s allegations are proven, anyone who might be deemed responsible could face serious consequences under federal law.
