A spokesman for Saskatchewan Justice Minister Frank Quennell says his boss has no intention of stepping into a dispute at the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation.


Tim Williams says any serious complaints related to the spending of TLE funds at the band should be directed towards legal authorities.


Premier Lorne Calvert received a request by a citizen to look into the matter during his recent bus tour of the North.


Calvert promised that the Justice Department would look into whether it was appropriate to investigate the matter.


However, Williams says it is not the place of the government to get involved.
