Thursday, September 15, 2011 at 20:29



The FSIN is responding to recent media reports surrounding how much it costs to operate the board for the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority.


Vice-Chief Morley Watson met with media today to answer questions.


He says some people may say the board spends a lot of money, but he notes that SIGA has expanded over the years.


Watson says SIGA may have spent a lot of money, but says it has also earned a lot of money, and says that money has made its way back to communities.


Initially when asked, Watson indicated Vice-Chief Dutch Lerat was in charge of the SIGA portfolio, but later issued a correction, noting he was in charge of it.


He says Lerat has assured him verbally that he has withdrawn his lawsuit against SIGA.
