Inconsistencies in a list of eligible voters on the Muskowekwan First Nation may result in a second referendum on designating reserve land for a new potash mine, according to its chief.

Chief Reg Bellerose says Aboriginal Affairs generates the voters list under a provision of the Indian Act, and keeping track of band members is difficult for various reasons.

Bellerose says that council must follow Aboriginal Affairs policy when it comes to a possible second vote.

But the chief says the membership clearly voted in favour to designating lands for potash and mineral exploration with roughly 80% support.

If a second vote is held, Bellerose expects it will take place in February or March.
