The Prince Albert Grand Council annual general assembly kicked off Monday.

For most of the day the Senator Allen Bird Memorial Centre was standing room only with a number of elders, chiefs, delegates and members of the public in attendance. PAGC Vice-Chief Brian Hardlotte says the assembly is an opportunity to report and reflect the last year as well as to look forward to the future.

The assembly will see a number of resolutions debated and passed.

A number of different groups will also be honoured including the Lac La Ronge Indian Band for its efforts in the ongoing search for 27-year-old Timothy Charlette.

Charlette has been missing for more than two weeks and it is believed his body may be located in the North Saskatchewan River, near Prince Albert.

The assembly will conclude with the election of grand chief tomorrow.

Current Chief Ron Michel and former PAGC Vice-Chief Elmer Ballantyne are the candidates.
