No Band Funds for Legal Fees
WHEREAS: The election of March 18, 2016 is under appeal in the Federal Court of Canada, and;
WHEREAS:The Application is not filed against the Red Pheasant First Nation. It is filed against the individual chief and councillors in their individual capacity.
We the undersigned demand:
- that no Red Pheasant Band monies be used to pay for the legal defense of Chief and Council as this is not a legal action against the Band, it’s against the individual members of Chief and Council.
- If the appeal fails then reasonable legal fees may be reimbursed to members of Chief and Council for the appeal process only if a majority of band members at a duly convened general band meeting so agree.
- Notice for that general band meeting must be made in writing and delivered to each household and each off reserve band member no later than one month in advance of the meeting.
