Heavy Sigh

Oh, but I'm raaaaaacist.

"A new federal government audit says the chief and council of Manitoba's Peguis First Nation paid themselves thousands of dollars in money earmarked for flood compensation, diverted thousands more to private consultants and hired unqualified staff as a make-work project for flood emergency operations."
Is it any wonder the industry thrives while the grass roots goes without? The Peguis Band has been like this for years and years.
"The Peguis review is the first indication Ottawa is scrutinizing the finances of individual First Nations and may go further than just recoup funds. Bands could also find themselves the focus of criminal investigations."
Long, long overdue.
