They Must Be...

...getting the message:

FSIN vice-chiefs take pay cut
"Meeting for most of the day Wednesday at the Allan Bird Memorial Centre in Prince Albert, chiefs voted nearly unanimously to cut the salaries of the four vice-chiefs from $100,000 per year to $75,000. The $215,000 salary of FSIN Chief Perry Bellegarde remains unaffected, as it’s funded by the national Assembly of First Nations (AFN).

Chiefs also voted overwhelmingly to take $500,000 in casino revenue from the First Nations Trust."
More here, here and here.

Long story short. They're cutting the fat and they ain't crying about "inherent and treaty rights". Will wonders ever cease?

And don't you just love it that Bellegarde is exempted?
