Local Police To Add NAN Member To Board

Posted on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 13:23 PM

Thunder Bay police services board has voted unanimously to allow a Nishnawbe Aski Nation member to serve on the board.  

For the time being, the person will be able to sit on the board, but not vote.  But when a position opens in the new year, that member will receive full privileges.  

NAN Deputy Grand Chief Anna Betty Achneepineskum is pleased with the resolution.  

She says many of their people have been mistreated, which has been proven in court, and this is a great step forward.
