Link: FSIN chief OK with drug dealers being banished from Saskatchewan reserves | Regina Leader-Post (external - login to view)
Banishing drug dealers from First Nations is OK with the
chief overseeing 74 Saskatchewan Indian bands.
Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations Chief Bobby Cameron
said that if First Nations go to a referendum and vote in favour of
banishing people who are harming youth by selling illegal drugs
and alcohol, he will support that.
Some First Nations in Saskatchewan are already doing just that.
Last month, Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation’s council and elders
came to the decision to banish six non-band members from its
lands and issue “first and final warnings” to approximately 20
band members in response to a growing crystal methamphetamine
That came after the band spent more than a year trying to contain
the drug, which exploded in popularity.
When asked if banishments were something he he would like to see
happen on all of Saskatchewan’s First Nations, Cameron said it was
a good question.
“If it means getting rid of drug dealers, sure. You’re darn rights. If it
means not losing any more youth to alcohol and drugs, you bet I do,”
Blah blah blah....Yada yada yada...rest of the article at the above LINK.
So, Banish these Clowns to where? Dump them in who's back yard?
So if these folks are banished from these reservations, who gets to
take them? Think of this dumping on a provincial or national level.
would it fly?
