First Nations Assembly Prepared to go to Court

The was an encouraging crowd at a public meeting hosted by Mi'kmaq First Nations Assembly Of Newfoundland last night. Well over 300 people packed a conference room at the Pepsi Centre, all gathered to address the course of action, for those with pending and approved applications to the Qalipu Mi'kmaq band.

While there were many questions from those in attendance, one thing was clear: The Mi'kmaq First Nations Assembly of Newfoundland is prepared to take the fight to court. Vice chair for the group, Hector Pearce, began the evening by delivering information about MFNAN as well as a brief look at their mandate.The Assembly is asking for fairness in the process of enrollment. The meeting broke down into a case by case question and answer session with research representative Odelle Pike responding.

The group which now has 3,000 members hope to obtain a membership of 10,000 and urged the crowd to register.
