#11 BLS- Ousted Acting Chief Benjamin Nottaway

In March 2008, Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl deposed the acting chief, Benjamin Nottaway, and empowered a minority faction -- composed mostly of people living off-reserve -- as the new leadership. This was the third time that Indian Affairs had meddled in the internal governance of Barriere Lake. The Tribal Council representing the Algonquin First Nations of Barriere Lake, Wolf Lake, and Timiskaming, continues to recognize and work with deposed Chief Nottaway and his Council.

Le ministère des Affaires

Le ministère des Affaires indiennes du Canada est un bandit. Même chose pour le gouvernement du Canada, l'État colonisateur. Les Conservateurs sont résolument anti-autochtones. Quelle erreur d'avoir élu ces gens-là!

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
