Piikani Petition Rejected by CouncilBook
Natoshia Bastien expects to deliver a notice of appeal to the Piikani band administrator today after a petition calling for the resignation of chief and council was rejected Wednesday. Bastien and others are behind the petition to oust the present council and have a new election called for the Piikani people living on the Peigan reserve. They say leadership has not passed muster, especially in terms of financial transparency and accountability.
