A special meeting was held for Opaskwayak Cree Nation members at the Kikiwak Inn last Friday to give members information about proposed changes to their election code.
One of the biggest of these proposed changes to the election code is that the OCN chief and council would hold office for a two year term instead of a three year term if the changes were approved.
If you couldn’t make the meeting and you want to find out more about the proposed changes there is going to be another meeting at a later date but there is no set date for this meeting right now.
A document containing these proposed changes can be obtained from any band member on OCN and the referendum on these proposed changes is set for November 28th at the Otineka Mall from 9 AM to 8PM.
Contact an election board member at 204-627-7016 or 204-620-6158 for more information.
