The Mountain Cree Traditional Band
The Mountain Cree Band is an outspoken advocate for the
protection of of sites of historic, cultural and religious
sites of import to the aboriginal community.
This often brings us into disagreements with industry and the government.
Canada - and the Province of Alberta - are still in fact Colonial govern-
ments, with systemic colonial attitudes towards the aboriginal peoples.
Joe and Irene Fromhold|
The County of Lacombe has demanded that we now cease all
operations and has taken us to court over this. The County
has taken the Colonialist position that it has the authority
to tell First Nations what they can and can not do, claims
that First Nations have no Rights, and has attempted to
curtail the Civil Rights of the Chief. This is in breach of
the laws of Canada, and the Supreme Court of Canada rulings.
This is now being challenged in the Supreme Court of Canada.
