English River Band Embarks On Bridge Project

Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at 12:35

 

 

The English River First Nation is looking to expand its borders.

 

The band is working with Indian Affairs to construct a bridge north of the community, across the Churchill River.

 

The $4- to $5-million project will begin once final approval has been given and tenders sent out.

 

English River Chief Ralph Paul says the band is bursting at the seams right now, and needs the room to build more houses.

 

"There's hardly any room left for any more buildings, because our land is rocky and muskeg, so the space is very limited. So we have to go across the river and to see if we can develop that area," Paul says.

 

He adds that survey crews have already begun to scour the area.

On Jan. 15, police in Meadow Lake received a complaint of a sexual assault, which is alleged to have happened last November.

 

John Rollins Hardwich, 50, was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual interference and two counts of sexual exploitation.

 

Hardwich was remanded, and is set to appear again in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on Jan. 25.

 

The RCMP are particularly interested in identifying any other potential victims.

Former Campaign Worker Charged With Fraud

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 15:07

 

 

Charges have been laid against a former campaign volunteer, after the RCMP investigated the questionable sale of 1,100 Saskatchewan NDP memberships during the 2009 party leadership campaign.

 

RCMP say Ernest Morin has been charged with forgery, uttering and attempting to utter forged documents.

 

He is set to appear in court in Regina on Feb. 17.

 

Police launched an investigation last June, after concerns were raised about the validity of party memberships purchased by the Dwain Lingenfelter campaign in the names of members of the Flying Dust and Waterhen Lake First Nations, in the Meadow Lake area.

 

There were allegations that some of the memberships, which cost the campaign just under $10,000, may have been forged.

 

A report commissioned by the NDP into the scandal said an unidentified volunteer with Lingenfelter's campaign team filled out membership forms and signed them for people without their knowledge.

 

The report said Lingenfelter, who eventually won the party leadership, did not condone the actions.
