Keeping reserves dry isn't easy: P.A. tribal council vice-chief


Prohibiting alcohol is something the Standing Buffalo First Nation is considering in the wake of a homicide on New Year's Day — but other reserves in Saskatchewan have already taken that step and say it's not easy to do.

Joseph Tsannie, vice-chief of the Prince Albert Grand Council, is a member of the Hatchet Lake First Nation in the province's northeast, which became a dry reserve years ago.

Tsannie notes it is a challenge to keep alcohol out. He's currently working with the grand council on a strategy to reduce bootlegging in the north.
