Wesley First Nation employees sacrificing for deficit but chiefs and executive are not
The Wesley First Nation hosted Stoney Tribal Administration CEO, Ken Christensen last week to present a financial update to the Stoney community. The community meeting, which took place at the Chief Goodstoney Rodeo Centre, was held, presumably, to provide a financial update.
Interestingly, the CEO presented an update on Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) funding and excluded information on capital (band) revenue.
In recent months, Stoney Tribal Administration has laid off many band administration employees. In addition, band administrators have acted to save costs by reducing the workweek to three days. As a result, band employees have lost 40 per cent of their wages.
