First Nation banishment bylaw to target gangs, drugs

 

January 27, 2017



A Saskatchewan First Nation is the latest community to turn to banishment as a way to deal with drugs and violent crime.

The chief and council at Beardy's and Okemasis are fine-tuning a bylaw that would allow them to recommend banishment as part of an individual's sentencing.

Chief Rick Gamble said it's a response to a troubling trend on the First Nation 85 kilometres north of Saskatoon.
