February 13, 2017



For the first time in Saskatchewan, a newly elected First Nation band council has voluntarily undertaken drug and alcohol tests, in a bid to tackle social issues in the community head-on.

The chief and councillors at the Waterhen Lake First Nation, who were elected in December, wanted to take a proactive stance on issues such as substance abuse and addiction, and set a good example for their members, said Dustin Ross Fiddler, one of the new members of council.
