St. Mary's chief takes diversion route following sexual assault charge

 


On the day before the Assembly of First Nations' annual general assembly officially was set to begin in Fredericton, the chief of St. Mary's First Nation was busy rallying support to keep his name on the agenda amid a sexual-assault charge.

The lawyer for Chief Allan (Chicky) Polchies said his client was removed from the opening ceremonies by the First Nations Assembly executive council because of their zero tolerance policy toward sexual assault allegations.
