Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation band election recount denied

May 10, 2011 - 11:22am

Unrest within a local first nation is not going away anytime soon.....

Harold Linklater requested a recount following last months band election results for the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation. Linklater, lost the race for Chief by 9 votes.

The band's election act only allows for a recount for the council seats.

He says he has been told by a member of the appeals commitee that his request for a recount was turned down. Although he has not officially received anything in writing.

He now intends to look at other legal options.
