Tribal council chief to sit on Stonechild inquiry committee

Star Phoenix, 11/19/2004


The chief of the Saskatoon Tribal Council will sit on a Saskatoon police commission committee looking at recommendations stemming from the Stonechild inquiry. Chief Glen Johnstone says there is plenty of fear of police in the aboriginal community. He says the continued denial of the inquiry’s findings by the union representing police officers is disturbing.

Johnstone says aboriginal young people are afraid of joining the force because of racism.

There’s a rumor going round that they’re going to disband the Saskatoon police force. What exactly “disband” means, I don’t know; but what are blogs for if not rumors?
