Financial records in disarray and millions unaccounted for as new chief and council take office
The new Chief of the Liard First Nation says it’s been a “difficult transition” getting into office as the First Nation’s financial records are in disarray.
George Morgan was elected chief of the Liard First Nation in June. He says the new council still doesn’t know how much debt the First Nation has accumulated.
“It wasn’t an easy transition because the outgoing council hasn’t been forthcoming. We’re having to do a lot of our own investigation. We’re trying to deal with banks directly and anybody who had had any dealings with the Liard First Nation,” he said.
