Denesoline Corp. claims Tlicho mismanaged Ventures West by giving chiefs’ family members high level positions
Oct 12, 2017
The Tlicho Investment Corporation is fighting back against allegations that it is mismanaging a transportation company it co-owns with the business arm of the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation.
In July, Denesoline Corporation launched a civil lawsuit against the Tlicho Investment Corporation for allegedly mismanaging Ventures West — the Alberta-based transport company the two groups co-own — by giving family members of Tlicho chiefs high level positions at the company, even though they were unqualified.
But in documents filed with the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, the Tlicho claim the lawsuit is “totally inappropriate,” “frivolous,” and “for the sole purpose of attempting to embarrass the Tlicho.”
