Trudeau Strikes Again


Chief Little Big Trudeau looking after Chiefs neglects Natives...

Spend money on everything except Canadians!



Courageous First Nations activist Charmaine Stick is taking a stand – again.

Last year, Charmaine partnered with the Canadian Taxpayers Federation to take the chief and council at Onion Lake Cree Nation to court and force

them to open the books as required by The First Nations Financial Transparency Act.

We won a precedent-setting victory in the courts and after years of flaunting the law, Onion Lake Cree Nation finally had to publish its annual

financial statements and the salaries and expenses paid to chief and council.

The numbers didn’t paint a pretty picture. They showed that the chief made $123,000 in 2015 and then gave himself a big raise in 2016. The average income for band members at the Onion Lake Cree 
Nation is $17,528.

Now we have to fight again. 


A few weeks ago, Charmaine went to the band office to ask for the latest financial statements and the salaries and
expenses paid to chief and council. Officials wouldn’t give her the documents. Nor are they published on the website as required.

And, to top it off, Ottawa still refuses to enforce The First Nations Financial Transparency Act.
