‘’Silenced No More’’ 269 are trying to silence the Peguis Auditor and Obstruct Democrat Rights of Community Members
Posted on March 21, 2023
Today on March 20, 2023 at the Peguis Community hall, “Silence No More’’ 269 silenced the people of Peguis and the official audit presentation which was to be given by Peguis auditor Baker Tilley.
Unfortunately, a small number of protesters affiliated to the group 269 “Silent No More” obstructed the presentation and requested shutting it down. With the endorsement by a quorum of Peguis council, this action was undertaken and is a total breach of the democratic right of all Peguis members to have access to factual, transparent and accountability on information concerning the First Nations finances. This quorum of council led by Martin Favel, Glennis Sutherland, Wade Sutherland and 269 Supporter Kelvin Wilson obstructed the democratic right of our Peguis community members to see the presentation of the 2021/22 audit results. The other council members present Chief Glenn Hudson and Mary Tyler Bear had requested the audit presentation proceed.
At a time where there is much concern and misinformation about Peguis’ financial situation coming from rumours on social media and the 269 “Silence No More” group, this afternoon’s obstruction of democracy was not only selfish, but it was irresponsible to the people and community.
We will keep you posted about the rescheduling of the audit presentation and will ask for your continued support.
