Qalipu Chief Brendan Sheppard says there is nothing new to report on the talks currently taking place between the band and the federal government in relation to a review of the enrolment process.
“There’s nothing different,” said Sheppard Thursday in response to a question based on a report that the two sides had reached an agreement.
The call to the chief was prompted by information posted on several Qalipu related Facebook pages that make mention of the Qalipu Watchdogs.
The Western Star also sent an inquiry about a possible agreement to the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development. A spokesperson for the department is checking on the request.
