FSIN Removes John Cochrane Motion From Agenda
Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 13:36

A Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations senator says there was a violation at the FSIN's legislative assembly in Saskatoon today when an item was removed from the agenda by amendment.

The John Cochrane First Nation was seeking membership into the FSIN, but that resolution was removed from the agenda.

Senator Sol Sanderson says there is a process followed to put an item on the agenda in the first place.

He says it is vetted through the Senate, which is to ensure there are checks and balances.
