Tensions ran high today in a Winnipeg court room where the chief and three councillors from Pinaymootang First Nation argued they should not have been kicked out of office by the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs last summer.

Bernard Valcourt ejected them from office for alleged vote buying.

APTN’s Ntawnis Piapot was there and we must warn you – this story has offensive language.
