Indigenous Affairs asked to abolish B.C. First Nation election results amid corruption allegations

Investigative Reporter

Kenneth Jackson is an investigative reporter in Ottawa, Ont. with more than two decades in the business. He got his start in community newspapers before joining the Ottawa Sun in 2007 where he worked the police beat. In 2011, Jackson joined APTN to break the Bruce Carson scandal. The former senior aide to Prime Minister Stephen Harper tried using his contacts in the federal government to sign water deals with First Nations. The RCMP would charge Carson with influence peddling based on APTN’s reporting. The case would make it all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, which upheld his conviction in 2018. In recent years, Jackson has focused, almost exclusively, on the child welfare system in Ontario. The work has earned multiple awards, including the 2020 Michener Award.

  1. I cannot understand why, after countless efforts by multiple people, neither Peters First Nation Chief and Council, nor the Band’s lawyer, nor INAC will speak to this publicly.

    When I am right, I speak up.

    When I am wrong, I speak up.

    When I accuse, I speak up.

    When I am accused, I speak up.

    What is the point in not speaking?

    1. straight talk
      INDIAN AFFAIRS is just going along with the white paper to abolish INDIANS. INDIANS are doing this to themselves, we do not need to blame anyone but ourselves.
