Questions are beginning to mount over an audit of Peguis First Nation emergency spending, released by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.
The audit looks at how money for flood relief was spent between 2009 and 2011. It contains details of payments in excess of $200,000 made directly to chief and council, and large discrepancies on the number of houses that were sandbagged.
Peguis chief Glenn Hudson responded by referring to the document as a draft audit, and labelled it as another attempt by critics to undermine his leadership.
The CTF says that band members came forward with the document. Aboriginal Affairs has yet to comment.
APTN National News reporter Tiar Wilson has the details.
