The Executive Council meets next week to provide oversight and direction concerning the operations and governance of the FSIN during the campaign. The election is set for October 25th.
There are three open positions on the FSIN Executive. Seeking re-election as Chief is Bobby Cameron. He is up against Delbert Wapass. Morley Watson and Darin Poorman are running for First Vice Chief. Edward “Dutch” Lerat, Corey Bugler, and Christian Jack are vying for Third Vice Chief. The FSIN Election Legislative Assembly will be held in Saskatoon.
