The Thompson Local News

Tomorrow marks the start of the Assembly of First Nation’s 39th Annual General Assembly in Vancouver.


The three day event will start with a candidate’s forum, where the five candidates for National Chief will have one last chance to try and garner votes. There are 635 voting members of AFN, and at least 60% of votes cast are needed to elect the National Chief.  


Two of the five candidates are women and both come from First Nations here in Manitoba; former AFN Manitoba Regional Chief Katherine Whitecould and Sheila North, who became the first female MKO Grand Chief in 2015.


The ballot also includes incumbent National Chief Perry Bellegarde, Russ Diabo and Miles Richardson.


The voting will happen Wednesday starting at 9:00am Pacific, with the results expected to be announced at some point throughout the afternoon.


The assembly will conclude Thursday, following a discussion on resolutions and the closing ceremonies.
