We have received an update on the seizure notice which was posted on the Kwaleen Elementary School from a group calling themselves the T’silhquot’in Nation under the Chilcotin National Congress.
Mark Thiessen, Superintendent of School District No. 27 says in an email received yesterday that School District 27 has referred the matter to the Office of the Attorney General of BC and have received a copy of their letter in response to this situation:
“The letter from the Attorney General’s Office advises the Chilcotin National Congress that “the Government of British Columbia does not recognize the Chilcotin National Congress (CNC) as the proper legal representatives of the T’silhqot’in Nation”, nor does the Government “recognize the Universal Supreme Court of the T’silhquot’in as having any legal capacity to issue valid and enforceable orders”.
” The Attorney General’s Office’s letter goes on to say that “contrary to the orders [the CNC] has issued, [the government] does not recognize [the CNC] as the lawful owners of the properties referenced in those documents”. The Attorney General’s Office has asked the CNC to “cease and desist from sending letters and documents of this kind”.”
The gate of the School was locked by School District 27, says Thiessen.
