Lhtako Dene Nation says Quesnel Mayor is not welcome in its territory

The Lhtako Dene Nation Band Council has passed a resolution prohibiting Quesnel Mayor Ron Paull from entering Nation lands, unless he is specifically invited.

It also says that the Nation will not work with Mayor Paull.

The resolution does say that Lhtako will work with other members of Quesnel City Council and the management team.

The motion also states that “Mayor Ron Paull of the City of Quesnel has condoned the distribution of the book Grave Error: How the Media Misled Us (and the Truth about Residential Schools), and has attempted to distribute the book to others.”

The resolution says that the book implies, among others, that cultural genocide did NOT happen at residential schools.

It also states that the Mayor has not apologized to the Nation for his actions.
