‘A Little North Korea’

If this was a municipality, instead of a remnant of segregation, all of this backwards nonsense could be ended once and for all:
“Band members vow to fight appointment, fearing continuation of ‘dictatorship’.”

“The ailing and embattled ‘lifetime’ chief of a small Ojibway ‘First Nation’ {aboriginal community} in Ontario announced this month he was appointing his wife to replace him at the helm of the community.

“Edward Machimity has been ‘customary’ chief of the Ojibway ‘Nation’ of Saugeen {a ‘nation’ of 242 people}, about 400 km north of Thunder Bay, for 34 years, despite repeated attempts over the past decade by members of the 242-person community to change their leadership. Band members say that Machimity runs the Band government for the benefit of his family and close friends.

“In a May 16-dated letter, which was hand-delivered this week to most of the homes in Saugeen, Edward Machimity stated that his wife Violet Machimity, currently the Band’s administrator, would become the next chief of the community…

“Edward Machimity also previously appointed his daughter as one of the headmen…

“He said he also wanted the Band’s police chief — his son-in-law Darrell Keesic — to take on a “long-term leadership role” with the Band once he retired from the force… Band members have accused Edward Machimity of using the band’s two-member police force to suppress dissent.

It is the responsibility of the customary chief to appoint his or her successor.” …

“Edward Machimity has been chief since 1985. Machimity is currently battling an opposition group before the Federal Court over the community’s leadership. A group of community members appointed a new slate of Band councillors, known as headmen, during a meeting on Feb. 3.

“Darlene Necan, who was appointed as a new headman during the Feb. 3 meeting, said there is nothing in the Band’s custom leadership rules, adopted in 1997, that give the customary chief the power to appoint a successor…

“Under the Band’s custom leadership rules, a chief must undergo a leadership review every 21 years. Edward Machimity’s opponents held a leadership review on Dec. 9, 2018, which was the 21-year-mark of his term under the Band’s current custom governance code, and decided to oust him.

“Necan said she believes community members will be ready to reject Machimity’s succession plan at the June gathering and finally break the hold he’s had on the community…

John Machimity, Chief Edward Machimity’s brother, says the First Nation is a ‘little North Korea brewing.’ (CBC News)

“John Machimity, Edward Machimity’s brother, said he’s frustrated that Ottawa has ignored the community’s pleas to intervene and instead left it up to members, who don’t have much money, to fight for their democratic rights in court.

We are in Canada here and yet we have a little North Korea brewing on Saugeen #258“,
said John Machimity, referring to his community’s reserve number.
Nobody is going to take notice until somebody actually gets hurt.”

“There are 358 ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal tribes and communities} with ‘custom election codes’ in Canada, according to the Department of ‘Indigenous’ {they mean ‘Aboriginal’} Services. A handful of Bands, primarily in B.C., follow a hereditary {royalty} system for the Band governance.

“Ottawa rarely intervenes in political disputes involving Bands that operate under a ‘custom election code’.”
{Yet aboriginals take their disputes to Canadian courts. More money for the lawyer/judge-created Aboriginal Industry…}
