A first nation councillor in northeastern Alberta is fighting his council colleagues over documents about the band's business dealings and back pay.
Mike Orr, a councillor with the Fort McKay First Nation on the edge of Alberta's oilsands, is accusing his colleagues of withholding financial documents and back pay.
In late 2010, Orr started demanding financial accountability about the band's group of companies after band members accused the council of wasting money.
He was soon removed from council.
Late last year the Federal Court overturned that decision ordering he be re-instated and be given back-pay, something Orr says hasn't happened.
Orr said he has been given some of the money owed to him, but not all, and he hasn't been getting sufficient information or documents about the band's business dealings during the time he had been away.
In documents filed with the Federal Court in Calgary, he maintains the first nation is in contempt of court.
Documents filed by Fort McKay chief and council state the application should be dismissed as that best efforts to provide information to Orr were made and that he's not owed any money.
