Board member resigns from native fire fighters association
The embattled Manitoba Association of Native Firefighters has lost one of its board members.
Peguis First Nation Chief Glen Hudson has resigned, saying he's frustrated with the way province and the federal government fund emergencies for First Nations.
MANFF has been the focus of a series of CBC News I-Team reports, the most recent one being about questionable overtime charges submitted to the province.
MANFF was tasked with paying for the housing and food for people displaced by the 2011 flood. It was to pay the bills and get reimbursed by the provincial government which, in turn, would get reimbursed by the federal government.
Documents obtained by CBC show MANFF spent millions on late night snacks and owes millions to hotels.
CBC News previously reported that the association still owes millions to the Misty Lake Lodge and other hotels for housing 2011 flood evacuees.
