First Nations should be prepared for major conflict: Nelson



APTN National News
Former Roseau River chief Terry Nelson held an unofficial campaign event Thursday.

Nelson is running for national chief of the Assembly of First Nations.

He held a public forum to share his thoughts about the possibility of a conflict between First Nations and the Canadian military.

Nelson says the likelihood is small, but First Nations should be prepared.

Queen’s University professor and retired Lt.-Col. Douglas Bland was on hand with Nelson.

He lent expertise and knowledge of the Canadian military to the crowd.

    Finally someone is thinking about making noise nationally as a conserted effort from First Nations needs to happen in an effort to get our voice heard. Hopefully a person like this gets in as chief of the AFN. It is efforts like these that Canada needs to understand may happen if they continue on their plight to do away with the Treaties and the Indian Act.
