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.
