A tri-reserve Drug Awareness March was held on September 23.

Starting at the Cote First Nation (FN) band office, students along with parents of Cote, Keeseekoose and The Key Schools walked to the Keeseekoose Chief’s Education Complex to raise awareness of the drug problem facing the three communities.

Support for the walk included both Chief George Cote of Cote FN and Chief Calvin Straightnose of Keeseekoose FN, along with councillors from the three FNs, Elders and members of the Kamsack Detachment of the RCMP.

“My desire along with Chief Straightnose is to have a safe community for the future ‘Nation builders’ to grow up in,” said Chief Cote, after the march. “I will continue to pray for my Nation and other Nations that are going through this. One day we will live in the glory of God for a united Nation built on respect and love for one another.”
