First Nation's lifetime chief goes to Federal Court to preserve position

The lifetime chief of a First Nation in northern Ontario has gone to the Federal Court of Canada to try to stop the attempt to topple his decades-long rule. The Ojibway Nation of Saugeen, located about 400 kilometres north of Thunder Bay, filed for a judicial review with the Federal Court in Winnipeg on Feb. 1 to quash a move by community members to install new leadership under the band's customary laws.
