AFN annual general assembly happens July 5-7 in Vancouver
The Assembly of First Nations is holding its annual general assembly from July 5-7 in Vancouver. AFN National Chief RoseAnne Archibald, pictured, who was suspended on June 17 after she spoke out publicly about what she considers 'fictitious attacks' against by the AFN in an attempt to stop her from 'uncovering wrongdoing at the AFN.' She said in a statement before this week's AGM that the AFN executive committee does not have the legal jurisdiction to suspend her, and had usurped the powers of the Confederacy of Nations.
