Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs Suing Government for Nearly 1 Billion Dollars

The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs is suing the Government of Manitoba for almost $1 billion.

 

They claim that being denied the right to open a First Nations Casino has lost them hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.

The suit seeks almost $870 million in combined damages, along with additional court orders designed to increase the gaming market possibilities for First Nations.

Neither the government nor Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries has filed a statement of defence and none of the allegations have been proven in court.
