WHEREAS the New Post Band raised this concern in the past, but met only minimal success, and;

WHEREAS the New Post Band received $200,000.00 with the support of the Mushkegowuk Council during the 1986-87 fiscal year with New Post Band having failed to make it explicit that this contribution continue, and;
