Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak - Grand Chief, Dr. Sydney Garrioch (November 2008)
"Thank you for your firm’s work for the MKO Chiefs in various matters over the years, including your representation of our interests in intervening in the Supreme Court of Canada in 2006 in the case of McDiarmid Lumber Ltd v. God’s Lake First Nation in regards to the garnishment of federal First Nations transfer payments, and in intervening in the Manitoba Court of Appeal in 2007 in the case of Manitoba v. Jenkinson regarding the Manitoba smoking ban on reserve. As a result of your work, the MKO Chiefs were able to present to both courts a unique northern First Nations perspective on the history and impacts on our First Nations governments and communities."
