|ATHABASCA CHIPEWYAN FIRST NATION cHIEF ALLAN ADAM|
He is a First Nation chief, a leader, who we should hold to a higher standard of conduct. I believe there is no excuse or rationale for this type of public display in social media. What is he modelling for the youth in our community? Personally, I believe this horrific era in history should never be mocked and most certainly not by any leader. If a federal or provincial politician did this there would be an immediate public outcry.
Indeed, if he thinks there is nothing wrong with posting this image on a social media site how can anyone take him seriously? He is making a mockery of our first nation and if we allow our chief to display this behavior without any ramification from council, we too are culpable.
I've been told that it is no longer on his facebook, I can't confirm it because I don't see his page. However, he did the right thing by removing it.
