STAND OFF AB – Blood Tribe Council has had ongoing concerns with respect to persons entering on the Blood Reserve for purposes related to the unlawful use and distribution of drugs to the detriment of Blood Tribe members.
Blood Tribe Council has taken several steps to minimize the impacts of the fentanyl/drug crisis on the Blood Reserve and to ensure the safety of Blood Tribe members. Enacting the Trespass Bylaw is one of the steps that Council has taken as part of the overall Drug Strategy.
The trespass bylaw was passed on May 13th and is set to come into effect.
The First Nation will require visitors to have a permit to enter the community. The permits will be available for extended periods, and community members will not need any permit.
