SASKATOON — The chief of The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations says it will not be signing a relationship agreement with RCMP after officers failed to properly investigate a trespassing complaint on a reserve.

Bobby Cameron says a memorandum of understanding was set to be signed with Mounties this year, but it won’t happen now.

The FSIN complained after a farmer who had been evicted from a reserve east of Regina for failing to pay rent was spotted there last week.

Ochapowace First Nation Chief Margaret Bear says the farmer’s son was attempting to harvest the crop on the property and when staff approached his truck they saw a gun within reach in the vehicle.
