Reserve mulls fight over smoke ban
New provincial legislation includes native land

By ANDREW HANON AND NICKI THOMAS, SUN MEDIA

Lawyers for the Enoch Cree first nation and the River Cree Resort and Casino spent yesterday poring over Alberta’s Tobacco Reduction Act to determine whether they have a legal fight on their hands.

A spokesman for the resort, located on the Enoch reserve at the western edge of Edmonton, said River Cree’s managers are still confident the law banning smoking across Alberta doesn’t apply to native reserves, which are under federal jurisdiction.
