James SA LeonSts’ailes has taken an active approach to restorative justice issues which are collaboratively addressed by the Health, Snowoyelh and Aboriginal Rights & Title Departments, and supported by the RCMP First Nations Policing Unit. Incidents addressed include:

  • Drug dealing
  • Theft  
  • Poaching wildlife and fish
  • Speeding, unlicensed drivers and uninsured vehicles
  • Family violence

Plans exist to develop our traditional restorative justice practices into a fully staffed and operational department. We currently need more resources to continue this promising initiative.
