Some members of the Burns Lake Indian Band are demanding their chief and a councillor resign, over concerns relating to natural resource development projects.

Chief Albert Gerow and Coun. Dan George have been asked to step down by Coun. Ron Charlie and some members of the on-reserve community.

"A lot of the members are afraid of what Albert and Dan are agreeing to behind closed doors and without any consultation with on-reserve members,” Charlie said.

Critics say Gerow hasn't consulted with people living on reserve about potential natural resource development projects, particularly involving oil and gas.

Charlie has also asked the Department of Aboriginal Affairs to conduct a forensic audit of the band's finances.

You have the right to oversee what your C & C are doing, if you feel that they are not representing your best interests, have them removed.

I wish you luck in your endeavour, it's common in every reserve, once they are elected, they feel that they own the world.

Good work, don't give up.
