Nooksack 306 Evictions DELAYED Due to Bad Weather. Chairman Ross Cline Vows the Elderly WILL BE EVICTED

 Not because it was to protect the elderly residents from the planned eviction, but because the jack booted tribal police couldn't brave the snow and ice, according to the N306's tribal attorney Gabe Galanda

Tribal Chairman Ross Cline confirmed in an email to Indian Country Today on Wednesday that the recent poor weather appeared to have delayed the eviction process but didn’t say how long he expected the pause to last.|

Mr. Ross Cline,
Anyone can dress to look like an Indian but a real Indian has an Indian HEART.
