A woman who ran for chief of her community of Lake St. Martin last summer is appealing her loss and said vote buying was to blame.
“This has to stop, this vote buying,” said Roseanne Beardy. “This corruption. It’s corrupting our people. And I don’t want our young people to grow up to think that this is normal. This is common. That this is right.”
She believes vote buying is a common practice in Lake St. Martin and stayed away from getting involved with it.
