Stoney Nakoda First Nation protests Bill C-45

Members of the Stoney Nakoda First Nation in Morley exercised a peaceful protest Sunday afternoon.

About 200 people blocked one lane of the Trans-Canada Highway in joining other first nations to protest the federal government's Bill C-45.

The legislation includes changes to the Indian Act that aboriginal people claim may affect the way reserve lands are leased and the way decisions are made involving band territories.
