I apologize for the confusion surrounding the Wellness Payment. This was a result of improper communication and technical issues. I want to thank Finance for staying late last night to ensure cheques were run and for coming in on Saturday to work on the Electronic Transfer Payments. I also want to thank the cheque signers who came in last night and signed cheques. I also thank Lands, Membership and Research for coming in on Saturday to ensure Members could pick up their cheques. Also a thank you to those councillors who assisted. Finally, a thank you to communications for being available on the weekend. I am told that those who did not pick up their cheques today (Saturday) can do so at Lands and Membership Office this week. I am assured that electronic payments will be in members’ accounts as early as Tuesday afternoon.

Thank you for your patience.

Chief R. Stacey Laforme
