SASKATOON – The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations wants a share of the provincial revenue sharing pie.

This comes on the heels of the Saskatchewan government announcing it would hand out 264 million dollars to urban, rural and northern municipalities, a significant increase from the last time around.

FSIN Chief Perry Bellegarde says First Nations want and need a similar revenue stream and to treat them differently is unacceptable.

He says in addition to the lands and resource wealth, First Nations people pay the provincial sales tax too.
