The CBC 2:30 PM radio news from Vancouver is reporting that members of the Native Youth Movement are currently occupying offices of the Westbank First Nation Band Council offices in protest against that administration's participation in the BC Treaty Commission process. The Westbank Indian Band Council's participation in BC's bogus "treaty process" is reportedly proceeding without the consent of band members or the Okanagan Nation.

More information will follow as it becomes available.
