A mediator has been brought in to work with band councillors and school staff at a First Nations in northern Alberta after a walk-out last week stretched into four days of protests.
Teachers and staff, along with some families that support their stance, picketed near the band office at Whitefish Lake First Nation, demanding that the management team of the local school be dismantled and the acting principal removed.
Protesters said they had collected 350 signatures on a petition supporting their demands for Pakan Elementary and Junior High School. Whitefish Lake First Nation #128 is located about 70 kilometres southeast of Lac La Biche, Alta.
