Liidlii Kue re-elects Antoine as Chief

Gerry Antoine has been re-elected as the chief of the Liidlii Kue First Nation. The community’s traditional name translates into where the two rivers meet. The election was held in Fort Simpson last week.

Antoine won with 87 votes. In second was former Dehcho Grand Chief Herb Norwegian with 76 votes, Howard Hardisty received 26, and Steven Jose, who dropped out of the race, received 30.

 

Eight councillors were also elected:

Kele Antoine, 143 votes

Brian Martineau, 138 votes

Sharon Allen, 127 votes

William Michaud, 125 votes

Ernest McPherson, 111 votes

Hilda Tsetso, 111 votes

Catherine Nahanni, 109 votes

Eric Menicoche, 101 votes

Cazon said she was surprised by the high number of candidates for chief, but the number of candidates for council was fairly normal for the Dehcho community.
