Peters v. Peters
What if those people were elected public servants, and they used their positions to push you away?
What if you did everything you could to show them that they are wrong, but they still pushed you away?
What if you asked the government for help, and they just turned away?
What if all of it was about land and money? Greed?
How would that make you feel? Would you give up?
Not us. We’ve decided to fight the system. Unfortunately, that comes at a price.
The only way to fight this type of injustice is to call on Lady Justice herself: the Court System.
So we’ve had to hire some lawyers and throw money at the problem, and we have filed in the Federal Court of Canada.
Here is the name of our Federal Court Application (obviously not tried in Court yet): Federal Court File no. T-2107-16. It can be viewed online at the Federal Court Registry, Western Division.
Here's a Dropbox Link: T-2107-16 .
Unfortunately, we are not made of money.
And that’s where you come in: please donate to our cause.
We are going to beat the system, and we are going to set a precedent for other people in the same disadvantaged situation.
Our case(s) will be used as examples for other people to use in Courts all across Canada; perhaps even yours.
Please help us to win. Please donate to our cause.
Your money will be used to fight (and win) our existing Court cases. Any money left over will be donated to other people needing money for Court in similar situations, and we will let you know where it goes. The more you donate, the more injustices will get fixed.
Please watch our video. It will explain things a little better. There are actual people (entire families) being affected here.
We will post regular updates for you. (**NEW ON DEC 19: WE NOW HAVE UPDATES THAT INTRODUCE YOU TO GUY, BRANDON, AND AMBER!!)

Indian Affairs registered her as a 6(2) Indian after April 17, 1985. Her father has been a Peters Band Member for all of his life, and so have all of his grandfather’s ancestors in recorded history.
The history of Amber’s registration as an Indian is somewhat confusing, but suffice it to say that Peter’s Band didn’t help much. She has never been a Member of Peters Band, even though her family believed she already was.
She applied in 2013, but her Application was basically ignored by Council, and eventually fell by the wayside as Amber had no money for a lawyer to fight the Council.
Council currently says she’s “not entitled” to be a Member of the Band, with no reasons why, and that decision is part of the subject of our Court case.
Council is using Band money to pay their lawyer to fight this.
Amber does not receive any Band disbursements and/or benefits.
She cannot afford a lawyer.
She is due to have her first child any day.
I know Lee Peters has been denied his status from Peters road as well.... he would be someone to contact and have at your side. Him n his kids. I don't understand how a band can execute you from your own land n band. This to me sounds ridiculous..... GET JUSTICE take back your ownership and fight. Osiyam hands go up to u
We wish your family great success! We fought the disenrollment battle beginning 1995. Ended in the court of appeals at the 9th Circuit 2012. Hundreds of thousands dollars spent and still owe and we even had pro bono help on an amicus brief. Wish we could help, but we truly support your cause.
Hope that all rightfully Peter's Band members are fully recognized and justice prevails. I donated and will step forward to help in anyway I can because this effects my son. He is my reason.
If you are uncomfortable with the "politics" part of this, or just shy or private by nature :-) you can always contact us directly or donate anonymously. Thanks for everyone's help (we are trending)!! Let's see if this can go viral!!
