Some Nain residents are shocked by the alleged actions of one of the Upper Lake Melville (ULM) Ordinary Members.
Max Blake was elected as one of the Ordinary Members for ULM on May 4th.
Blake was allegedly very intoxicated Thursday night at the Atsanik Lodge in Nain.
One witness described Blake’s actions as “shameful.”
Blake was in town for the Tukisinnik Research Forum.
The Nain RCMP has not received any complaints about Blake at this time.
Numerous NG employees, who asked to remain anonymous, say they have complained to President Jim Lyall about Blake’s conduct.
The NG isn’t commenting on the situation at this time.
There is a zero tolerance policy against the consumption of alcohol by elected members while conducting Nunatsiavut business in Nunatsiavut’s code of conduct.
William Barbour was previously removed from his position as Minister of Lands and Resources for breaking that code in 2008.
Attempts to contact Blake have been unsuccessful so far.
