NEW BRUNSWICK FIRST NATIONS SET TO BANISH DRUG DEALERS: There is a growing movement on New Brunswick's First Nations to banish drug dealers, as mourners said farewell this week to a woman who died of a drug overdose. Leo Bartibogue, an addictions counsellor, says there are 30 to 40 drug dealers in his community of Esgenoopetitj, in northeastern New Brunswick, and it's hard for people to quit when there's an ample supply of drugs at every turn. Bartibogue attended the 35-year-old woman's funeral on Monday and says it's suspected she may have taken fentanyl — a powerful synthetic opioid drug that has killed hundreds in western Canada but is relatively new to the East Coast. RCMP Cpl. Maxime Babineau said while an autopsy has confirmed an overdose, police have yet to confirm the drug, and are awaiting test results from Health Canada, possibly later this week. Bartibogue said the band council has suggested a resolution to ban drug trafficking, as the Elsipogtog and Tobique First Nations have done, and he's in full support. Tobique Chief Ross Perley said under a banishment resolution passed last week in his community, anyone charged with drug trafficking would be cut off from all band services and benefits.
