The Community Card was then discussed, the Chief explained the difficulties involved in members using the Card for PST exemption. The Cards could be ready in 3 weeks with the objective being as a fundraiser. There were comments from the floor regarding concerns of possible fraudulent uses of the card. The Chief said he would look deeper into the legal implications of our card being used for Tax exemption and report to the next Elders meeting before proceeding. 

The Chief explained the position of Robert Guyea, that he is Non-political and offers services to all aboriginals. Not just BAFN members.
