Sandy Bay First Nation Chief Russell Beaulieu shot back at the Manitoba Teachers’ Society today, declaring that his band is up to date for teachers’ payroll.

But Beaulieu acknowledged that Sandy Bay is $13 million in debt overall --- which he blamed on previous administrations --- and has not paid its share of teachers’ benefits or remitted teachers’ contributions to the Canada Revenue Agency since 2012.

Beaulieu angrily rejected the MTS’s demand Tuesday that Ottawa place the band under third-party management. He denied that teachers at Isaac Beaulieu School support their union’s demand, and said there is no morale problem among staff.

The chief said Sandy Bay will pay off its debts, but offered no details.
