Tsuut’ina chief Roy Whitney has been defeated in his bid for re-election.
Unofficial results from Tuesday’s vote show former Tsuut’ina teacher and Mount Royal University instructor Lee Crowchild defeated Roy Whitney.
70% of Nation members turned out to cast ballots.
The result is subject to a five-day review and the chief-elect won’t be available for comment until those results are official.
Crowchild ran on a platform of promoting the Nation’s culture and spirituality, preserving the environment and promised a prudent, transparent and responsible administration.
