FORT ST. JOHN, B.C.  – Incoming Blueberry River First Nation Chief, Judy Desjarlais, says a fraudulent letter appearing to be sent from her is circulating around industry.

In a post on Facebook, Desjarlais says the letter alerts recipients of her position and business.

However, Desjarlais doesn’t officially  take the seat of outgoing Chief Yahey until February 14th and doesn’t have access to letterheads until that point.

“I have not sent any letter and would not send out a letter in such manner as that is not how I roll,” Desjarlais said in her post.

“I have been respectful of the transition period and courteous with my time. Please be assured that anything we do on behalf of our Nation and as leaders will be done in a transparent manner.”

She adds that if she sees the letter and it has been fraudulently done, it will be dealt with.
