Black Lake says video about military forcing people to get vaccinated in Saskatchewan community false – APTN

Oct 19, 2021

A Saskatchewan First Nation is denouncing a video that circulated online on Monday claiming that the military was in the community vaccinating people for COVID-19 against their will.

Black Lake, a Denesuline First Nation, located 1,025 km north of Saskatoon, says on Monday, a video circulated online of a man and two women making the claim and that women and children were hiding in the bush.

Black Lake chief and council have since released a statement stating the video is false and “careless.”

“Forced vaccination is not part of the Black Lake First Nation COVID-19 strategy. Black Lake First Nation strongly supports the personal choice and freedom to choose to be vaccinated or remain unvaccinated,” the statement from the band reads.

“The video is not representative of the vaccination efforts in Black Lake first Nation, Saskatchewan.”

The First Nation further asks for concerned citizens to refrain from contacting the band about the video as they are “exhausting its resources.”
