Community members in Little Buffalo, Alta. are demanding answers about where millions of dollars were spent.
The community, located about 400 kilometres northwest of Edmonton, is surrounded by the oil and gas industry. It’s part of a First Nation that runs the Cree Development Corporation (CDC), a non-profit that has generated millions through contracts with the energy industry.
Despite that, Cheryl Ominayak, who has lived in Little Buffalo for 28 years, says her way of life has changed very little. She draws water from a barrel and uses an outhouse.
