Two familiar faces will be squaring off to regain the position of chief of the Westbank First Nation, according to the final list of candidates for the WFN election set for Sept. 15.
Roxanne Lindley, a one-term chief who lost to Christopher Derickson in the 2019 election, will be running against Robert Louie, who had been WFN chief from 1986 to 1996 and from 2002 to 2016.
Louie, who owns Indigenous World Winery, was chief during WFN’s push for the ill-fated Lake Okanagan Wellness Centre, a private for-profit hospital. Lindley, daughter of Norman Lindley, the bands first chief, defeated Louie by 34 votes in 2016 to become its first female chief.
