It’s another three years for Scott McLeod as Chief of the Nipissing First Nation (NFN).
McLeod easily defeated five challengers,picking up 483 votes in Friday’s election.
McLeod’s vote tally remained unofficial as of Saturday afternoon and still had to be confirmed by NFN’s electoral officer.
McLeod’s margin of victory was about equal to all votes garnered by his challengers.
That would put the total number of NFN residents voting for their Chief at more than 900, making the turnout easily the highest the First Nation has had in its history.
The 2016 Census lists the population of Nipissing First Nation at 1,590 people.
McLeod told the Nugget he was very happy with the results.
