WINNIPEG - The chief of a remote First Nation in Manitoba is facing sex charges.
Eight counts have been laid against 65 year old Raymond Keeper of Little Grand Rapids including sexual assault with a weapon and luring a person under 18.
RCMP began their investigation last month after receiving reports of inappropriate text messages between and older man and a 16 year old girl.
Investigators who believe there may be more victims are asking anyone with information about the case to contact them.
Keeper is expected in court on November 21st.
Manitoba Hydro recently restored power to Little Grand Rapids, allowing the community's residents to return home after living in Winnipeg hotels because of damage done by wildfires.
