A Westman First Nation is in a Brandon courtroom today fighting the province over the sale of of cheap cigarettes.


The Dakota Nation, near Pipestone claims it is their right to sell cheaper smokes on their land, but the province says the practice is illegal.


Grand Chief Derek Nepinak tells CKLQ the matter goes beyond the issue of the sale of cheap tobacco.                                  




The Grant Chief believes this will be a long drawn out court battle.
