The self-proclaimed Grand Chief of the Confederacy of Aboriginal Peoples of Canada (CAFC), Guillaume Carle, was arrested last week in connection with a police investigation into his organization. Guillaume Carle, 60, who has been active in the Pontiac territory in the past, has been charged with fraud over $ 5,000 and possession and use of forged documents, said the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) in a report.

According to the SQ investigation conducted in collaboration with the Kahnawake Peacekeepers, the Chateauguay police and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, Carle "would have created the CAFC card and falsely conveyed that its holders would benefit from guaranteed rights. to the natives, in particular, in fiscal matters as well as of hunting, thus causing monetary damages to the users ”.

Victims who paid CAFC membership fees were left with monetary losses, but also cheated on invalid entitlements, police said. Moreover, we remind citizens in possession of these cards that they have no legal value. Only the Secure Certificate of Indian Status issued by Indigenous Crown Relations and Northern Affairs Canada is a valid document recognized for exercising certain rights, particularly tax rights provided for in the Indian Act, "said the SQ.

Carle was arrested by special constables at the Gatineau courthouse following the issuance of an arrest warrant. He was at the courthouse in connection with a threat file. He was also charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm without a license, careless storage of a firearm and concealment. Police said seven searches were carried out during the investigation and that documents, guns and ammunition were seized. Guillaume Carle is already facing several other charges at the Gatineau courthouse, including incitement to sexually touching a minor, criminal harassment and disturbing the peace.
