Bernard Shepherd, CEO of said, “After almost 20 years of successful First Nations owned and operated Casinos in Saskatchewan, I decided to become an owner/operator because I believe First Nations need to ‘Occupy the Field” of online gambling. I’ll be operating under the same Inherent, Treaty, Constitutional and Sovereign rights as when I opened the first Indian Casino in Canada on February 26, 1993. Our Forefathers traded globally 100 plus years ago and Entrepreneurship has been in our DNA for 10,000 plus years, this is what November 6, 2012 is going to stand for.”
