Saskatchewan First Nations collect liquor tax at casinos

Five First Nations have signed agreements with Saskatchewan to collect a liquor tax at their casinos.

The tribes are collecting the same 10 percent tax as the province's. The revenues will be used to fund local projects.

A pilot project with the Whitecap Dakota First Nation, owner of the Dakota Dunes Casino, resulted in $15,000 in revenues in one month.
