High Native voter turnout tied to incentive payment

In the last federal election, the Roseau River First Nation in Manitoba had a 100 percent voter turnout but some politicians are crying foul.

The tribe offered up to $30 in a combination of cash and coupons to tribal members who voted. Chief Terry Nelson says the incentive included $10 cash.

The Conservative Party is calling for an investigation. Nelson supports the rival Liberal Party.
