Manitoba Mayors vote to remove suspended Grand Chief Aaren Dumas

The Mayors of Manitoba voted to remove the suspended Mayor Aalen Dumas at a special general meeting in Winnipeg on Friday.

Dozens of Manitoba chieftains gathered at his Downs in Assiniboia to hold a vote of no confidence, formally removing Dumas from office.

Dumas was suspended in March. An investigation is pending into allegations that he was involved in workplace sexual harassment and sexually assaulted an employee who was unnamed at the time. The employee called the police, but no charges have been filed.

Following the allegations, Congress ordered a third-party investigation, which found that Dumas had been sexually harassing him at work.

Shauna Fontaine later },, and expressed disappointment with AMC and the police response to her report.

Earlier this week, Dumas announced that he would seek trauma-based therapy to "start healing not just from the events of the past five months, but from a lifetime of trauma," he said.

Fontaine's allegations are not the first time Dumas has been accused of sexual misconduct. In 2019, 22-year-old employee Bethany Maytwayashing claimed she sent her inappropriate texts her messages. 

He denied the accusations and later took a leave of absence to "heal."

Dumas said he was elected AMC's Grand His Chief for the first time in 2017 and was re-elected last summer.
