Earl Blain has been a councillor for 6 years and believes in helping all members of the community. He is the grandson of the first Chief of the Ashcroft Band, Chief Scotty who was chief for over 20 years. Earl believes education is the key to self-sufficiency and is a strong supporter of helping members attend university all over Canada.
Before he became a councillor, Earl worked for McGavins Bread for over 35 years and was a hugely successful thoroughbred race horse trainer for many years. He is proud of the recent economic developments on reserve and foresees great projects and opportunities in the near future that will benefit the community. Earl loves this area and can usually be found in the mountains (which makes him hard to reach!) getting firewood for community members and playing spending time with his 8 grandkids.
