KAMLOOPS —    A member of a Kamloops-area First Nation band has been ordered to keep away from more than a dozen people and to pay 25-thousand dollars in security costs.

A BC Supreme Court justice has ruled that Peter August-Sjodin's multiple court filings show his intent to intimidate and frustrate the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band.

Justice Hope Hyslop says the man was banned from several of the First Nation's properties -- including its offices, a gas station and a daycare in early 2015 -- but he continued to show up and harass people.

Hyslop describes the man's allegations and the legal basis for them as scandalous, frivolous and vexatious.(The Canadian Press)
