Aboriginals hit the Jackpot

No wonder the aboriginals don't pay attention to " the white mans law". It's pretty damn lucrative.
The federal government has awarded more than $1.5 million in contracts this year to a company on the Six Nations reserve that is associated with illegal online gambling.
It's not even like this is a gray area in jurisprudence.
Hosting such an online gaming operation on Canadian soil is an offence under the Criminal Code.
So who's the brains behind all this?
The principals behind SixNet are Jerry Montour and Ken Hill. They are major figures involved in the Six Nations' international cigarette manufacturing business known as Grand River Enterprises, which recently won a $70-million contract to supply smokes to the German army.
