REGINA -- First Nations chiefs in Andrew Scheer's home riding say they haven't seen much of him in advance of Monday's federal vote, and feel like they're not a priority for the Conservative leader.

Scheer has represented Regina-Qu'Appelle since 2004. It's a sprawling urban-rural riding which includes the northern part of Regina, Fort Qu'Appelle to the northeast and 12 First Nations.

"The hugest downfall that Scheer has is he's been MP of this riding for how long, and he's come out to our community to try to engage with us once," says Piapot First Nation Chief Jeremy Fourhorns.
