Wendake has a new Grand Chief. This news is a monumental shift for the Huron-Wendat population, which voted in Konrad Siouï as their new leader. Voting started Friday but conclusive results came in only on Saturday. By the second round of counting ballots, it became clear that the news was real and definitive.
