    Crees give $58K for Wesley Prankard's playgrounds

    Cree band councils and entities have dug into their budgets to help a non-Aboriginal kid from southern Ontario build playgrounds in Ontario Cree communities. At the annual general assembly in Waskaganish, 13-year-old Wesley Prankard told the story of how he's been trying to help the people of Attawapiskat. Quebec Crees responded by pitching in $58,000. Listen here to excerpts from Wesley Prankard's presentation, followed by comments from Matthew Happyjack of Air Creebec about how he's helping with Prankard's project.
