Whapmagoostui chief supports youth journey

Chief Stanley George of Whapmagoostui is helping a couple of local youth plan their two-month walk from the northern-most Cree community all the way to Ottawa. The youth want to show their support for Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, and also to show the strength of Cree culture. The journey has been delayed because the route is not fully frozen. Melissa Natachequan spoke with Chief George for an update.
