Grand Council fights back over Strateco court challenge

The Grand Chief of the Cree Nation says Strateco Resources is trying to circumvent his people's treaty rights. On January 18, the mining company launched a court action against the Quebec government to force a decision about the Matoush uranium exploration project. The mining company is also asking the court to void a condition created by the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, that the company demonstrate the project has the support of the Cree Nation. The Cree Nation is opposed to the Matoush project and has called for a moratorium against all uranium development in Cree territory. Roderick Rabbitskin spoke with Grand Chief Matthew Coon Come to find out what the Grand Council plans to do about it.
