Crees refuse to participate in Bouchard-run mediation of Resolute dispute

bouchard.jpgQuebec has named former premier Lucien Bouchard to mediate a conflict that involves the Crees and Resolute Forest Products. But the Cree Nation Government says it will not participate in the mediation process. Resolute is a huge forestry company with operations in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean area, a region that is not covered by the JBNQA but where Cree rights are protected under the Baril-Moses Agreement signed in 2002. To clarify the Cree government's position on this, Christopher Herodier spoke with Executive Director Bill Namagoose.
