Matthew Coon Come clarifies Cree position on forestry conflicts

matthew.jpegThe Cree Nation government says it will now participate in a mediation process in a conflict with Resolute Forest Products. The Quebec Government has named Lucien Bouchard as the mediator. It's an attempt to resolve a dispute between Crees and the company over its forestry practices in the Saguenay-Lac St. Jean region. Originally the Crees said they were never consulted and would not participate in the process. But now the Cree government has changed its mind. 
Christopher Herodier spoke with Grand Chief Matthew Coon Come for clarification.
