Paix des Braves 10th anniversary

Politicians and Cree leaders are marking the tenth anniversary of the Paix des braves agreement.

The historic deal signed in 2002 provides billions of dollars to Cree communities in exchange for Hydro development rights.

Several hundred people gathered at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City last night for a symbolic re-signing of the deal.

We hear from Ted Moses, former Cree Grand Chief and former Quebec Premier Bernard Landry who signed the original Paix des braves.

As well, current Quebec Native Affairs minister Geoff Kelley gives his thoughts on what the agreement has meant for Cree communities.
