“On my way to Sapotaweyak Cree Nation to drop off supplies and offer words of support to Chief Genaille and the people. The Bi-pole project traversing through the territory has not earned the trust of the people. The project has been tied into the ‘divide and conquer’ economics that Hydro has used so well in advancing their development interests in our ancestral lands. Our people are not against opportunity, nor are we against someone else’s pursuit of prosperity. The question however that emerges is to what cost are we willing to compromise relationships not just between ourselves and our neighbours, but between ourselves and the lands that have always sustained us.”
