The Cree Nation in Quebec stepped up and had its say in Val d’Or Wednesday.

Representatives were testifying at inquiry examining the relationship between certain public services in Quebec and Indigenous peoples.

Many Cree live or visit Val d’Or  – but the relationship with residents and public services is often acrimonious.

“These problems are well known, and so are their causes,” said Matthew Coon Come, grand chief, Crees Nation government. “What has been lacking today is the will to address them.”
