Chiefs of Ontario Election
THUNDER BAY – The Chiefs of Ontario are holding elections this June. Chief Isadore Day from Serpent River is taking to the roads of Ontario to meet with Chiefs and people in the communities to listen and gather insights and share a vision for the future.
Travelling through Thunder Bay, Chief Day was able to take some time to stop by the NetNewsLedger newsroom to talk about issues concerning First Nations.
The series of interviews will be posted over the coming days. NetNewsLedger has made offers to all of the candidates seeking the position of Ontario Regional Chief to come in to share.
Chief Day says that people are expressing to him that “They want to be heard” and that increasingly it is a land issue.
Chiefs and the First Nations people are talking increasingly about having role on treaty rights. “Young people are very concerned about their future, and they want a part in what happens”, stated Chief Day.
“Youth are very savvy when it comes to using new technology to network,” adds Chief Day.
