THUNDER BAY – Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day states that on Monday, there will be a huge and historical step forward in Ontario as the province will sign a political accord with the Chiefs of Ontario. The move has been coming for over a year, and came about over concerns that the Chiefs of Ontario as a political body representing Ontario First Nations was only meeting with the Premier and Cabinet once a year.

Chief Day says that the move brings recognition to the special rights that First Nations people and nations have in Ontario and in Canada.

The Ontario Regional Chief says that by working together, Ontario will see greater results.

Citing Ontario’s fiscal issues, Chief Day states that by working with First Nations leaders many of the issues can be overcome.

Hydro One Sell-off

Chief Day is deeply concerned, and says “Ontario has made a mis-step in the plan to sell-off Hydro One”.

“Much of the infrastructure runs through our nations and traditional lands”, adds Chief Day.
