Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples - Transcriptions of Public Hearings and Round Table Discussions
File contains a presentation by Max Morin, Metis Society of Saskatchewan, Regional Director - Chairman, Gabriel Dumont Institute. Morin discusses the problems faced by the Metis people in northern Saskatchewan, and complains that multinational corporations have more rights to the land than its rightful owners (the Metis themselves). Morin also discusses how wealth has been extracted from the region with no benefit to the people living there, who have actually gone into debt. Morin sees the way forward for the Metis as dependent upon good education for his people. Morin discusses the Canoe Lake roadblock, and invites the Commissioners to go and speak with the people there.
