Mushkegowuk Tribal Council Comments on the Scoping of the Environmental Assessment of DeBeers' Victor Project at Attawapiskat on James Bay

Mushkegowuk Council is the regional organization that represents the interests of seven Cree First Nations in the James Bay Basin of North-Eastern Ontario. Besides Attawapiskat First Nation, it includes three other remote communities on the shores of James Bay: Moose Cree, Fort Albany and Kashechewan First Nations. It also includes three road accessible communities: Taykwa Tagamou (New Post), Chapleau Cree and Missanabie Cree First Nations. Mushkegowuk Council sees the Victor Project as a critically important project, first of all for Attawapiskat First Nation and its aspirations, and secondly as a precedent-setting project that will affect future resource development in the Mushkegowuk region.
