quote:Manitoba Hydro has a poor track record of being able to engage in projects of benefit to northern Aboriginal peoples. In fact, wherever they've gone into northern Manitoba, they've left social and environmental wreckage with barely an afterthought. Far too often northern First Nations have had an economy imposed on them that has benefited Manitoba Hydro and outside large-scale resource development interests. It's time for change.
