Hydro-Quebec and Crees Reach Accord

2002-03-11 [SolarAccess.com] Hydro-Quebec has concluded an accord between the Government of Quebec and the Grand Council of the Crees. Last week, Hydro-Quebec’s Board of Directors ratified a series of agreements and accords between the company and the James Bay Crees concerning the Eastmain-1 project and the proposed partial diversion of the Rupert River. The Crees and Hydro-Quebec signed nine agreements and accords dealing with the development of hydroelectric potential, mercury, and training and employment for James Bay Crees. They also agreed on a new mechanism for settling past disputes. If the Rupert Diversion project is accepted, Hydro-Quebec will abandon its plans to build the Nottaway-Broadback-Rupert complex as provided for in the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement.
