Scope and contentThis file contains a presentation by Sam Horton whose organization recently acknowledged that "Ontario Hydro is really a company which failed to respect the Aboriginal people as individuals and nations with a proud history that were inhabitants of this land since time immemorial." Horton states that the presentation is more a status report on Ontario Hydro's experiences in working with Aboriginal people in Ontario. The Aboriginal Advisory Steering Committee, formed several years ago, continues to have direct discussions with First Nations leaders on the environmental impact of hydro projects. A question-and-answer session with the Commissioners follows the presentation.
