Scope and contentFile contains a presentation by Mary Desmoulin providing a brief history of the Sault Ste. Marie Friendship Centre. She describes the Friendship Centre's goal as "improving the quality of life for Aboriginal people in an urban environment by supporting self-determined activities which encourage both equal access to partnership in Canadian society and in Aboriginal culture. Desmoulin also expresses concern for children, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, with recent government cutbacks on child care. She calls on the Commission to appeal to the Canadian government to stop any cuts in funding relating to children's programs. Following the presentation is a question-and-answer session with the Commissioners.
