A Full Waskaganish Experience

EPC Commissioners, Staff and Chairperson – Mandy Gull – with our hosts at Smokey Hill.

After spending most of the last few weeks working on the development of communication tools to raise awareness of the Eeyou Planning Commission (EPC), its mandates and achievements, the EPC Commissioners met again at the end of September in Waskaganish. The meeting was filled with interesting discussions to establish an action plan for the coming months.

We also took advantage of our presence in Waskaganish to have a complete traditional experience – Thanks to the support and organization of Barbara Hester, EPC Commissioner for Waskaganish.¬†We went to Smokey Hill and we were received at Elizabeth Diamond’s cabin (Wife of late Grand-Chief Billy Diamond) where delicious fish meals were cooked for us by her, Margaret Hester, Leonard & Victoria Hester (Parent’s of Barbara).

Following this meeting, we can say that we have a lot to do in the coming year and we will continue to keep you informed of our work through the EPC newsletter and Facebook page.
