First Nations Leaders Speak to Toronto Audience about the Stewardship of their Boreal Lands

We thank our amazing speakers, Grand Chief Stan Louttit, John Cutfeet, and Stephen Kakfwi. CBI's Valérie Courtois was the charming and able host of our event. In addition to our wonderful speakers, electric musical performance by Derek Miller, we were also extremely lucky to be joined by the folks from the University of Toronto's Faculty of Forestry. With so many interested and interesting people there, it's no surprise that the evening was a huge success.
