Grand Chief CoonCome congratulates the Cree Nation for their participation in the referendum. In particular he stated: "The Cree youth came out in great numbers to support their Nation and I am very proud to see the next generation of Cree leaders coming forth to exercise their right to self-determination. I will never forget the messages that were twittered among the youth around the Nation encouraging others to vote and to get involved. I am also grateful for the creative efforts of Christopher Herodier and Paul Napash who collaborated in writing and performing the James Bay Island Song. Our "islands of hope" are part of our Nation of hope.Official results are available here.
Information sessions will be held in each of the Cree communities, at the GCC(EI) offices in Montreal and Ottawa, and at such other locations as the Referendum Committee may determine. The Local Referendum Offcer will post the date, time and location of the information session to be held in the community where the polling centre for which he/she is responsible is located. The dates and times of the sessions are subject to change.
