Val-d'Or police allegations: First Nations chiefs outline demands

 


Quebec's First Nations leaders came out of an all-day meeting in Val-d'Or, Que., Tuesday afternoon with a list of four demands for the government to resolve tensions and address the violence that aboriginal women allegedly suffered at the hands of provincial police.
