Monday Morning – Resource North Insight
By Denis Delisle
Monday coffee and all is abuzz; the interconnection is starting; deals, work, plans and catching up with old acquaintances and making new ones.
Melanie Karjala works for Resources North, a non-profit group whose purpose is to create a way of having potential resources users work together with Aboriginal people so that they all come out as winners. Integrated resource management at a strategic level for multiple bands in one area, working with forestry, mining, tourism and other users of the land finding common ground or not. Resources North has no interest for any one sector but would be the catalyst to have communities grow and prosper. Resources North supports the meetings, supplies materials and researchs for collaboration between different sectors. Obviously the Aboriginal people want to bring about some sort of land planning with themselves and other users of their inherited lands to make this work. It was the first time Resource North has attended come Roundup and impressed by the different people involved in the mining business. Find more by going to: www.resourcesnorth.org
