Agreement Aimed At Making Education More Inclusive

Wednesday, June 02, 2010 at 14:50

 

 

Universities across the country have agreed to try and make classes more inclusive and relevant to Aboriginal students.

 

The Deans of Education across Canada have signed an accord with Aboriginal leaders over Indigenous education.

 

The accord is aimed at developing teaching methods that reflect the specific cultural needs of First Nations people.

 

Dr. John Lundy is one of the people who helped design the agreement.

 

He says it centres on respect for Aboriginal traditions and culture.

 

Lundy says the accord also provides a framework under which university programs will be reviewed.

SES Calls For Mapping Of Groundwater Near Oilsands

Wednesday, June 02, 2010 at 14:43

 

 

An environmental group is recommending that residents in northwest Saskatchewan have a map of where their underground water supplies come from before negotiating with Oilsands Quest.

 

Last month, the company applied for approval to construct a steam-assisted gravity drainage project at its Axe Lake discovery site north of La Loche.

 

Peter Prebble is the director of energy and water policy for the Saskatchewan Environmental Society.

 

He says local residents should be told where underwater aquifers are situated before any deals are hammered out.

 

In addition, Prebble says a land use plan should be completed so Oilsands Quest knows where it can build and where it can't.
