The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -THI LITHMIDai HMALD JttMiowy M, Quebec offers natives million MONTREAL (CP) Premier Robert Bourassa made public Friday his government's proposal to the natives of the James Bay region, a proposal which in- cludes monetary com- pensation as high as mil- lion and changes to the 16 bil- lion hydroelectric develop- ment in the region. Mr. Bourassa told a news conference that he was releas- ing the made to the natives Nov. in- form the public and to answer criticism, particularly from English Quebecers, of his government's attitude toward the negotiations with the In- dians and Eskimos. Disclosure of the offer com- es while native leaders and their lawyers are visiting the northern native settlements to discuss the negotiations with the Indians and to find out what they consider necessary in terms of compensation and modifications The offer includes million in cash over 10 years, up to million in royalties from development of the area's resources and elimina- tion of three planned reser- voirs in the La Grande River system. MADE IN NOVEMBER The outline of the offer was first made to the native's representatives Nov. 29 by John Ciaccia, national assembly member and the premier's special represen- tative in talks with the natives, who have steadfastly opposed the project since it was announced nearly three years ago. Mr. Bourassa said the government has not yet received a counter-proposal from the natives Under the proposal, the gov- ernment would grant the na- tives property rights to square miles in the 135.000- square-mile territory, the land they are "currently oc- cupying in an active the premier said. They would also be granted hunting, fishing and trapping rights on all the land in the territory not occupied by the project's installations. The other major elements of the offer include measures to save or replace fish and game in areas affected by the project and to protect the sandy shores of Governor's Island at the mouth of La Grande River where Fort George is located; assistance for the natives to allow them to participate in the project, set up their own enterprises such as tourist facilities or continue a life of hunting, trapping and fishing; of a native development corporation own- ed by the natives to use the cash and royalty money payments for local development; tax-exempt status of the native development cor- poration; native participation in the government of the region. Mr. Bourassa said the changes in the project would not increase its cost and that the changes in the reservoirs and diversion of rivers might increase the amount of electric power to be produced by the four dams and powerhouses on La Grande River, 600 miles north of Montreal. Hunting bill killed in Montana HELENA, Mont. (AP) A bill which would have limited the number of Montana big game licences issued to hunters from out of state was killed in the Montana Senate, because of a technicality. The measure also would have increased IS different fees for hunting and fishing.
