It was hard to tell which agenda item was bringing them all out as each seemed to elicit comments. MCA videotapes their general meetings and publishes them online via Youtube. For those unable to attend, this is a good way to keep up to date on council business. However, certain content, such as land claims information, is edited out, as it is not for the general public but for Akwesasne m...
