Dave Gagnon, the president of AAER SYSTEMS Inc./BOLCAR ENERGIE Inc. has appointed Ted Moses, former grand chief of the James Bay Cree of Quebec, to the company's board of directors.

AAER SYSTEMS integrates, manufactures and distributes high capacity wind turbines. Moses is currently president of two Cree companies that are active in the energy and environmental sectors.

Moses became grand chief in 1984 and was chief negotiator for the implementation of the Cree School Board and the Cree Hunters and Trappers Income Security Board. He also played an important role in the negotiation of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, and is signatory of la Prix des Braves with former Quebec premier Bernard Landry.

Moses has been active on the international scene and served as rapporteur for the United Nations seminar on the Effects of Racism and Racial Discrimination on the Social and Economic Relations between Indigenous Peoples and the States. He was given an honorary doctor of laws degree in 1996 by the University of Saskatchewan for his international human rights work and his advocacy on behalf of Aboriginal peoples.

Moses was honored with a second doctor of laws degree by Concordia University in 2005 for his work defending the Cree Nation and in promoting Aboriginal and human rights in Canada and Quebec.
