National Aboriginal Economic Development Board.

The National Aboriginal Economic Development Board has a new member. The Minister of Industry David Emerson has appointed retired Lac La Ronge Indian chief Harry Cook to a three-year term. Cook has extensive private sector experience in manufacturing and has served on a number of boards and committees, including Cameco Corporation, Prince Albert Development Corporation and Wapawekka Lumber Ltd. He was president of Kitsaki Management Limited Partnership, the corporate arm of the Lac La Ronge Indian band. He has helped foster new business that involved many bands and Metis communities in various ventures, such as wild rice, catering and trucking.

"Mr. Cook has a unique understanding of the issues facing Aboriginal entrepreneurs today," said Emerson. "His background and business experience will be valuable to the board's work and I am pleased that he has accepted this important responsibility."
