I am ever grateful to you for arranging the trip to Great Whale and inviting me. It could not have been a more interesting and meaningful experience. I learned a great deal.
We discussed as immediate steps the following three items :
- Assemblyman Hoyt and I will schedule a legislative hearing in New York City towards the end of September, at which we hope Mayor Dinkins, among others, will testify, as well as representatives of the Crees.
- Hoyt and I are sending a letter to Cuomo about the issue and asking him to meet with the leaders of the Cree.
- A letter on behalf of the environmental organizations should be sent to Governor Cuomo. Robert Kennedy said he would take care of this.
Let's keep in touch.
