Quebec Premier Bernard Landry met in April with the province's Inuit to sign a 25-year hydro power treaty. The deal will provide at least 475 million dollars to the aboriginal economy and allow a surge in the province's hydroelectric production.

Landry explained how both sides would benefit from the deal.
