Could it be that a mining company in British Columbia has found the right balance between development and relations with local First Nations?

Two First Nations now have revenue sharing agreements possibly worth millions of dollars a year and job training to ensure meaningful employment for a new generation of miners.

APTN National News reporter Rob Smith has this story.
