Study Highlights:

14 out of 20 respondents mentioned they find their aboriginal sources online through band websites, though four mentioned you need to be on the ground rather than on the phone. Others mentioned that they get to know band chiefs who can then connect them to other people.

Oil sands impact on Aboriginal communities was mentioned by one journalist as a driving issue.
