In fact, changes were agreed to later,
including an agreement to relocate the site of the dam that had been moved back
to its original location. A move to an alternative site other than that agreed
to was requested by the corporation because construction at the agreed upon site
proved to be technically impossible. Although a third site was available, the
Cree agreed to let the original land be used, as long as construction camps were
located further away. The decision appears to have been influenced by hunters'
doubts about the survival of fish at the site given the changes in the flow of
the river. The severity of the expected changes made construction there acceptable
in the end. With the funds the corporation paid for the right to relocate the
dam, the community relocated the village from Fort George Island to a new site
at Chisasibi on the shore of the river.
