Ted Quewezance is former chief of the Keeseekoose First Nation and a residential school survivor.

CBC Saskatchewan reported yesterday that Mr. Quewezance attended the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), where he made an emotional plea for their support to help the aboriginal peoples of Canada gain access to a medical system that has historically not served them well.
