As Deputy Chief, in charge of Natural Resources Management, Bill's philosophy and vision of uniting all Metis peoples, and the belief that membership is not defined by a geographical region, are the cornerstone of his mandate to assert our people’s right to access natural resources, including hunting, fishing and gathering medicine.

His traditional ways greatly influenced him. Bill was taught  to respect the land and the creatures that inhabit it. He has guided in Northern Quebec for Caribou and also has done some moose guiding in Northern Ontario. Bill has traveled to James Bay area on many occasions enjoying and partaking in traditional activities.
