Rev. Billy Ottereyes is going into the fire-fighting business.

His new company, called Cree Nation Enterprise, has obtained the exclusive license to make and distribute three innovative fire-safety products throughout Canada.

The former chief of Waswanipi will manufacture a new foam to put out fires, a clear non-flammable lining for wood and a non-flammable additive for paint.

The products have been sold for years in the U.S. by a Native company, Gibson Paints. Ottereyes hopes to start production early next year in a factory based in Val d’Or or Waswanipi. “We will start with modest means and grow according to the demand,” Ottereyes said in a newspaper article. “It’s still too early to say how many jobs we could create.”
