For Immediate Release
Date: February 24, 2020



I am very grateful for the amendments to the caribou partnership agreement. Local governments have been written into the agreement so we can be part of the process moving forward collectively.

I believe the District of Tumbler Ridge’s continued respectful dialogue with not only the provincial representatives, but also both West Moberly First Nations and Saulteau First Nation, has proven that inclusion can be had by all. I’m very proud of my council, as well as a few of my colleagues’ very difficult decision to continue our commitment to finding common ground within the caribou partnership agreement and the technical working groups.

Believe me, it was a very bumpy road. But I am elated that these amendments were brought forward by Chief Wilson and Chief Cameron on Friday. There is a path forward together!
