With the municipal election finished in Powell River, the Tla’amin Nation wants to discuss new ways forward together.
Tla’amin Nation says they are committed to continuing working with the city and advancing reconciliation projects in the region. They add they have a formal invitation to meet with the elected city leaders in November.
They say they will talk about priorities for social, cultural and economic development in the region.
Hegus John Hackett says the Nation and city have a good relationship historically and want to continue their partnership.
“Tla’amin Nation and the City have a successful history of cooperation and collaboration built on the foundational values in our Community Accord,” said Hegus Hackett. “Our Nation looks forward to building upon our strong relationship as we pursue programs and initiatives of shared interest over the years to come.”
The First Nation says they want to “extend their sincere congratulations” to mayor-elect Ron Woznow and councillors Rob Southcott, Jim Palm, Cindy Elliot, Trina Isakson, George Doubt and Earl Almeida.
