We applaud the leadership and integrity shown by the Saulteau to communicate as openly as possible about the importance of caribou recovery.”
PRRD says they have repeatedly asked the Province to display a similar level of
openness in their communications.
“The Peace River Regional District has repeatedly asked the Province to display a similar level of transparency and openness in their communications, to no avail. This public outreach by the Saulteau First Nations demonstrates that the Saulteau people recognize that they are people of the Peace and that they want to work together with all stakeholders to arrive at solutions that can be supported by all.”
The Regional District Board says they look forward to future opportunities to engage on this important topic with all stakeholders and governments.
