Sandspit should sign protocol agreement, says resident

  • Jan. 21, 2008 12:00 p.m.

The protocol agreement, land use planning and Haida Title were on Sandspit resident Marcy Mathers’s mind when she spoke as a delegate at the most recent Moresby Island Management Committee meeting. She submitted a letter as well, but at the meeting held on Jan. 16 at the committee office beside SuperValu, she asked the committee members three questions. First, she wanted to know when a land use plan map would be created and put up in the office, so that she and others could educate themselves and contribute to the future details. She also asked whether the committee was considering signing the Protocol Agreement and urged the members to do so. Her third point was regarding settling the Haida Title question. She suggested MIMC write a letter in support of Haida Title. “I think something needs to be done,” she said. MIMC chair Gail Henry thanked Ms Mathers for her presentation and said the committee would respond to her in writing.
