Hooterville meeting set for May 13

  • Apr. 22, 2009 10:00 a.m.

Everyone, including the Queen Charlotte Council and representatives of the provincial government, are invited to attend an Information Gathering session about the Crown Land known as Hooterville. Kevin Gibson, one of the residents who received a notice of eviction last October but who still occupies his home in the area, is taking care of the details, and ensuring the public attends, but he said the Council of the Haida Nation are inviting the province and the QC Council. Mayor Carol Kulesha confirmed at the April 20 council meeting that she had received a note from the CHN asking if council would attend. “I replied that we would,” she said. The meeting will be held at the Homemakers Hall in Skidegate on May 13 from 10 am until 4pm. Mr. Gibson said the CHN decided to have such a long meeting, to ensure everyone is able to get their concerns on the table. “They want to see a solution,” he said. He hopes everyone, those opposed or in favour of the residents of Hooterville, will come out. “This is your chance to speak with the governments and have your say,” he said.
