MLA praises Heritage Centre

  • Jun. 2, 2008 6:00 p.m.

North Coast MLA Gary Coons delivered glowing praise for the new Haida Heritage Centre at Qay’llnagaay in the Legislature this week, inviting members of the public and the House to the grand opening Aug. 23 in Skidegate. “If you like food, as I’ve noticed most of us in the House do, you’ll be as excited as I am to visit the Eating House where visitors learn about the preparation, presentation and preservation of traditional foods as well as a chance to try delicious Haida cuisine.” Mr. Coons encouraged members on both sides of the House to travel to the islands to sample world famous Haida hospitality and to see the beautiful new centre firsthand. “I’m sure you’ll be stunned not only by the beauty and magnitude of the centre and the culture it showcases but also by the warmth of Haida hospitality,” he said.
