Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen is making his first visit to the islands for 2007. Some details are still being worked out says Matt Pearson from Mr. Cullen’s Ottawa office, but the MP arrives in Sandspit on Saturday, January 13. On Sunday, he’ll attend the feast held at the Haida Heritage Centre in honour of the three poles recently raised. Monday he goes to Queen Charlotte Secondary to address the Grade 11 Social Sciences class. Following that he has a meeting with CHN president Guujaaw and then he continues to Masset where he will meet with the new Gwaii Trust chair Ken Rea. Mr. Cullen hasn’t been on the islands since July, so looks forward to connecting with islanders again, says Mr. Pearson. He flies from Queen Charlotte to Prince Rupert on Tuesday morning.
