Port wants protocol meeting

  • Apr. 5, 2006 8:00 a.m.

Port Clements is asking the Council of the Haida Nation to hold a public protocol meeting as soon as possible to discuss the ongoing negotiations between the provincial government and the CHN.
“We need to write and suggest it’s high time we had a meeting,” said Port mayor Cory Delves at Monday night’s council meeting (April 3). “Suggested items for the agenda are where the negotiations are at, what’s happening with alternate power, maybe even the ferries need to be thrown in there.”
There hasn’t been a protocol meeting since just before the municipal elections were held last November. According to the protocol agreement which Port and Masset signed with the CHN in 2004, “a schedule of meetings will be prepared monthly, quarterly or otherwise as need be, as agreed to by the parties and consultation and consideration of the topics for discussion. All meetings will be public and open.”
The agreement doesn’t specify how exactly communities go about calling a protocol meeting, but Port council members decided the best approach was to call the CHN.
Mr. Delves said he has been getting several queries from Sandspit residents about how the protocol agreement has affected Port. Neither Sandspit nor Queen Charlotte has signed the document, although the idea is being considered in both communities.
“They want to know, what has it done for you?” Mr. Delves said.
