Reconsider protocol agreement, says economic development com

  • May. 12, 2006 8:00 p.m.

Port Clements’s economic development committee is asking council to reconsider the protocol agreement the village signed two years ago with the Council of the Haida Nation.
The committee’s request is on the agenda for Monday night’s village council meeting (May 15).
The committee is asking council “to write a letter advising the CHN of council’s intent of revisiting the protocol agreement as per section 6. Also, this letter should be forwarded to the provincial government.”
Section 6 of the protocol agreement states: “This accord is a living document, subject to changes identified through community dialogue and agreement.”
Port Clements and Masset signed the protocol agreement with the CHN in March 2004, and Area D signed it in February of this year after getting the green light from the regional district, which hired a lawyer to review the document.
The protocol agreement commits the parties to work together to create a sustainable islands economy, to hold regular public meetings, and to work together on other issues. It also recognizes the co-existence of crown and Haida aboriginal title here.
