Signing celebration Saturday in Masset

  • Dec. 19, 2007 11:00 a.m.

The first on-island chance to celebrate the signing of the Land Use Agreement takes place this weekend in Masset. The Council of the Haida Nation is hosting a potluck lunch at the Howard Phillips Community Hall on Dec. 22 at 1pm. CHN Vice-president Arnie Bellis says the event will be an opportunity to update islanders and share some food. “We’ll have a stew and that too, so if you can’t bring anything there will be something,” he says. Those planning to attend are asked to bring cutlery and bowls. The lunch is being supported with money raised during Islands Spirit Rising in 2005, says Bill Beldessi, who co-hairs the Community Viability process at the CHN. “It’s recognition of folks on the line and those who supported it,” says Mr. Beldessi. Another celebratory feast is scheduled for around the third week in January, when Premier Gordon Campbell and four cabinet ministers are said to be planning to attend.
