On National Aboriginal Day, Mayor Lyn Hall joined with Chief Dominic Frederick, and Regional District Chair Art Kaehn, to sign a memorandum of understanding in Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park. It is the first agreement of its kind involving all three governments.
The MoU is guided by the following core values – trust, mutual respect, open listening, cooperation, and understanding – and commits the parties to collaborate, build relationships, cultivate awareness, and provide opportunities for capacity-building.
The text of the MoU was superimposed over an aerial photo of the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers. The notion of confluence was highlighted in the Mayor’s remarks this morning. “The idea of a confluence is where things come together. We are doing that today. Let’s also do it tomorrow and everyday.”
