A fresh round of Columbia River Treaty consultation workshops is starting up again this November to discuss the findings of the last 22 community meetings.
In collaboration with local governments and the Columbia Basin Trust (CBT), the B.C. government has put together an overview of the treaty’s negative impacts and what has been done for compensation so far. Residents are asked to make a reasoned judgement on whether more needs to be done or if what’s been done is adequate.
The workshops will be taking place in Jaffray, Creston, Revelstoke, Golden, Valemount, Nelson, Trail and Nakusp. The Golden workshop is set for Wednesday, November 21 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Golden Civic Centre at 898 Highway 95. The session in Trail will be streamed live — register for free at www.surveymonkey.com/s/rivertreaty.
