*POSTPONED* Date TBA: Kwakiutl First Nations Community RALLY in Port Hardy
May 3, 2014
*POSTPONED* Date TBA:
A community rally will be held sometime in the near future by the Kwakiutl First Nation band in Port Hardy on northern Vancouver Island, asking the BC government and major forest companies to respect their land and their treaty. The rally will be in regards to Island Timberlands' logging of a 700 year old ancient redcedar forest near their reserve in late December without consulting the band.
*** Take note it is a 6 hour drive from Victoria to Port Hardy.
Watch a short report on the current situation in Kwakiutl territory in the CTV series, First Story, called "The Treaty and the Trees" from April 16: http://bc.ctvnews.ca/more/first-story/the-treaty-the-trees-1.1779101
