B.C. Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation John Rustad, comments... "I applaud the vision and commitment of the Lax Kw'alaams and Metlakatla leadership and their communities. This kind of collaboration with First Nations will underpin the economic security of their communities now and in the future and create greater certainty for the First Nations, industry and government."
