Still time to help shape the future of the Columbia River Treaty

CRT meetings are returning to Nakusp on Nov. 6 to gather more input from the public about the treaty.

Another round of consultations to be held this fall with Columbia Basin residents was announced by Minister Bill Bennett on Sept. 28, following the release of the “Public Consultation Report Working Draft.”

The report was drafted during three information sessions and workshops held throughout the region, including those in Nakusp and Fauquier, between May 2012 and June 2013. Online feedback and comments were also collected via the Columbia River Treaty Review website.

The Province will be holding additional community meetings in early November to gather more feedback from Basin residents, and will be coming to Nakusp on Nov. 6. To view the “Public Consultation Report Working Draft” and provide online feedback visit www.gov.bc.ca/columbiarivertreaty
