Columbia River Treaty meetings coming up this fall around the Basin

A series of meetings start later this fall, to update Columbia Basin Communities about the current Columbia River Treaty negotiations.

Katrine Conroy, the BC Minister Responsible for the treaty, says they'll also be seeking public input, saying it's vital they stay connected with basin communities and engage them in a way that wasn't done with the treaty was first drafted.

The meetings will include presentations by Indigenous Nations on their ongoing study of ecosystems in the Columbia Basin, as well as an update on how the Province is working to address community interests.

Sessions are in October and November, with the first local one Thursday October 29th in Creston at the Complex.

There's also one in Genelle November 12th, Nelson November 13th, and dates following that in Meadow Creek, Nakusp and Fauquier.
