World Food Day at Our Daily Bread, Nelson
The Kootenays are one of the best places on Earth. We all experience moments when we take a deep breath of the clean air and look up at the mountains and say in awe, “I live here.” The people in our communities are equally awesome.
Protecting what makes our region so special while building upon its assets is the legacy we will leave future generations. I am honoured to be a part of that as your provincial representative.
I’ve been hearing some concerns about logging in our region and wanted you to know what I have been doing on these issues with a post here.
First, I have brought up these concerns directly to the Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development on several occasions and either his office has responded directly to local residents or I have relayed information on his and the ministry’s behalf.
In addition, I have been working with Ymir residents since Spring 2017 to ensure the quality and quantity of their water source. This Fall, I wrote and sent a letter to all Ymir residents with an update on this important issue and have included it below in case anyone hasn’t received it.
I have also personally met with long-time Argenta residents regarding their concern for Argenta face and my office continues to work with them so that the Ministry of Forests and they have an open line of communication and the community has the information they need for their advocacy.
Along with presenting petitions collected by those wanting to ensure good forest practices in Argenta area, I have presented similar petitions to the Legislative Assembly in Victoria for Laird Creek near Balfour.
MLA Michelle Mungall will be taking to the phone lines on Monday October 15th at 7:00 pm for an hour-long live telephone town hall. Everyone is invited. Take part and get the conversation going on what matters most to you and our community.
