Public helps shape the future of Treaty

Another round of consultations with residents of the Columbia River Basin will be scheduled following the release of a new draft.

Another round of consultations with residents of the Columbia River Basin will be scheduled following the release of the “Public Consultation Report Working Draft.”

The report provides a comprehensive summary of the input received from the public and key findings as the Columbia River Treaty Review Team prepares its recommendations to Cabinet.

Further public input is being sought to ensure regional interests help shape the future of the Columbia River Treaty.

The views expressed in the draft report were collected during three rounds of information sessions and workshops throughout the region, including Jaffray, Creston, Nakusp, Castlegar, Trail, Fauquier, Valemount, Golden and Revelstoke from May 2012 to June 2013.

Comments and feedback were also collected online through the Columbia River Treaty Review website. The province is seeking further public feedback and will hold additional community meetings in early November.

The provincial Columbia River Treaty Review is conducting economic, environmental, social, financial, legal and hydrological analyses in order to make a decision on whether to continue, amend or terminate the Columbia River Treaty with the United States.

To view and provide feedback on the “Public Consultation Report Working Draft” and learn more about the Columbia River Treaty Review visit: www.gov.bc.ca/columbiarivertreaty.
