Should add...the Unist'ot'en proposed a different route through their territory, one that wouldn't go through the mountain area they are trying to protect.

The cities of Smithers, Telkwa, and Houston have been built on their unceeded territory, along with farms, massive logging and mining operations...with no compensation or taxation going their way. This one valley system is a small percentage of their traditional territory which remains close to pristine.

It's just over the mountains from where I live.

So the border will be closed to the end of July. Do you think the closure will be extended again? I wonder how crowded Prideaux Haven will be this year with no yanks?

Fortunately the new Echo Bay will be quite easy to assess in a year or two. Of course this before and after comparison assumes one spent time there when Pierre and Tove were running the place.

The first bit of news will be the website and Facebook postings detailing events, happenings and wildlife photos. Then the Echo Bay Events (a fun group of parties and great food) meeting schedule. Fingers crossed the transition will be positive.

Now back to opening the border (boarder?). I say August which will allow Quebecers and Washingtonians two more months to get their respective houses in order.
