Two more locals presented with medals REGIONAL DISTRICT OF KitimatStikine chairman Harry Nyce and Don Roberts, the chief councillor of the Kitsumkalum First Nation, have been added to the list of local residents receiving Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals. Nyce, who also represents the Nass Valley

area on the board of the regional district, was presented the medal through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the national organization which represents local and regional governments.

Nyce has been a regional district director for the Nass area since 1988 and regional district chair for seven terms and a vice chair for 10 terms. He’s also served as president of the Union

of BC Municipalities and is an official with the Nisga’a Lisims Government. Roberts has just been re-elected to a term as chief councillor for the Kitsumkalum First Nation.

This will be his fourth two-year term. Skeena NDP MLA Robin Austin, who nominated Roberts to receive one of the four jubilee medals assigned to him, said the presentation reflects the work

Roberts has done. “These medals are about service to community and that’s what Don has done, serve his community,” said Austin. Kitsumkalum has recently opened a quarry

with material being transported to the CN mainline via a spur line. The first nation has also been active in clearing the right of way for BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line.

Planning

starts for new hospital

the Northern Health Authority has taken the first steps down the long road for either a new Mills Memorial Hospital or an extensive renovation of the existing building. It’s hired RPG Planning Consultants to begin putting together an idea of what’s needed here, says authority official Steve Raper. “It’s important to note that this is a thorough planning process that will inform our thinking and government planning for the next 25 years,” said Raper. “Mills Memorial is a top priority.” Current priorities are new hospitals for Haida Gwaii and Burns Lake and money has already been allocated for construction.
