The District of Kitimat’s and the Haisla Nation Council’s Christmas message

From the District of Kitimat

As the holiday season approaches, the District of Kitimat Council would like to extend our warmest wishes to our residents, neighbours, and visitors for a safe and joyous holiday season and a happy and prosperous New Year.

This year was a wonderful year for many in our community, and a challenging year for others.

During this holiday season, and all year round, it is important that we remember to look after each other and care for our fellow community members.

Through cooperation and camaraderie, we can foster an exciting and prosperous 2018 for Kitimat and Kitamaat Village. On behalf of Council – happy holidays, and all the best in 2018!

From the Haisla Nation Council

On behalf of Haisla Nation Chief and Council and our administration, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

It has been a very exciting year, as it feels like only yesterday we ushered in 2017.

It has been an eventful year for our Council and community, especially from my perspective as we completed our election in June.

I am honoured to have been elected as Chief Councillor and grateful that I have this opportunity and experience to work with an amazing Council which works hard to set the direction of HNC and a dedicated and supportive administration. Haisla Nation Chief and Council are excited about the opportunities that await us in 2018, and we hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas and New Year. Sincerely, Crystal Smith, Chief Councillor.
