great-bear-rainforestVICTORIA— B.C. New Democrat Leader, John Horgan, issued the following statement on the signing of the Great Bear Rainforest agreement:

“The Great Bear Rainforest agreement is a tremendous achievement for all involved. First Nations, environmental organizations, local communities and the forest industry should be commended for continuing to work towards finalizing this landmark agreement.

“We are proud to have played a role in starting the process when the New Democrats were in government.

“The agreement shows how important it is to have the full involvement of First Nations when determining the future of B.C.’s environment, resources, culture and economy. Too often, Premier Christy Clark leaves First Nations behind in pursuit of her political agenda.”
