Letter: FROM THE FIRST NATIONS AND MUNICIPALITIES OF THE NORTH AND CENTRAL COASTS – RE: HAIDA GWAII, NORTH AND CENTRAL COAST TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

“Together with a unified voice and urgent purpose, leaders from across Haida Gwaii and the North and Central coast have attempted to work with the Province and Canada to join us in restricting non-essential travel to our communities. To date, the Province and Canada have failed to uphold their moral and social responsibility to enforce non-essential travel restrictions that would help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our few remaining fluent Haida language speakers and traditional knowledge holders.  The Haida Nation, working with our neighbours, will continue to explore every possible approach to limit non-essential travellers to Haida Gwaii at this time.” — President of the Haida Nation, Gaagwiis Jason Alsop
