$195 MILLION TO UPGRADE HWYS 37 & 51 INCLUDING INCREASING WIFI ACCESS

"Mining is a part of our culture and economy. For thousands of years, Tahltans prospected, mined and traded obsidian. While we recognize the need for critical minerals for a low-carbon future, this can only happen with the free, prior and informed consent of Indigenous Peoples; therefore, the pace and scale of mining in our territory will be determined by the Tahltan Nation. Today's announcement regarding safer highways for our people is welcomed by the Tahltan Nation."
— Beverly Slater, President, Tahltan Central Government

"Our three Tahltan communities have struggled for generations with safe passage - via highways 37 and 51 - to southern communities where our people depend on the everyday facets of life, including emergency health care, food, and other everyday necessities often taken for granted by many residents of B.C. Resource development must result in the betterment of First Nation communities. While we applaud this announcement, there is more work to do, not only in Tahltan territory, but elsewhere in the province."
— Chief Carmen McPhee, Tahltan Band

"Tahltan leadership and our communities have long advocated for highway improvements for as long as I can remember. Tahltans have no choice but to travel on treacherous roads with zero cell service for hours to access essential services. The Iskut Band remains committed in its dedication to enhancing the safety and well-being of our people and welcome these highway corridor improvements."
— Chief Marie Quock, Iskut Band
