Nisga’a Nation seeks funding to expand Cranberry Connector

The Nisga’a Lisims Government now have the support of Terrace City Council in their efforts to expand the Cranberry Connector.

During yesterday’s regular meeting, City Council agreed to sign a letter of support as the Nisga’a Nation seeks 432 thousand dollars from the BC Rural Dividends Fund.

The funding would go towards expanding the Cranberry Connector to allow for the accomodation of increased traffic, including tour buses and emergency vehicles.

Expanding the Connector could mean a boost to tourism in the area as it would increase traffic to the Welcome House Cafe and Hill Trails and River Walk project.

The project is expected to cost 660 thousand dollars total.

The Nisga’a Nation was granted an extension to seek the revised letter by the BC Rural Dividend Fund.
