SFN Annual General Meeting
The Snuneymuxw First Nation had a successful turn out of over 80 community members to the Annual General Assembly held on Wednesday, September 30th. Each of the departments had information tables set up loaded with material to share with the community. All the Departments: Social development and Family Preservation, Lands and Resources, Health, Community Housing and Infrastructure, Education, and Administration all had not only information to share, but DOOR PRIZES for the community.
The community members present asked important questions about the audited financial statements for the 2014/2015 fiscal year. Concerns such as: Making sure the budget is followed, and if it is not, that a note be added to explain the difference; ensuring that tobacco licenses held and/or issued by the nation benefit everyone; inquiring about how off-reserve members can be included in the store Christmas Hamper; noting that there is currently no one on council who is “off reserve” and wanting to make sure the off reserve members have a voice.
We will ensure that there is more time to ask questions and receive feedback at our next AGM.
We thank everyone who took the time to be there to receive the audit report and participate in the AGM. Huy tseep qu Siem.

We sincerely appreciate everyone’s support.

Bouquet for John Moreno and Terry Jones
I would like to send a Bouquet for John Moreno and Terry Jones. On Sunday September 20, 2015, we travelled to Newcastle for a meeting.
I want to thank John and Terry for helping our Elder Rose Scow, they carried her onto the band boat, and they treated her with the utmost respect.
As for Rose, we all know she never likes to miss a meeting. I raise my hands up to John and Terry, and thank you.
