Last Thursday the Wet’su’wet’en held a grand opening for their administration and economic building.
Chief Karen Ogen said it is the grace of God that has guided her through tough times and although her critics are all around she had learned to deal with it. “People see us a small nation, but this is just the beginning. I work for each and every member and government and industry do not realize what we deal with every day. We want better quality of life and I want to see every member employed and no one on welfare, we want more housing and we want everyone to learn the culture and language as there is only five people in our band who speak fluent…my heart is for the people.”
Ogen thanked all the staff and contractors for getting this off the ground.
Elders cut the ribbon and coun. Irwin Tom.
