This week Merritt was buzzing about more charges laid against Michael Drynock, Lower Nicola’s new Chief, and forestry relief funding.
More Charges for Michael Drynock
The man at the center of a Canada Day long weekend disturbance has been formally charged six weapons-related offenses.
New Lower Nicola Chief Stuart Jackson
Over the weekend Stuart Jackson was elected Chief of the Lower Nicola Indian Band. After serving on Council for 15-years before the last two terms, Jackson decided the time was right to re-enter the political world.
Ministry Confirms 2016 Tolko Closure won't Factor into Relief Funding
When asked directly for clarity about the Tolko closure, the Ministry referred to the second statement, and particularly the section reading “experienced this year”.
My favourite story this week is about a great new program to help your fellow Merrittonians.
