By now all ‘Namgis members should have received a VOTING PACKAGE for the upcoming referendum mailed to you by the Nation’s Electoral Officer, which contains the materials and instructions for voting. (If you have not received it, please contact our Membership Clerk asap.) Next week we will mail out an INFORMATION PACKAGE, which contains important information about the questions at stake in the vote. We ask you to look carefully at the information in the package before you vote, and attend one of the community meetings if you can. The meetings will be held on these dates:
Vancouver – Saturday, June 8, 1:00 pm – Aboriginal Friendship Centre, 1607 E Hastings St.
Victoria – Sunday, June 9, 11:00-2:00 (lunch) – Ambrosia Centre, 638 Fisgard St.
Nanaimo – Sunday, June 9, 7:00 pm – Coast Bastion Hotel, 11 Bastion St.
Alert Bay – Monday, June 10, 7:00 pm – Lawrence Ambers Memorial Recreation Centre
Please note that electronic voting will be open today, but we ask you to WAIT TO VOTE until you’ve received and read the information package, and if possible, attended a community meeting. Thank you from the ‘Namgis Administration.
