Over 200 take part in treaty information session

Over 200 people participated from across the Columbia Basin in last Monday’s Columbia River Treaty Information Session, ‘Canada-U.S. Negotiations: Where We Are and What’s to Come.’

Participants asked a wide variety of questions on the process for modernizing the Treaty and how key interests are being considered as part of Canada-U.S. negotiations.

Some of the topics raised included: Treaty reservoir levels, Upper Columbia salmon reintroduction, ecosystems, climate change, flood risk management, hydropower generation, and fair and equitable sharing of benefits between the two countries. People also asked about Indigenous Nations’ and U.S. Tribes’ participation in the Treaty modernization process, and how the views of younger populations and underrepresented groups are being included.

A recording is now available for anyone who would like to re-watch or was unable to attend.

A report summarizing the event and responding to the questions raised will be shared in the near future.

To help us organize future sessions that meet your needs, we request your feedback on a brief survey.
