The People’s Assembly 2015
What would you like to see Huu-ay-aht accomplish within the next four years?
You can answer this question or send your proposals as motions. They can be made on any subject. If you require assistance in the wording of them, the Law Clerk, Kim Chretien, and if necessary legal counsel, is available to help at no cost. If you would like assistance, please contact us as soon as possible and, in any event, by November 2nd to allow us time to draft it before the deadline.
Motions submitted on November 3rd, 2015 will be added to the agenda for the People’s Assembly and included in the public notice. We strongly encourage citizens wishing to bring a motion to do so timely. Motions made after that date can be walked in, but there is no guarantee that they will be considered –the People’s Assembly will need to vote to add them to the agenda. In addition, the Executive Council will prepare and circulate reports on any motions on the agenda as of November 3rd, 2015, allowing you to be informed on the issues they will be asked to consider.
