Premier John Horgan has appointed Nathan Cullen as a liaison between the Province and the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs.
Cullen, a former member of parliament for Skeena-Bulkley Valley, is tasked with acting as an intermediary by providing fact-finding, facilitation and analysis to support a peaceful resolution to the Coastal Gaslink dispute.
“I’m pleased all parties have agreed to the appointment of a liaison,” Premier Horgan said. “Nathan has agreed to act as an intermediary in the hopes of finding a solution to this challenging dispute.”
Cullen will work with the Wet’suwet’en Denezeh and Tsakozeh, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Coastal GasLink, the provincial public service and other parties. His focus will be on de-escalating the conflict surrounding the court-ordered interlocutory injunction regarding access to the Morice West Forest Service Road.
