Over the years, we have heard many Squamish Nation members share concerns around the impacts of CN Rail train activity through and/or next to our reserves in North Vancouver and the Squamish Valley.
After an informative meeting with the City of North Vancouver and CN Rail, the Squamish Nation will be reconvening a working group comprised of Nation representatives, CN Rail, and other levels of government to discuss community concerns around idling, air quality, noise pollution, and other disruptive train-related activities.
We have now launched a survey to collect detailed reports from affected members. These reports will help us to:
1. Understand and articulate the exact nature of members’ concerns, including details of how the train activity is negatively impacting members’ lives;
2. Develop a set of recommendations for consideration by CN Rail and responsible government bodies, with the aim of mitigating these concerns as much as possible; and
3. Advocate on behalf of impacted members to CN Rail and various other levels of government.
The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes.
Online survey deadline: Sunday, January 3, 11:59 pm.
Members can also call 604-982-0510 until Friday, December 18 at 4:30 pm to complete the survey by telephone.
Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important.
Members can also download a letter from Peter Baker, Director of Rights & Title, here to learn more about the Nation’s advocacy and engagement work relating to CN Rail concerns.
