Environmental Certificate Issued

Despite overwhelming public opposition – 91% of the nearly 5,000 comments submitted were opposed to the JGR, opposition from the Ktunaxa-Kinbasket Tribal Council and grizzly bear science that indicated severe impacts to the Purcell grizzly bear population, the 5-year Environmental Certificate for the Jumbo Glacier Resort was granted. The Province declares “the ultimate Jumbo decision is up to region” upholding the local RDEK government’s right to decide land use issues.
