Letters: Rescuing the cats

Cat rescue society offers support to evicted residents

We are writing this letter to express our sadness for the residents and animals victims of the Scia’new Marina’s short eviction notice. Last year we had opportunity to meet many of the people living in the campsite and we have only good things to say about them. All the people we met were extremely generous and helpful assisting us in every way they could in our cat rescue mission.

Contrarily to the wonderful help we received from the Scia’new residents, other animal rescue groups before us had only found barriers while trying to save the animals abandoned at the Beecher Bay area.

Therefore, with all our respect, we would like to ask the Cheanuh elders to leave a constructive lesson of compassion, peace and love to those individuals who need more time to find a place they can call home with their pets.

In addition, we beg the Cheanuh elders to allow us to continue our mission of saving the starving and ill cats in their area. The politicians who broke Sir James Douglas’ land promise to the First Nation people are all buried now and the Canadians of today we are a mix of cultures and backgrounds. Please, let’s all work together to make our country and, in this case, your area a beautiful place for tourists to visit.
