Dear Respected Elders & Tsawout Members;
Re: Upcoming Vote on Membership Law/ Land Code Amendments
Polling when: June 25th, 9 am to 8 pm at Multipurpose Room

In a short time we will be voting (on the same day as the Tsawout Chief & Council Voting Day), June 25th on the following:

  1. New Membership Law that automatically acknowledges Tsawout ancestry;
  2. Land Code Amendments that changes the structure of the Lands Committee, and ratification of any amendments.

It was disappointing that we were short a few voters to pass the Membership Law & Land Code Amendments. However, we did have positive YES votes on these two important issues. We are looking for your positive support once again.

Over the past two and half years we have had open houses and solicited Tsawout membership feedback on the development of the Tsawout Membership Law and Land Code Amendments. Attached is a summary of the Election & Ratification Vote. If you need more information, please come out to the next Info Session or call the LANDS & MEMBERSHIP office at 250 652 9101. The documents are also on our Tsawout website for your reference.

We need 275 overall to vote! We are offering door prizes (Ipad, gas cards and other certificates) to get out and vote for your choice!
