Every year the Haisla hold a cultural basketball tournament in Kitamaat Village. The mayor of Kitimat, Joanne Monaghan is always invited to present the championship women’s team with their trophy, however this year is unlike any other.

With Kitimat preparing to go to the polls this weekend to decide whether or not to support Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, the Haisla took the opportunity to send the mayor a message.
