Clint Williams was elected hegus (chief) on Sept. 10 in Tla’amin Nation’s first election after its treaty was implemented in April 2016. He is pictured here with Sliammon Development Corporation’s manager Kelly Rankin.
Eight Legislators were elected by Tla’amin voters. They are, in order of votes received:
Tyrone Wilson, Lori Sparrow, Larry Louie, Gloria Francis, John Hackett, Denise Smith, Brian Hackett and Shawn Louie.
After the swearing-in ceremony, an executive council of four members was voted in by the legislators and the hegus followed by the selection of committees and portfolios for the new governing body.
