Herb Grant took the stand at the Kitimat City Council Meeting on July 19th. He thanked Council for putting him on the agenda and got right down to business.
“What we are trying to do here is we’re trying to get an All Nations Hockey Tournament and the Key word is All Nations, so it’s not All Native like the Basketball,” said Grant. “We’re trying to promote hockey in our nation.”
He asked Council for a grant for the Ice time. He expressed this would be a ten team tournament, double knockout with a $3000 cash prize. He hoped this would be the bridge between Kitimat and Kitamaat Village.
The Tournament Date is set for November. Monaghan reminded him they did not have Quorum so they would not be able to make a decision.
