Visitors attracted by the Joint Review Panel the next day stopped by to check it out including Josh Paterson who was up from Vancouver on behalf of Westcoast Environmental Law, and a reporter from the L.A. Times.

The night was put on by The Fort St. James Sustainability Group and was a source of encouragement for the people set to speak before the Joint Review Panel (JRP) the next day.

“This was very supportive for all of us speaking,” said Kandice Kerr, a member of The Fort St. James Sustainability Group, and a presenter at the JRP.

With an all-star cast of Mel Chesnutt, Mystery Cowboy and Harold Isaac, all MCed by Lionel Conant the evening offered a lot of entertainment to go with it’s rebellious spirit.
