Two Totem Poles carved by a Canim Lake First Nations artist were unveiled at the Bridge Lake Ice Caves Heritage Site this past weekend to mark a milestone for the Jobs Creation Partnership Program.
We caught up with the artist, Jerome Boyce, who tells us what it meant to him to have his art on display.
“I’m flattered and honored to have my work here and it’s good to know that our heritage is being preserved with programs like this.”
The New Pathways to Gold Society’s JCP Project crew was also thanked for the hard work they have put in on all 4 components of the initiative over the past year.
Work completed at the Ice Caves during the project includes a 2.5 km low-mobility trail, bear proof waste containers, picnic tables/benches, outhouses and the parking lot which will be completed once warmer weather arrives.
