Premiere Horgan thanks Seabird Island for help during November floods

‘We cannot say thank you enough,’ Horgan wrote

The Seabird Island community got some very public recognition on social media.

Premiere John Horgan tweeted a thank you to the many community members at Seabird Island who helped stranded travellers during the November landslides that stranded hundreds of people in the Agassiz area.

“In the recent flooding and mudslides, whole communities helped out neighbours in need,” Horgan tweeted. “One of many examples was the Seabird Island First Nations, where evacuees were welcomed and meals were provided to people stranded on the highway. We cannot say thank you enough.”
