Columbia River Shoreline
The Alliance is proposing that additional public meetings should be held and convened by a neutral facilitator, that a definitive position of CTUIR and other impacted tribes on the matter be in place, that Columbia River treaty negotiations between the US and Canada conclude, and that a true community-wide discussion and vetting of any proposed legislative proposal occurs. Any reconveyance must be done in a mindful way, i.e. with environment protections, tribal involvement and recreational access for all.
