Dear Premier Campbell:

Re: Closure of Government Offices

In a letter dated March 27, 2002, you responded to our concern about closure of the Kispiox Forest District office in Hazeleton. It is clear the provincial government does not share our view that maintaining these types of government services locally is absolutely vital.

At the April 20 Regional Board meeting, Directors reviewed your letter and were extremely disappointed in the response. Government services in the rural regions of British Columbia are being systematically dismantled to meet the current government's budget goals. This will be a great cost to the long-term health of northern and rural communities. While some of these services will be centralized elsewhere, we have no expectation better economic conditions will see government offices reopen in our area. Closure of Forest Service offices, Ministry of Transportation cutbacks, closure of Corrections Branch facilities will have a significant cumulative and negative effect.

Many of the communities that will lose these government services worked very hard to acquire these facilities, as an economic generator and to achieve some equity in receiving service. The workers employed in government offices and their families bring professional and technical skills to community that are invaluable to community growth and development. We cannot support current policies of the province that disproportianately places the burden for resolving the province's budgetary problems on the backs of rural British Columbia

Yours truly

Mr. Harry Nyce
