Statement from Pouce Coupe Council

The Village of Pouce Coupe Council has authorized an appeal from the decision of Justice Fitzpatrick, of the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

The Village Council will not be commenting on the appeal while it is before the Court of Appeal other than to say that the Council believed the appeal to be in the public interest.

As the Village Council believes that the appeal is of importance to all municipalities in British Columbia, it has sought funding for the appeal from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities.
