Question of the Week | April 11

Is it time to drop the question of Thornhill governance?

BACKGROUND: The Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine (RDKS) stopped its Thornhill Governance Study from proceeding to the second stage due to an underwhelming amount of public input.


The RDKS launched their community outreach program mid-June last year to hear from Thornhill residents and businesses whether they would like to explore other options of governance. Only five per cent of approximately 3,100 adults engaged.

“There was no demonstration that the community wanted us to look at different governance options at this time,” says Ted Pellegrino, RDKS manager of planning and development services. “That’s what the feeling is, to leave it for now and if there’s really a community motivation to look at a different governance option for Thornhill, then it can be looked at in the future.”
