The Splatsin First Nation near Enderby will share revenues from the Cranberry Creek hydroelectric project, located 25 km south of Revelstoke, thanks to a new agreement with the province. “The Cranberry Creek area is of high cultural value to Splatsin and the Secwepemc Nation,” said Wayne Christian, chief of Splatsin. “This agreement confirms our interests in the resources of the area. We expect all clean energy development to be developed responsibly and sustainably in partnership with First Nations.”
