Honourable Steve Thomson
Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations
Dear Minister Thomson:
I am writing on behalf of [your organization] to express our concern about the state of British Columbia’s heritage program, which has been very well described by Heritage BC in “A Call to Renew British Columbia’s Heritage Program”.
We believe that heritage conservation is basic to quality of life and the sense of place that is distinctive to each community. Maintaining our heritage resources is a positive investment in the local economy and important stimulus to tourism. Heritage conservation should also be a part of a sustainable future.
We support Heritage BC’s call to renew the provincial heritage program and the five recommendations for action. The provincial government should be a leader in heritage conservation and a strong partner with B.C. communities as they strive to conserve their irreplaceable historic resources. Our province once had the best heritage program in Canada, but little now remains. It is time to invest in and rebuild the provincial heritage program, for the sake of our communities and all British Columbians.
Thank you for your consideration.
Premier Christy Clark
