Transportation on Highway 16 has been a topic of discussion for Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad.

Recently the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs has been meeting with different communities on how to address moving people and goods along the highway.

He says communities like Fort St. James, Burns Lake and Vanderhoof says have already started to look at what they need in the area.

Rustad says talks with First Nations will also take place around transportation.

He says these consultations don’t guarantee a transportation system, it is just looking at what can be achieved.
