Re: Land Grab (Jan. 9)

In recent letters to the editor, Sebastian Jones has made statements that might lead readers to believe that Joe McIntyre is involved with the Dawson District Renewable Resource Council.

Just to clarify this: Joe submitted his resignation to the DDRRC on April 2012 and is no longer a member of the council. Joe’s comments are his own opinion and not the view of the Dawson District Renewable Resource Council.

The DDRRC is made up of two co-chairs and six members, appointed by Yukon government and the Tr’ondek Hwech’in First Nation. As a council we have policies and procedures that restrict individual members speaking on behalf of the council without prior consent from all the members of the DDRRC.
