Chief Ed Pierre

The Katzie First Nations Band will be looking for a new chief, after Ed Pierre announced his resignation last week. Reached by The News, Pierre declined to comment on his reasons for leaving.

The band has approximately 530 members in the communities of Pitt Meadows, Barnston Island and Fort Langley. They will vote for a new chief in an election which is to be held 45 days after Pierre’s Aug. 6 resignation.

There will be a pre-election meeting and nominations. Nobody has publicly declared their intention to run for the job.

The band’s leadership presently falls on to three members of council: Robin Green, Lisa Adams and Leslie Bailey.
