Recently, Percy Guichon, executive director of Central Chilcotin Rehabilitation Ltd. and Councillor of Tŝideldel First Nation, presented to third-year UBC forestry students, providing perspectives on forestry and reconciliation from a First Nation’s viewpoint. Almost 90 students, alongside Professor Gary Bull, learned about the success story of the Tŝideldel First Nation and its impact on land management, community development, and partnerships across British Columbia. Bull emphasized the significance of such opportunities, saying, “It made an impact to have Percy in the classroom, it was the best lecture of the year in my class.
