A ceremonial signing of the Cooperation and Benefits Agreement between the High Bar First Nation and HDI Constantia Resources took place on Feb. 2 in Clinton.

MLA Jackie Tegart, High Bar Chief Larry Fletcher, the Band Council and employees, Mayor Jim Rivett and Clinton councillors Diana Guerin and Susan Swan and several HDI Constantia executives gathered for the signing at the High Bar Office in Clinton and proceeded to the High Bar property at the north of town where the greenhouses, grow shed and house were toured.

High Bar is starting a grow operation for bedding plants, native plants and silviculture. It was obvious that a great deal of work had gone into the plans and construction.

The signing ceremony began with a traditional smudging to clear the air and open peoples hearts and minds to working together.

Gifts were exchanged between the various parties and a lovely lunch was provided back at the High Bar Office by the Mill Girl Follies.
