The members of the First Nations Leadership Council were profoundly saddened to hear of the passing of Chief Roy Mussell. We extend our deepest condolences to you and your family during this difficult time.
Chief Mussell was a great leader, businessman, environmental advocate, academic, and humanitarian, whose work has made true positive differences in the lives of First Nations people. He served with great distinction as Chief of Skwah First Nation, the Vice-President of the Fraser Basin Council Society, Vice-President of the Ch-ihl-kway-uhk Tribe Society, President of Ch-ihl-kway-uhk Forestry Ltd., as well as in many capacities relating to Aboriginal Human Resources Development Agreements. His contributions to these fields were extraordinary and meaningful, and his presence will be deeply missed.
We were proud to have known Roy – he was a colleague, mentor, and true friend to many. We are confident that Roy’s achievements will serve as an inspiration both to us as First Nations people, as well as to many others across the country, for many years to come.
Again, we extend our true condolences to you and your family in this time of grief. We would be honoured to provide any support that you may require; please do not hesitate to contact us if we can contribute in any way.
