The residents of border straddling Stewart, BC and Hyder, Alaska continue on with their efforts to get a bit of common sense to prevail in Ottawa and allow the two communities to include each other in their social distance bubbles.
As we noted last month, the main focus of their concern is education, with Hyder children relying on the Stewart school for their education and with the ongoing border closure, class remains out for those on the Alaska side of the border gate.
Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach once again has taken their concerns to the Federal government, asking for special consideration of the unique situation presented by the Hyder situation, which for the most part has their residents all but isolated from their own state and currently barred, except in certain circumstances, from entering Stewart where much of their commercial and social life is found.
