TFN wraps up first legislature
Chief Kim Baird elated at what’s been accomplished after starting from scratch in a post-treaty world

The first full cycle of the Tsawwassen First Nation’s self-government has been a highly productive one, but there’s still much to be done.
In an interview with the Optimist, TFN Chief Kim Baird expressed elation with the job done by her First Nation’s first post-treaty legislature, which has been operating under the unfamiliar territory of self-governance.
“It’s been daunting because we’ve had to create brand new policies and procedures for a brand new governance structure. Now that we’re working our way through it, we have an annual reporting cycle that we’re constantly refining as well, but at least now we’re getting to the point where we’re refining things,” Baird said.
