Xatśūll First Nation in the interior of B.C. says it’s hoping to bring in tourist dollars by investing in a multi-million dollar project that includes reopening an historic gas station and restaurant.
Kúkpi7 Sheri Sellars says the band will renovate the Soda Creek Emporium.
“We would like to re-invigorate Soda Creek again and start to bring things back to there; we’re just trying to do it phase by phase to get that completed, but it’s just been so quiet down there, and that’s not a normal community to not have that hub opened up and us gathering in different ways,” she says.
In partnership with the Xatśūll Development Corp., the band will spend $3.8 million for the site to reopen.
It will also include a seasonal museum and electric car charging stations.
