Royal Roads, Esquimalt sign framework
The Times Colonist and Black Press covered the signing of a framework agreement June 12 between Royal Roads University and the Esquimalt Nation. The agreement outlines how the university and nation will work together throughout the Department of National Defence (DND) land disposition process.
Here is an excerpt from Black Press:
RRU president and vice-chancellor Philip Steenkamp said the agreement is similar to the one signed with the Songhees Nation because it defines parameters for all parties to work together in the spirit of collaboration.
‘We will continue to work with Esquimalt Nation to gather and share information regarding the important history and ecology of these lands. Together we will define the boundaries of the campus lands for the university’s continued and successful operation,’ Steenkamp noted in the release.
