The Board of Directors of the White Lake Resources Corp. today acknowledged the passing of former Gimaa (Chief) John Kwissiwa.
John was a strong champion of economic development and was fiercely committed to a principle of community ownership and equitable sharing of benefits in business development, which was and continues to be a core foundation of the White Lake Limited Partnership. As part of his longstanding role as holder of the Economic Development Portfolio for the Band Council, John served as the Council liaison to the White Lake board of directors, where he was an engaged contributing member of our many initiatives. His wisdom and energy will be missed, and we remain committed to carrying out the initiatives that he seeded and inspired.
The Board extends its sincere condolences to Gimaa Kwe Johanna Desmoulin and their entire family in this difficult time and we say Miigwetch to you for sharing your beloved John with us in carrying out our works which he so strongly believed in and supported.
