The District of Tofino sends our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Chantel Moore (Martin), to the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation, and to Chantel's extended Nuu-chah-nulth family.
Our hearts, along with the hearts of all West Coast residents, are deeply saddened by the knowledge that the life of a young Tla-o-qui-aht woman has been tragically cut short.
We are privileged to serve our community in Tla-o-qui-aht territory, and in these difficult times when we cannot gather together to express grief and console each other, we are reminded of the Nuu-chah-nulth principle his-shuk-nish-tsa-waak (we are all one).
As our communities engage in important and difficult conversations about race, violence and inequality, the District of Tofino remains committed to listening, looking inward, and working for all West Coast residents.
