VANCOUVER/CKNW(AM980) - That question was on the minds of many Point Grey residents as the Provincial Government negotiates with the Musqueam First Nation.
People living in the University Endowment Lands say they have plenty of questions about the Province's negotiations with the Musqueam Band. A settlement may include giving the Band the UBC Golf Course.
Helen James sought legal advice to see how residents could make their views known, "And, at the end of the day, the only thing that you would get would be a seat at the table. But, at that point, that opens things up and it's no longer a private deal that's being negotiated between the Musqueam and the Provincial Government. It would allow people to be included."
James says her MLA, Premier Gordon Campbell, has not responded to any of her letters.
Other residents say they're also worried a settlement may include handing over pieces of Pacific Spirit Park.
