WHEREAS the coastal communities of British Columbia are at risk of significant loss of life in the event of a tsunami;

AND WHEREAS the key to effectively managing the risk within each community, in the event of a Tsunami, is a warning system;

AND WHEREAS many coastal communities have limited financial resources to provide critical emergency response services:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NCLGA and UBCM lobby the Provincial Government to increase financial support for all coastal communities to provide emergency response warnings systems.
