On April 28, 2023, Creston RCMP officers had the honour of attending the Yaqan Nukiy (Lower Kootenay Band) Community BBQ. The officers were able to meet Yaqan Nukiy community members and share a great meal from the band’s own farm and a local business.

Creston’s newest Corporal, Jan Ruefli, stated, I really enjoyed getting to visit with local band members. I am new to Creston, and this was a great way for me to get to know the community members. I was so grateful that Nasukin and Council extended this invitation to our officers. We all had a great time at this amazing event.

Nasukin Jason Louie said, The BBQ was a great event in our community, which includes our local RCMP officers. It was nice to have us all together to share a meal, and to continue developing meaningful relationships with the RCMP officers.

"We are very grateful for being included in this, and the many other activities with the Yaqan Nukiy Community members. I'd like to thank Nasukin Jason Louie for extending his invitation and for the hospitality while hosting us. It is truly a pleasure to be serving the Yaqan Nukiy Community and I look forward to future events," stated S/Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk, Creston RCMP Commander.

All the officers who attended enjoyed spending time with the Yaqan Nukiy community members. Smiles and laughs were shared by all who attended.
